"These were a big hit with the whole family! I put all of the toppings on a plate and let my kids add them on their own. You really can't go wrong with avocado and bacon :)"

"I used premade guacamole and skipped the tomatoes, preferring to add some Mexican cheese and a few jalapenos to the adults' plates. I love the ease of this meal - ready in no time with a different flavor profile than the usual ketchup or mustard. Also very customizable. My daughter wouldn't eat the guacamole or the onion but piled on the bacon and cheese instead. Very easy but something a little outside the norm."
