Roasted Corn and Bacon Guacamole

This is an easy and delicious dip and great for parties.  I got the idea from Chili's, but changed it a little by adding bacon.

2 Hass avocados
2 slices of bacon, sliced
1 cup corn kernels
1 garlic clove, chopped finely
2 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped
juice from 1 lime
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tablespoon hot sauce (optional)
Tortilla chips for dipping

Heat a small saute pan and add the bacon.  Cook the bacon until it begins to turn brown.  Then add the corn kernels and the garlic clove that has been chopped finely.  Saute these together until the corn begins to turn brown.  This will take about 5 minutes.  Add the cayenne pepper and continue to cook for 1-2 minutes. 

While that is sauteing, squeeze the lemon juice into the bottom of a medium bowl.  Take the skins off of the avocados and remove the pit and put into the bowl.  Add the hot sauce and the salt.  Mash everything together untilt the avocado is smooth and creamy. 

Stir in the red onion and the corn mixture.  Stir these together until combined.  Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!
