1 pound thick cut bacon (applewood smoked)
1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 small jalapeño, seeded and chopped
2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
Juice of 1 lime
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Cholula hot sauce
8, 6-inch flour tortillas
Romaine lettuce leaves, torn into bite size pieces
- Heat oven to 400º. Lay bacon in an even layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until browned and crisp, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and let cool.
- While bacon is cooking, toss together tomatoes, jalapeño, cilantro, 1 tablespoon lime juice and a large pinch of salt in a medium bowl. Taste and add more lime juice and salt, if needed.
- In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise and hot sauce.
- Serve, letting people make their own tacos by layering bacon, salsa, lettuce and spicy mayonnaise on tortillas. Top with more hot sauce, if desired.
Pairing: Ice cold cerveza!
