Cook bacon

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Arrange bacon strips in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in the bottom of the oven until crispy and cooked through, 8-12 min.**Using tongs, transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.


Meanwhile, core, then cut hot pepper into 1/2-inch pieces, removing seeds for less heat. (TIP: We suggest using gloves when prepping hot peppers!)Peel, then cut half the onion (whole onion for 4 ppl) into 1/2-inch pieces.Roughly chop cilantro.

Start bison and onions

Meanwhile, heat a medium oven-proof pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add bison and onions. Cook, stirring and breaking up bison into smaller pieces, until onions are tender, 3-4 min. (NOTE: Bison will finish cooking in step 4.) Season with salt and pepper.

Cook hot peppers and sauce

Add hot peppers to the pan with bison and onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until peppers are tender-crisp and no pink remains in bison, 2-3 min.** Carefully drain and discard any fat from the pan.Add Enchilada Spice Blend, tomato sauce base and 1/4 cup (1/2 cup) water. Cook, stirring often, until spices are fragrant and sauce thickens slightly, 1-2 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, then remove the pan from heat. (NOTE: If you don't have an oven-proof pan, transfer mixture to an 8x8-inch baking dish.)Sprinkle cheese over top. Bake in the middle of the oven until cheese melts, 3-4 min.

Warm tortillas and make salad

Meanwhile, wrap tortillas in foil, then place in the top of the oven until warm, 4-5 min. Peel, pit, then cut avocado into 1/2-inch pieces.Whisk together vinegar, 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) sugar and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil in a large bowl.Add avocado, spring mix and half the cilantro. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine.

Finish and serve

When cheese is melted on bison-cheese mixture, carefully remove the pan from oven and crumble bacon over top.Sprinkle with remaining cilantro. Serve tortillas, bison-cheese mixture and avocado salad family-style.
