Easy guacamole bacon appetizers for a party, or just for snacking on. Low carb and Whole30.


With the big game coming up we were thinking about something we could bring to our friends’ big watch party. With lots of party goers watching in multiple rooms we knew there would be lots of chips and dip and great finger foods for snacking and mingling. We decided that we would combine the dip and finger food with our Sweet Potato Guacamole Bacon Bites! This post contains sponsored content brought to you by Casabella and Melissa’s Produce.

Guacamole is a Great Party Dip

One of our go to dips for big gatherings is guacamole! It’s cool, creamy and deliciously fatty and the perfect partner to salty chips and a perfect addition to one of our favorite foods, tacos! When the fine folks at Melissa’s Produce. and Casabella’s Guac-Lock asked us to come up with a recipe to celebrate guacamole and check out the Guac-Lock we saw the perfect opportunity to make a great party food, plus review a cool new product.

While guacamole is a great party dip, it has one big drawback, you really can’t make it ahead of time. It tends to oxidize and turn brown and totally unappetizing looking! When you are somewhat organized about food like we are, especially when we love to make things look fantastic, this is where the Guac-Lock comes in!

What about the Guac-Lock?

The Guac-Lock is a new product that is perfect for ambitious party planners like us to make their dips ahead of time. It’s great to not worry that the look and flavor of their creations will fade over time. The Guac-Lock has an innovative elevator mechanism and seal system that allows you to squeeze out any excess air, preventing the guacamole from oxidizing and discoloring.

As a bonus, the container is shatterproof and with a locking seal, perfect for taking along to a party.

We put our Guac-Lock to the test for this recipe, as we started out to make this recipe and shoot the pictures. Ironically we got interrupted by life and we found ourselves shooting our Sweet Potato Guacamole Bacon appetizers a full 24 hours after we had made our guacamole! As you can see, our guacamole came out looking fresh with no hints of oxidation!


We were able to shoot pics, reseal the guacamole and serve the extra Sweet Potato Guacamole Bacon appetizers for dinner!

So, we started out with some great avocados from Melissa’s Produce, providers of great fresh produce to make our guacamole. We mashed up the fresh avacado using Casabella’s 4 ‘n 1 Avocado Tool and then mixed in some great fresh tomatoes, diced Melissa’s pearl onions, fresh crushed garlic and fresh squeezed lime juice. We like a slightly chunky guacamole, which lets you get some of that smooth rich avocado!

Next we sliced up a sweet potato into thin rounds, seasoned them with salt and pepper and olive oil, then baked them to a golden toasty crispness. The roasting brings out the natural sweetness of the sweet potato while also crisping the sweet potato round into a crunchy bite perfect for holding our guacamole.

What Toppings Did We use?

We topped the Sweet Potato Guacamole Bacon Bites with some sauteed sweet red onions and crispy, salty diced bacon. Adding a hint of sweet and salt, the onion and bacon add a rich savory note that compliments the cool creaminess of the guacamole.


A topping of some chipotle hot sauce finishes the bites with a nice spicy hint of smoky sweet heat!
