Bacon Chipotle Guacamole

This is a delicious guacamole. Anything with bacon HAS to be good. We have made this 2 times and will make it many more, I am sure.
Bacon-Chipotle Guacamolebarely adapted from Fiesta at Rick's, by Rick Bayless http://www.pink-parsley.com/
makes about 3 cups
4 strips of bacon, preferably thick-cut, applewood-smoked bacon
3 ripe avocados (about 1 1/4 lbs)
1/3 cup finely chopped white onion
3 canned chipotles in adobo - seeds removed optional - finely minced
1 tomato, cored, seeded, and finely chopped
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced
juice of 1 lime
kosher salt to taste

Chop the bacon into 1/2-inch pieces and cook in a large skillet until browned and crispy. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
Meanwhile, cut each avocado in half, remove the seed, and scrape out the flesh from the peel. Add it to a medium mixing bowl and mash with a fork into a coarse puree.
Add the onion to a small strainer and briefly rinse under cold water (this helps tame the "bite" of raw onion). Shake off the excess water and transfer to the bowl with the avocados. Add the bacon, chipotle chiles, tomato, cilantro, garlic, and lime juice. Mix well, then season to taste with salt.

Serve immediately.
