    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
    2. 2
      Mix the chili powder and brown sugar in a shallow bowl.
    3. 3
      Fit a sheet of parchment paper onto a jelly-roll pan.
    4. 4
      Bury each slice of bacon in the chili and sugar mixture; rub both sides to assure the mixture adheres.
    5. 5
      Lay the bacon strips on the prepared pan.
    6. 6
      The bacon strips may be left flat or twisted two or three times by holding each end to make a candied "stick".
    7. 7
      Bake for 30 minutes without turning.
    8. 8
      Always transfer candied bacon using tongs; the hot sugar can easily burn your fingers.

      Very similar to my Candied Bacon, except mine uses cumin instead of chili powder. :) I cooked mine in a rack on top of a broiler pan so the bacon wouldn't soak up all that fat. Otherwise, I made it as posted. I twisted some and left some flat. The twisted ones took a bit longer to cook. This was delicious! Thanks for sharing.

      We just loved this bacon; sweet and a little spicy at the end. I used my Sil-Pat mat, to make for an easier clean-up. This would be awesome crumbled over a salad, but it is great on it's own. I did forget to twist them, but will try to remember next time. Like DH said when tasting it, "How could you make it any better?" I agree! Thanks for sharing, Boomette.

      I don't know about you, but I'd love to have a doctor actually insist that I eat bacon. ...and to think, a recipe that makes bacon even tastier. Curse you. ;-}
