BLT Tacos with Chipotle Mayo

by Alli

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.

You cannot go wrong with bacon. This is a great twist on a BLT. I love the addition of avocado. We will have to give these a try.
