Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large red onion halved and thinly sliced
  • 8 dried guajillo chiles stemmed seeded and cut into thin rings (with scissors)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher or coarse sea salt divided or more to taste
  • 1/4 cup silver tequila
  • 3 ripe Avocados From Mexico halved, pitted and diced

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a large sauté pan over low to medium-low heat. Add onion, chiles and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until slightly caramelized.
  2. Pour in the tequila and immediately tilt pan towards burner’s flames to ignite the mixture, which will last for a few seconds. Cook for another minute to allow the alcohol from the tequila to evaporate. Remove from the heat and reserve.
  3. In a mixing bowl, mash the avocados along with the lime juice and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Incorporate half of the crumbled feta cheese, mix well and taste for salt.
  4. Scrape the avocado mix into a serving bowl, top with guajillo mixture, chopped bacon, remaining feta cheese and serve along with tortilla chips.
