Ingredients

  • 3 bacon slices
  • 3 8-inch flour tortillas
  • 3 Tablespoons prepared guacamole
  • 1 Cup shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 4 Ounces roast turkey, sliced
  • 3 slices Pepper Jack cheese
  • 3 slices tomato
  • 2 Tablespoons prepared salsa
  • 1 Tablespoon sour cream

Directions

Preheat broiler to high. Cook bacon in a skillet until crisp. Transfer bacon to a paper-towel lined plate; reserve drippings. Brush both sides of tortillas with drippings, transfer to a baking sheet, and broil until beginning to brown 2-3 minutes. Flip and broil until crisp, 1-2 minutes.

To assemble, spread guacamole on 2 tortillas and top both with lettuce.  Place turkey and cheese on one of these tortillas, then stack the other one on top of the cheese, lettuce side up. Layer bacon and tomato on lettuce; top with salsa, sour cream and the remaining plain tortilla. Cut sandwich in to 4 or 8 wedges.

Mexican Shopping Tip

How hot is that chile pepper? Fresh peppers get hotter as they age; they will achieve a more reddish hue and sometimes develop streaks in the skin.

Mexican Cooking Tip

There are 60 varieties of chile peppers, many of which are used in Mexican cooking. Handle them with care. When handling the spicier kinds, gloves are recommended. Always wash your hands with soap and warm water before touching your eyes.

Mexican Wine Pairing

Tempranillo or other light Spanish red wine types with paella, even seafood paella. Various other wines depending on what rice is cooked with; see Pasta Recipes and other individual food types.
