3 Bacon Strips

3 Avocados, peeled and seeded

2 TBS Red Onion, diced

1/4 Cup Cilantro, fresh, chopped

1 Garlic Clove, crushed and minced

1 Serrano Chile, seeded and diced

1 TBS Lime Juice

1/8 Tsp Paprika

1/8 Tsp Black Sea Salt


Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and add bacon strips.

Cook bacon until crisp, about 3 minutes. Turn over and cook other side, about 2 minutes.

When completely cooked, remove from heat and place bacon strips on a folded paper towel to drain.

While bacon cools, dice avocado into 1/2 inch cubes.

Crumble cooked bacon strips. Place avocado and bacon in a large mixing bowl along with red onion, cilantro, garlic clove, serrano chile, lime juice, paprika and black sea salt.

Cover bowl with a lid or plastic wrap and place tube of the PolyScience Smoking Gun™ under the plastic and into the bowl.

Turn on the PolyScience Smoking Gun™and light the wood chips.

When chips are all burned and bowl is filled with smoke, remove tube and completely seal the bowl.

Let smoke sit for 5 minutes and then remove the cover.

Coarsely mash the ingredients together and serve immediately.

What would be a couple of wood flavors to try?

I’ve made this dip several times and it’s always a hit with our friends. It’s also simple to make!
