Either you like bacon
or you are wrong.

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
Kosher salt
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Cholula hot sauce
8, 6-inch flour tortillas
Romaine lettuce leaves, torn into bite size pieces


    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise and hot sauce.
    4. 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!
