Guacamole is a Mexican accompaniment served often with nachos, tacos, and even tortilla wraps. Grilling the outer surface of the bread enhances crunchiness and the cheese, well I like using a whole lot of cheese because I’m a cheese freak.
The base of the application of this recipe is from an ordinary grilled cheese sandwich.
INGREDIENTS (SERVES 2)
- 8 slices of bacon
- 4 slices of bread
- 2 tablespoon butter
- 1 1/2 cup of grated cheddar cheese
- 12 tablespoons guacamole.
Guacamole is a very easy accompaniment to make.All you need is
- 1 whole ripe avocado (not overly ripe)
- Half a tomato deseeded and cut into dices.
- 1/4 finely chopped onions
- 2 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice (this is to prevent the guacamole from turning black, oxidation)
- 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
- Salt and pepper to taste
PROCEDURE FOR GUACAMOLE.
Carefully peel the avocado, place it in a bowl then using a wooden ladle or spoon mash the avocado.
Add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well.
If you want to increase the Shelf life of the guacamole do not use the tomatoes.
PROCEDURE FOR THE GRILLED CHEESE.
In a hot pan cook the bacon until it is crispy and set aside on paper towels to drain the excess fat. It is advisable to neither use additional oil nor seasoning as bacon contains its own fat and it has its own natural salty sweetish flavor.
Butter one side of each slice of bread, Sprinkle half the cheese onto unbuttered side of two slices of bread, followed by the guacamole (you can carefully layer it on the surface using a spoon), place four bacon strips on each bread slice, sprinkle the remaining cheese and finally place the remaining slices of bread on top with the buttered side up.
Using a grilling pan or a non-stick pan, grill over medium heat both sides until golden brown and the cheese has melted. (Take 2 – 3 minutes per side not more because you may end up burning the guacamole)
The dish can be served as a snack alongside a soft drink, enjoy!
