Super Bowl snack idea: Loaded guacamole with crumbled bacon and cheese

Most guacamole recipes don’t have bacon crumbled on top, but Gaby Dalkin makes a pretty strong case for why they should. Dalkin, the author behind the upcoming cookbook “What’s Gaby Cooking: Everyday California Food,” is somewhat of an expert when it comes to dips and snacks — so of course she's got a recipe in her playbook for loaded guacamole with crumbled bacon and cotija cheese.Try whipping up a bowl at this Sunday's Super Bowl party, then go ahead and sprinkle some extra bacon and cheese on everything else you plan on eating. (Couldn't hurt, right?)
