Bacon Burrito you say?

I enjoy a good burrito, but lets face it, it’s not really something you would associate with bacon. Well those crazy kids over at Taco Bell have limited time snack for us baconistas, the Bacon Cheesy Potato Burrito. I guess they are not content with Wendy’s getting all the bacon mentions online.
Now I could go all bacon snob here and say how the bacon is of an inferior quality compared to good bacon. But its TACO BELL!!!… the best part of taco bell is they have Mountain Dew on tap and the drive thru is open late. No place for snobbery.
Of course the product doesn’t match the picture, that’s a given. For a fast food burrito it wasn’t bad, every bite had enough bacony flavor that I did not feel ripped off. It wasn’t over powered by sauce or other parts of the burrito. Not sure it is worth $3 but if I have the need for the taste of bacon wrapped in a soft flour tortilla, I would get this again.

2985. BACON, EGG and AVOCADO BREAKFAST BURRITO

3 slices bacon
2 eggs
1 tablespoon water
3 tablespoons salsa verde (homemade or store-bought)
2 tablespoons cheddar or monterey jack cheese, grated
1/4 avocado, diced
2 taco sized flour tortillas

Chop the bacon into bite sized pieces and cook in a small non-stick skillet over medium heat until crisp. Set aside the bacon on a paper towel lined plate to drain.

Drain the grease from the skillet and wipe down with a paper towel.

In a small bowl, stir together the eggs and water with a fork until well combined.

Scramble the eggs in the skillet over low heat until almost set. Add the salsa verde to the eggs and continue cooking until the eggs are fully cooked and the salsa is heated through.

Divide the eggs between the two tortillas. Top each tortilla with the cheese, bacon, and avocado.
Roll it into a burrito (fold the half closest to you over the filling and smoosh it into the filling a bit, bring both ends toward the middle and roll to close).
