Ingredients
  

  • 6 slices thick-cut bacon
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 1/2 onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 T. worcestershire
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. pepper
  • 24 cherry tomatoes
  • 4 oz. monterey jack
  • 1/4 cup guacamole
  • 2 jalapeños (optional)
  • 24 toothpicks

Chipotle Lime Dipping Sauce

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 chipotle peppers in adobo minced
  • 1 T. lime juice
  • 1/2 t. garlic powder
  • 1/4 t. salt

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Set a wire rack in a foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Lay bacon slices on the rack.
  • Bake bacon at 400° for 10-12 minutes, until edges are barely crisp; chewy centers will be easier to skewer. Leave oven at 400°.
  • While bacon is baking, heat oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Saute onion and garlic until onion is translucent, then transfer to a mixing bowl.
  • Add beef, worcestershire, salt, & pepper to the onions and mix well.
  • Remove the rack of bacon from the foil-lined baking sheet. Roll beef into 24 small meatballs and set on the baking sheet.
  • Bake meatballs at 400° for 10-12 minutes, until browned.
  • While meatballs are baking, slice cherry tomatoes in half widthwise. Slice each bacon strip into 4 pieces and scoop a teaspoon of guacamole onto each piece. Cut monterey jack into 8 slices, then cut each slice into 3 squares. If using jalapeños, cut thinly into 24 slices.
  • Skewer one cherry tomato half, guacamole-topped bacon slice, jalapeño slice, cheese slice, meatball, and finish with another cherry tomato half. Repeat for all 24 skewers.
  • Whisk together all sauce ingredients or pulse in a food processor.
  • Serve skewers warm with chipotle dipping sauce.
