Ingredients

For Guacamole

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 small tomato chopped
  • 4 green onions chopped
  • juice from half a lime
  • salt and pepper to taste

For Mexican BLT

  • 2 small white baguettes mine were about a foot long
  • 6 slices chicken bacon cut in small pieces
  • 8 slices pancetta medium slices, if thin slices use more
  • 4 radishes sliced
  • 2 cups chopped lettuce
  • 2 to matoes chopped
  • 4 green onions chopped
  • 1 lime
  • freshly ground pepper

Instructions

  • Turn your broiler on high. Cut baguettes in half lengthwise, but do not cut all the way through. Split open and place on a baking sheet. Place the baking sheet under the broiler and toast the baguettes for about 1 min or until lightly toasted.
  • In a small bowl mash the avocado. Add tomatoes, green onions, and the lime juice and mix well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Cut the pancetta in small pieces and fry it in a non stick pan, no additional oil is necessary, just until lightly browned. Remove from pan and add the chicken bacon and fry until lightly browned.
  • To assemble the sandwiches, spread half of the guacamole onto each baguette. Next layer with half of the lettuce on each, chicken bacon, tomatoes, radishes, green onions, half the pancetta and drizzle with lime juice.
  • If there are any veggies left over, make a small salad and drizzle with a bit of olive oil and lime juice.
