You had me at Bacon Wrapped!

I guess I never realized how much I talk about bacon, as the trend of bacon themed photos tagging me on Facebook and bacon themed gifts just keeps happening. I am going to give up trying to escape my reputation as a bacon lover and just embrace it. Meat is not even something that I can eat a ton of at once since I find it fills me up very quickly. I tried to become a vegetarian once when I was in high school, but I worked in the mall and two of my favorite items were the New York Fries “The Works” which was mostly delicious because of the bacon bits on it, and the Teen Burger at A&W, because of the bacon. I lasted about a week before A&W and New York Fries won the battle. I think they had an unfair bacon advantage!

Another thing I love is guacamole, so you can image my pleasure when I was living in Colombia to discover an amazing hamburger place called El Corral, that had a Mexican Burger! It is a burger with guacamole, and refried beans! Is it such a delicious beast and the meat they use is so good it is the best burger I have ever had in my life. If you ever go to Colombia you must try Corral’s Hamburgesa Mexicana! The only thing it is missing is bacon.

I have decided that the combination of guacamole and bacon needs to be explored. Someone seems to have read my mind and answered my prayers. My friend Melanie was just in Mexico over Christmas and came across something that made her think of me. I am not quite sure how she knew of my love for bacon, but this photo was one of the best shots I have seen in a long time.

Maybe Japadog needs some competition in the way of a Mexidog stand?

Everything is better when it is wrapped in bacon. The only scallops or water chestnuts I eat are wrapped in bacon. I love sirloin more when it is bacon wrapped. Next on my list: hot dogs!
