Holy Guacamole Batman! This guacamole bacon burger dip recipe will knock you out! It’s got seven flavorful layers of ground beef, guacamole, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, onions and bacon. It’s also easy to make it dairy free for those of us who (sadly) have to stay away from cheese. It’s the perfect football snack recipe for any game day. You can make it the night before, or right before the big game. Check it out!
As you can see, we’re a family of Seahawks fans. How can we not be with this cutie?
He has a wonderful variety of catch phrases about the Seahawks that he’s been saying since before he turned two. My personal favorite is “C’mon Boys!”. When he was 18 months, everywhere he saw the Seahawks logo he would shout, “Go Hawks!”. As you can imagine, we got a lot of smiles and cheers in return.
But back to the guacamole bacon burger dip. Because that’s what you’re really here for right?
GUACAMOLE BACON BURGER DIP
Well I love guacamole bacon burgers as much as I love the Seahawks (maybe even more, but don’t tell my son). Whenever I go to a burger restaurant, that’s the first thing I look for. Then I look at everything else, thinking I’ll try something new. But I always come back to my first burger love.
There’s just something about the creamy guacamole, salty crispy bacon, and a beefy patty topped with slices of cheddar, tomato, onion, and a sprinkling of lettuce. It’s the perfect combination of flavors and textures! Okay, perhaps I’ve thought about this a little too much.
But all that burger dreaming came to fruition when my friends at Sabra asked us to team up with them this month. As soon as they contacted me I told my husband, “I’m going to do something amazing with their guacamole!”
I thought through a few ways of deconstructing a guacamole bacon burger, and in the end, decided a big plate of guacamole bacon burger dip was the perfect option. (But I haven’t given up on the soup idea!)
Our family really loves Sabra. We go through a giant tub of their hummus each week! We also love using their guacamole when we need a recipe shortcut. It’s thick and creamy, and the taste of avocados isn’t overpowered by the other ingredients.
Right now, Sabra has a sweet Buy, Snap, Score promotion going. If you’re buying some hummus, guacamole, or chip dip for Game Day (who isn’t?), make sure it’s Sabra’s and grab a couple bags of Stacy’s chips with it. You can use your phone to upload your receipt before February 15, 2016 and they’ll send you a $5 gift card. SCORE! You can get more details at DipZone.com.
Now for the guacamole bacon burger dip recipe, I used a really lean ground beef from our whole cow that we buy each year. Grass fed beef is so packed with flavor, I just add little salt and pepper. If you’re using beef from the grocery store, you may want to add a little garlic and onion powder as well.
But skip the taco seasoning. You don’t want this to taste like that OTHER 7 layer dip recipe.
If you’re looking for a dairy free seven layer dip recipe, try this guacamole bacon burger dip without the cheese. It’s so amazing, you won’t even notice it’s missing the dairy!
And it’s SO pretty! I kind of hated eating these each time I tested the recipe. Until I started digging in, then I may have eaten enough guacamole bacon burger dip for an entire football team!
We hope you love this guacamole bacon burger dip recipe as much as we do. Even if you’re not rooting for our boys in blue, if you love guacamole and bacon, we’ll be okay.
THANKS FOR SUPPORTING EATING RICHLY EVEN WHEN YOU’RE BROKE
If you cook your bacon in the oven you can save on cooking time by having it going at the same time as your beef. I love how these racks stack for baking, but they’re also great for cooking bacon because they are easier to clean than the ones with squares. By clicking one of these links before making a purchase on Amazon, we get a small percentage of your purchase, without it costing you anything extra! Thanks for helping to support our family business.

- Cook the ground beef in a large skillet until browned, seasoning with salt and pepper. I usually add a little of each, cook it, then taste to see if it needs a little more.
- Cook the bacon until crispy (I actually like to cook bacon in the oven so it can cook while you cook the beef) then blot with paper towels.
- You can layer while the beef and bacon are still hot, or let them cool in the fridge. We prefer ours cooled.
- Spread the beef out on a large platter.
- Use a spoon to spread Sabra guacamole on top of the beef. I used one package in the photos and videos, but Eric likes two packages for a creamier dip.
- Sprinkle the grated cheese all over the guacamole, then the lettuce, tomatoes, and onion.
- Chop the bacon and sprinkle it all over the dip.
- If preparing a day ahead, wrap the platter tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
