Summer is the season for sweet corn, sun-ripened tomatoes, and countless outdoor shindigs. And, let’s be real—bacon is always in season.
Once the outdoor cooking season kicks off, it only makes sense to combine avocados and tomatoes with the smoky sweet flavors of charred sweet corn and bacon. You’ve been forewarned, this guacamole will be on heavy rotation.
