BLT Tacos with Chipotle Mayo

I always look forward to summer! It’s not just because summer is my favorite season, but mid-June is when my dad’s tomatoes start to ripen. There’s nothing quite like a freshly picked tomato and that first BLT of the season. I kicked things up a notch or two when I created BLT Tacos with Chipotle Mayo.

I kicked it up a notch when I took BLT's, ditched the bread and added a little spice. BLT Tacos with Chipotle Mayo are a family favorite at my house.

This will probably be the easiest recipe you’ll make during the summer. BLT Tacos with Chipotle Mayo are delicious for lunch, taco night or a midnight snack. I’m so glad I thought this one up.

You won’t need very many ingredients when you make BLT Tacos. Bacon, shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes are layered in a soft taco. Drizzle with Chipotle Mayo.  Top with chopped cilantro and avocado. Yum!

Helpful Hint: I always cook my bacon in the oven. There’s no shrinkage, no splattering and no mess.

Preheat the oven to 400º and line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (or tin foil as I call it). Place bacon in a single layer and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the bacon is golden brown. Use tongs to transfer the bacon to a paper-towel lined plate. That’s it – perfect bacon – every single time.

Heat the tacos in a skillet or wrap and heat in the microwave. Don’t overdo the heating or your tacos will be brittle instead of soft and pliable. It only takes a few seconds.

For each taco, add shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and bacon. Drizzle with the chipotle mayo and top with chopped cilantro and avocado. Dinner (or lunch) is served.
