Recipe Source: Modified recipe from The Sweet Potato Queens’ Big-Ass Cookbook and Financial Planner, by Jill Conner Browne, with tips from Marie in Ocala, FL

Ingredients:

1 pound bacon (cut into half or quarter slices if preferred)
3 pounds brown sugar
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 cup chopped pecans (chopped VERY fine, or they won’t stick to the bacon!)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 F. Roll each slice in a mixture of sugar, chili powder and pecans. Lay each slice in a broiler pan, lined with heavy duty foil and bake for 30 minutes. Bacon will be limp when done, and will stiffen with cooling.

Suggestions:

If you’re feeling really adventurous marinade the bacon in Guinness for about an hour prior to preparation. Or, add some cayenne pepper to spice things up!
