Cobb Guacamole

When I saw this recipe for Cobb Guacamole on Strawberry Cake, I decided right then and there that I was going to make this fabulous looking dip my best girlfriends from college came to visit. I am a fiend for guacamole anyway and this guac is filled with the goodness of a cobb salad: corn, tomatoes, onion, bacon, blue cheese - do I really need to go on? Make this scrumptious dip the next time you have guests, need to bring an appetizer for a picnic or get together, or if you just want something incredible to pig out on! I made taco salad for dinner that night and it was even better topped with a dollop of this delicious cobb guac.

Cobb Guacamole
3 avocados
1 small sweet onion, diced
1 large roma tomato, 2 if small, diced
1 cup canned corn (sweet, no salt added), drained (I used fresh corn on the cob that I boiled first)
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese
4 slices thick bacon, fried up crispy
1 clove garlic, minced
6 leaves of fresh basil, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
fresh ground pepper, to taste
a dash of Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sugar

Mix the avocado, onion, corn, and tomato together in a medium sized bowl.
Whisk the dressing ingredients together and pour over the avocados and mix around, squishing the avocados a little as you do. When ready to serve, sprinkle the blue cheese on top, then put the crumbled bacon on top of that. Serve with Tostitos Scoops and enjoy!
