8 ea. dried guajillo chiles, stemmed, seeded, and cut into thin rings (scissors)
6 ea. thick-cut bacon slices, cooked until brown and crisp, then chopped
1/4 c. feta cheese, crumbled, divided
3 ea. Avocados From Mexico, diced
1 ea. large red onion
1/4 c. silver tequila
4 T. olive oil
2 T. freshly squeezed lime juice
1 t. kosher or coarse sea salt, divided, or more to taste
Tortilla chips to taste
In a large sauté pan, heat oil over low to medium-low heat. Add onion, chiles, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally until slightly caramelized.
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.
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.
Scrape the avocado mix into a serving bowl, top with guajillo mixture, chopped bacon and remaining feta cheese and serve with tortilla chips.
