BLT Tacos with Chipotle Mayo

by Alli

Bacon, shredded lettuce, and chopped tomatoes are layered in warm flour tortillas. Drizzle with Chipotle Mayo and top with chopped cilantro and avocado. BLT Tacos are easy to make and so, so good. 

I always look forward to summer! It’s not just because summer is my favorite season, but it’s also fresh tomato season. 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.

Best Way To Cook Bacon

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 flour tortillas 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.

I always heat mine in the microwave. Layer between paper towels and heat for 30 seconds to a minute. 

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.
