The real winner.

As far as Southern holidays are concerned, Super Bowl Sunday is right up there with Christmas and Thanksgiving. Of course, folks below the Mason-Dixon wouldn't dare miss an opportunity to gather with friends, enjoy some delicious food, and watch the big game on the big screen. This is no ordinary football match; party planning begins weeks in advance of the event, and the most important celebratory element is surely an assortment of delectable food. You'll be hard-pressed to find a Southern Super Bowl party without chicken wings, pull-apart bread, and too many dips to count adorning the kitchen table.

However, your game day festivities will never reach its full potential if the unbelievably tasty Bacon-Pimiento Guacamole doesn't make an appearance. Guacamole is no doubt a Super Bowl staple, but this recipe livens up the classic dish with a few extra ingredients – we bet you never make the original dip again. It's incredibly easy to put together, and the appetizer will excite your taste buds with an explosion of flavor. Fresh avocados, diced pimientos, red onion, and crumbled bacon slices join forces to create one irresistible Super Bowl favorite. You don't want to miss it – trust us.

We can all agree that bacon instantly upgrades any dish. It can be spotted as a cocktail garnish, crumbled over milkshakes and doughnuts, or layered on a gourmet sandwich. While adding fried bacon to a heaping helping of eggs and waffles will always be a favorite, it certainly adds a wonderfully smoky, salty flavor to this party dip. With the constant availability of appetizing avocadoes, guacamole is a go-to party food for outdoor celebrations, fire pit events, or game-day gatherings around the big-screen. As Super Bowl Sunday is quickly approaching, be sure to give the Bacon-Pimiento Guacamole try.
