  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 3 strips of belly bacon (smoked, not honey-cured)
  • 2 medium tomato
  • 2 red onions
  • 3 to 4 bird’s eye chilies
  • salt to taste
  • juice of 1 to 1 and 1/2 limes (or lemon)
  • a small bunch of cilantro (reserve a few of the best leaves for garnish)
  • 1/2 tsp dried sage leaves
  • 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese


  • Fry the bacon in a non-stick pan until browned and crisp. Crumble and set aside.
  • Cut the avocado flesh into small pieces, roughly 1/4 inch cubes.
  • Scoop out the seeds of the tomatoes. Roughly chop the flesh.
  • Roughly chop the onion, chilies and cilantro as well.
  • Toss all the ingredients in a bowl just until combined.
  • Spoon into two to three small bowls, garnish with cilantro (and more blue cheese, if you like) and serve with tortilla chips or toasted bread.
