Guacamole with Bacon by cucinagirl

2 ripe avocados, halved, peeled, pitted, and mashed 
1 tablespoon minced onion 
1-2 cloves of garlic (or garlic powder, to taste) 
¼ tsp chili powder 
¼ tsp salt 
dash (freshly ground) pepper 
1/3 cup mayonnaise (optional)* 
6 slices of bacon, cooked crisp 
1 tomato, diced (optional)**

Combine all ingredients and  (except mayo).

Chill in small container, sealed on top with mayonnaise (if using, plastic wrap if not) to prevent darkening. 

Stir in mayonnaise, if using, and serve with tortilla chips.

*I prefer to make this recipe without the mayonnaise, but it does prevent the guacamole from darkening better than plastic wrap alone.

**Brian prefers this recipe without the tomato, claiming that it is too bright a flavor with the rest of the ingredients.  I think that the tomatoes are a nice compliment, but I can certainly see his point.
