Fresh Corn Dip with Bacon, Avocado and Tomatoes

Fresh Corn Dip with Bacon, Avocado and Tomatoes recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen
Fresh corn and tomatoes are tossed together with bacon and guacamole to make this irresistible dip. I made this for a family movie night and the three avocado lovers in my family managed to eat almost the whole batch. This is an awesome appetizer for any summer party; scoop it up with chips or eat it off the spoon. However you serve it, it's going to disappear fast.

You know those recipes that you want to make as soon as you see them? My friend Sandy shared this recipe on Facebook a few days ago and as soon as I saw it, I crossed the corn dish I had planned to make off of my menu and wrote this one in it's place. I'm glad I did, because I couldn't get enough of this dip.

I love everything about fresh corn, I've been know to eat it straight off the cob, roasted or grilled, skillet fried, sautéed or stir fried. I'll take corn just about any way you might think to serve it and I'm thrilled to have a new corn recipe in my hands for the summer.

COOK'S NOTE: Feel free to make this with a couple of fresh avocados (instead of guacamole), just season to taste with salt, pepper, and lime. I had guacamole in the refrigerator, so I chose to use what I already had on hand. Sandy's original recipe called for a good bit more cilantro and I reduced that to suit my family's tastes. Kick up the cilantro, if that is more your style.

  4. I can't tell you how much I enjoy your blog. I loved the knife post and watched the whole thing. HOWVER, I don't understand why you don't have "PIN" buttons attached to your post. I especially love pinning recipes and using the pin button on a blog makes it sooooo much easier. My computer is very old and the "pin" on the bar at the top doesn't always work.. Please consider.

  5. OK, it's time to EAT CROW. I just realized I have been looking in the wrong spot for the pin button. I couldn't understand why you wouldn't have one being as large as you are. So glad to be able to Pin your recipes. My apologies
