bomb-diggity bacon salsa

The other day I was watching the Food Network (shocker), and saw that my old friend Trisha Yearwood now has a cooking show (coincidentally, she also does Zumba). I already had an appreciation for Trisha, but this knowledge brought it to a whole new level. Turns out she’s a pretty accomplished cook too, and makes her salsa with…wait for it…
 
BACON.
 
I’ve been dying to try the recipe ever since. Needless to say, I finished off my bag of chips (I’m going to need to start looking for something else to put this salsa on).
 
Below is a slightly modified version of her “Salsa Ranchera” (see original recipe here). Salsa Ranchera just didn’t quite capture the greatness of the recipe, so I also modified the title.

NOTE: I know everyone’s spiciness preference is different, so you will want to adjust this recipe to your taste. I thought two peppers made it just a little too spicy (my lips were burning). If you don’t like any heat at all, I would probably just replace the serrano pepper with a green bell pepper. If you’re not as much of a pansy as I am, go for two.
