This week I wanted to share another comforting party snack you can enjoy with your friends at weekend gatherings and game days, that is gluten free, low carb, and paleo.

Bacon Wrapped Avocado slices might be the easiest homemade party snack ever. With only 2 main ingredients, and a little bit of seasoning, you can pop them in the oven in minutes. Then enjoy tantalizing crispy bacon pockets filled with soft creamy avocado.

The first time I made Bacon Wrapped Avocado, I had a group of tweens at my house. They came sneaking into the kitchen after the scent of bacon started wafting from the oven. Even the pickiest child in the room, loved the Bacon Wrapped Avocado and snuck a few extra wedges before leaving the house, if that tells you anything.

I knew I had a winner on my hands.

Bacon Wrapped Avocado might not be a snack you can get away with eating all day long, seven days a week. Yet when you are trying hard to keep the carbs on the down-low, and need something to satisfy junk food cravings, this is the dish to go with. Rich, crispy, and packed with flavor.

Plus you can find everything you need at ALDI!

Sprinkle the wedges with a little smoky chile powder and cumin, and even a little salt. Don’t go overboard on the salt, because bacon is already salty.

Ingredients

  • 2 large firm avocados, Pick two that are almost ripe, but not quite.
  • 8 thick-cut strips bacon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ancho chile powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place a piece of parchment paper on a large rimmed baking sheet and set aside.
  2. Stretch the bacon to elongate the strips. Then cut them in half to create 16 shorter strips. Cut both avocados into 8 wedges each. Gently remove the peel.
  3. Wrap a piece of bacon around each avocado wedge, twice. Make sure you start wrapping on the under side, then end on the under side. Lay the avocado wedges on the baking sheet with the bacon ends tucked underneath.
  4. Sprinkle the wedges lightly with ancho chile powder, cumin, and salt to taste. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the bacon is red and crisp. Cool on a paper towel lined plate to drain off the excess fat. Serve warm or at room temperature. Pair with Folded Mountain Pale Ale.
