8 servings


  • 1 (7 ounce) package elbow macaroni

  • 1 pound bacon, diced

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 large avocado, diced

  • ½ cup mayonnaise

  • ½ cup creamy salad dressing (such as Miracle Whip®)

  • cup tomato-based chile sauce

  • ¼ cup lemon juice

  • 2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules

  • 2 teaspoons white sugar

  • 1 large tomato - cored, seeded, and diced

  • ½ cup sliced green onion tops

  • 6 cups shredded lettuce


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.

  2. Fry bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until browned and crisp, about 7 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Refrigerate when cool.

  3. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons lemon juice over the diced avocado.

  4. Combine mayonnaise, creamy dressing, chile sauce, 1/4 cup lemon juice, chicken bouillon, and sugar. Stir in the cooked macaroni, avocado, tomato, and green onions. Cover tightly and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 6 hours. Mix in lettuce and the reserved bacon just before serving.
