This guacamole is the perfect appetizer or healthy snack. It is packed with red onion, jalapeño, cilantro, and a zesty tomatillo garlic and lime salsa. And to bring it all together it is then topped with crunchy bacon.


Units Scale
  • 1 16 oz jar 505 Southwestern® Tomatillo Garlic & Lime Salsa (Medium), (only need 1/4 cup)
  • 2 Ripe Hass Avocados, pitted and scooped
  • 1/2 Lime, freshly squeezed juice
  • 1/2 tsp Fine Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1 bunch Fresh Cilantro (need 2 tbsp)
  • 12 Jalapeño Pepper, diced
  • Red Onion, finely diced
  • 8 oz Kite Hill Sour Cream Alternative (only need 1 tbsp)
  • 1 Bacon Strip, cooked and roughly broken up
  • 8 6-inch White Corn Tortillas
  • 1 tbsp Avocado Oil
  • Fine Sea Salt


  1. Make the chips: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Brush both sides of the tortillas with the oil. Stack the tortillas and, with a pizza cutter, cut the pile into sixths to make chips. Spread the chips out, in a single layer, on one large baking sheet and season with salt.
  2. Bake: Bake until golden brown and crisp, about 12-15 minutes. Remove to a plate to cool slightly.
  3. Make the guacamole: While the chips bake, prepare all the other ingredients. To a glass bowl, add the tomatillo salsa, cilantro, jalapeño, onion and sour cream. Season with salt, pepper and cumin and stir to combine.
  4. Mash and stir: Add the avocados and mash with a fork. (Be sure to leave it a bit chunky for texture). Gently stir in the lime juice until just incorporated.
  5. How to serve: Transfer to a mortar and pestle or a different glass bowl. Serve with baked tortilla chips or use for tacos and tostadas, sandwiches or a crudités platter.


  • Red Onion: If using a large one, cut about 1/3 off and use what you want from that. Add more or less to taste. 
  • Cream: If using real sour cream, just replace it at a 1:1 ratio.  
  • Peppers: Serrano peppers can also work as a substitute.
