Buffalo Guacamole | Perfect as an Appetizer

Speaking of avocados, I made you something evil with them. And delicious. And easy. And creamy. And garlicky. And smokey. Because the super bowl is just around the corner…or so I hear. And because I’m a guacamole lover, not a hater. This recipe is my go-to guacamole recipe but on crack.

I added bacon, blue cheese, and hot sauce to this version and created something ri-donk-ulous. People *will* go crazy for this guac because it’s different than regular guacamole but just as addicting.

Main Ingredients Needed

Next time you’re at the store looking for guac ingredients look for these! Here’s what you need to make Buffalo Guacamole:

  • Bacon – everything is always better with bacon. Instead of cooking strips and crumbling you could always use store-bought Bacon Bits.
  • Avocados – make sure they are ripe, otherwise, they won’t mash very well.
  • Lime Juice – a classic tart addition to guacamole.
  • Garlic – for flavor! Grated so no one gets a huge bite of garlic.
  • Salt + Pepper – season to taste.
  • Cilantro – used as a garnish and is totally optional if you hate the taste.
  • Blue Cheese – you could also use feta or goat cheese if you don’t like blue cheese.
  • Hot Sauce – I used Frank’s Red Hot sauce, but you could use whatever hot sauce you have and/or like best.

Love Buffalo flavor? Me too, I actually craved it when I was pregnant with my second. So here are a couple more recipes you should definitely try: Buffalo Chicken Fries, Buffalo Deviled Eggs, Buffalo Chicken Pasta, and Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese.

Perfect for big fatty Super Bowl parties, afternoon snacks, or holidays. Once my Buffalo Guacamole was all whipped up, I spooned it into a serving bowl and topped it with more blue cheese and hot sauce. So so good! And it looks pretty fancy all dolled up if I do say so myself.

And then people will dig in and you’ll have to make another double batch.

    Holy Moly! So many delicious things going on here… I’m in love. It’s like… buffalo cobb salad dip…. all my favorite things <3

  2. Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie

    I bet this is insanely awesome! Would be good with feta or gorgonzola too if making for a blue-cheese-hating crowd

  3. Mary @ The Kitchen Paper

    This must be your pregnant-lady-genius coming out… because this looks AMAZING. I buy tons of avocados at costco also: I WILL be making this!

  4. Heidi

    Oh good. You mean I’m not the only one who craves BK Junior Whoppers? Except… I’m not pregnant. But they’re SO DANG GOOD! Thanks for this recipe too. My girls dig avocados, and we’ll have to try this out!
    Cheers girl!

  5. Alaina @ Fabtastic Eats

    Holy guacamole! This is insane! ALL of my favorite things combined into one dish! I have a feeling Im going to go crazy over this…and quite possibly never revert back to plain ol’ guac. Yous so smaaat!

  6. Julia

    This is such an interesting combination–I would never have thought to put them together–but they sound pretty awesome together. What a great recipe!

  7. Katie @ Blonde Ambition

    I…just…. I can’t even. If it ensures that masterpieces like this would be coming out of your kitchen, can you just always be pregnant? (I kid……..kinda)

  9. Stephanie @ Macaroni and Cheesecake

    Oh this sounds wonderful! I love the twist on regular guac! And I’m with you on the butter lettuce, love it!

  10. Debbi

    This looks absolutely amazing! Great combination of flavors! I have always been a lover of the avocado…I even made up a song about them in my teens. I was a lonely child 🙂 I still hum the song to myself whenever I eat them, which is not often since I somehow became allergic to anything with a stone/pit in it when I turned 30….the allergist says it was a hormonal thing. Such a cruel twist of fate, a lifetime of all my favorite fruits denied just when I was ready to begin my culinary adventures. Boo! I am able to eat them in very small amounts and slowly….I just need to watch for allergy symptoms. I will make this for the super bowl party, and live vicariously through others!

    I made this for my book club group. I should have doubled it because it went in about 15 minutes. Everyone wanted the recipe.
    Soooo good.

    This looks yummy, but I have one word of caution for you. This is listed on your site under the Gluten Free section, but blue cheese (including gorgonzola) is not actually gluten free because the bacteria cultures that produce the blue veins in it are actually started and feed with flour and bread. It’s advised by various Celiac and Gluten Intolerance groups that people who need to be gluten free not eat it. That said, it those folks could easily substitute another cheese, like feta, and enjoy this!
