Ingredients

  • 10 strips of bacon diced
  • 1 8 oz. package cream cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar jack cheese
  • 1 jalapeño seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup scallions sliced
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh cilantro finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 6 6 inch flour tortillas

Instructions

  • In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crisp. Remove to paper towel lined plate. Reserve drippings.
  • In a large bowl, combine bacon, cream cheese, cheddar jack cheese, jalapeno, scallions, cilantro, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, cayenne, salt and pepper until well blended.
  • Spread an even amount (about 1/4 cup) on one side of each tortilla (as shown).

Slice each tortilla in half. Serve with salsa for dipping.
