Editors Note: "Breaking Bad" may have finally wrapped, but we know there's some of you out there still catching up on past seasons, waiting to watch the final episode, and planning to re-watch the whole series. Enjoy these character-inspired dishes by Amy Deline at The Gourmand Mom.

Have we got any "Breaking Bad" fans out there?

I recently read some comment that watched in reverse, AMC’s "Breaking Bad" tells the inspiring story of drug lord who cleans up his act, beats cancer, reunites his family, and becomes a school teacher. Sounds like a Lifetime movie. In actuality, for the past five seasons, we’ve watched the tale of a seemingly normal man’s struggle with cancer and providing for his family crumble into the most unimaginable chaos, up to the point where last episode left off, with a suggestion that perhaps there’s nothing left of that kind, normal man. The show is widely considered one of television’s best dramas and for good reason. I’m approaching the series finale with mix of eager anticipation and deep sadness for its ending.

In honor of its finale, the good folks at Cinema Blend asked me to put together a little "Breaking Bad" themed dinner party menu. Though not in any way a show about food, "Breaking Bad" gives us no shortage for dinner party inspiration. Many of the shows pivotal confrontations occur over some of the world’s most awkward meals. The following menu, designed with a New Mexican flare for the show’s setting, should give you a few good ideas for hosting your own Breaking Bad-themed dinner party.

Heisenberg’s Tableside Guacamole

During the past season, Walt, Skyler, Hank, and Marie met for the world’s most awkward double date at a Mexican restaurant. At the height of the tension, an upbeat waiter arrives, eagerly pushing the joint’s signature table-side guacamole. (You can see the clip here.)
