  • For the Guacamole Base: In a medium mixing bowl, combine all ingredients, mashing the avocados as you go. You are looking to achieve a relatively smooth consistency with small lumps of avocado. Check the seasoning, adding more salt or lime juice if needed.
  • For the Bacon and Blue Cheese: Preheat your oven to 400F. Lay the bacon out on a sheet tray in a single layer and cook for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy and golden brown. Remove it to a paper towel to blot some of the fat off. Next, crumble it into the guacamole, adding the blue cheese as well. Give it a taste and add more blue cheese if desired.
  • For the Crab: Fold in the crab gently then check for seasoning, adding more lime juice or cilantro if needed.
  • For the Goat Cheese and Mint: Crumble the goat cheese into the guacamole and fold it in along with the mint.
