Serving Suggestions

The smoky flavor of bacon combined with the spicy flavor of chipotle chilies make this a side dish that demands second helpings. Serve with Margarita Pork Roast.

About the Cut: Bacon

The cut used to make bacon comes from the side - or belly - of the pig. When it is cured and smoked, it becomes bacon. An abundance of fat gives bacon its sweet flavor and tender crispiness.
