Bacon Tacos

Move over BLT...these bacon tacos are even better than you are!

Move over Bacon, Lettuce, & Tomato Sandwiches…there is a new kids on the block!  This is not a taco shell made out of bacon, but the most unbelievable taco you’ve ever had.  This taco is filled with hot, crunchy, salty bacon.

A couple months ago Hubbyman and I went to a huge food truck festival and one of the trucks served up a version of these bacon tacos.  Hubbyman took one bite and proclaimed that I needed to make these at home in the next week.

So, our fun food truck outing turned into me dissecting the bacon tacos that he was swooning over.  I couldn’t eat the ones served, but it didn’t take much to figure out how to make them so everyone in the family could enjoy them.  And since I’m a good wife {well..I was on this day} I served these bacon tacos for lunch the following Saturday.

Personally, these tacos would make a great breakfast, lunch, or supper. In fact, we may or may not have eaten these for all three meals in one day.  I’m just sayin’…bacon is amazing!  I would say it was the perfect food but it would only reach perfection status if had zero calories.  And as of now, I have not found any bacon with zero calories!

The bacon is hot and crispy.  The coleslaw is cold and creamy.  The salsa is crunchy and spicy.  Could there be a better taco?  I really don’t think so!
