Instructions

Pickle jalapeños
1

Before starting, wash and dry all produce. Thinly slice jalapeño into rounds, removing seeds for less heat. (TIP: We suggest using gloves when prepping jalapeños!)Add jalapeños, vinegar, 2 tbsp (4 tbsp) water and 1 tsp (2 tsp) sugar to a small pot. Season with salt. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Once simmering, cook, stirring often, until sugar dissolves, 1-2 min. Remove the pot from heat. Transfer jalapeños, including liquid, to a medium bowl. Place in the fridge to cool.

Prep and mix salsa
2

Peel, then finely chop shallot.Cut corn in half crosswise. Quarter tomatoes. Thinly slice green onions.Zest, then juice half the lime (whole lime for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lime into wedges. Add tomatoes, shallots, half the lime zest, half the green onions, 2 tsp (4 tsp) lime juice and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil to a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine.

Cook bacon
3

On a separate cutting board, cut bacon crosswise into 1/4-inch strips.Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add bacon. Cook, stirring occasionally, until crispy, 5-7 min.** Remove the pan from heat. Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Set aside.Carefully drain and discard all but 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) fat from the pan.

Boil corn and warm tortillas
4

Meanwhile, add corn and enough water to cover (by approx. 1-2 inches) to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Season with salt.Cover and bring to a boil over high heat, 3-4 min.Once boiling, remove the pot from heat and set aside, still covered. Wrap tortillas in paper towels. Microwave until tortillas are warm and flexible, 1 min. (TIP: You can skip this step if you don't want to warm the tortillas!)

Cook beef
5

Heat the pan with reserved bacon fat over medium-high.When hot, add beef. Cook, breaking up beef into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.**Add Mexican Seasoning. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.Remove the pan from heat.

Finish and serve
6

Drain pickled jalapeños and discard liquid.Brush each corn cob half with 1/2 tbsp butter and season with salt.Divide corn and tortillas between plates. Top tortillas with beef, bacon, pickled jalapeños, salsa and guacamole.Sprinkle remaining lime zest and remaining green onions over corn.
