  2. With a large spoon, scoop the avocado flesh into a medium bowl. Mash it with a large fork until it’s chunky-smooth.

  4. Taste the guacamole on a chip or cracker, then adjust seasoning with salt. If it tastes flat, add another ½ to 1 teaspoon vinegar.

To Serve:

  1. Transfer to a serving bowl, then garnish with reserved blue cheese and bacon.

  2. This guacamole is best enjoyed within 2 hours. Refrigerate leftovers for up to 1 day.
