Bacon Wrapped Guacamole Poppers with Cream Cheese, Lime, and Avocado

Heading out to a Superbowl party and need a app to pass? There have been a lot of posts on bacon-wrapped peppers, but these are filled with cream cheese. Easy enough to prepare  these are sure be a hit! FYI > Be sure to pre-cook the bacon, then wrap everything before cooking a few more minutes. Otherwise you’ll have a melted cheesy mess on your hands. Cheers.
