When I saw the recipe challenge of creating a great "Appy Hour" treat for the Super Bowl, featuring Hormel brands and products, I couldn't help but choose my favorite tropical blends and use SPAM - an Island favorite staple! These were absolutely delicious, quick and easy. Make ahead, re-heat and plan on doubling the recipe for friends!

How To Make tropical glazed bacon spam tacos w/crunchy pineapp

  • 1
    For the Crunchy Pineapple Slaw, in a bowl, whisk together the sugar, soy sauce, vinegars, Ponzu and sesame oil and gently mix-in remaining ingredients. Cover and chill while preparing tacos.
  • 2
    To make the Tacos, heat the olive oil in a large heavy skillet on medium-low, then add the remaining ingredients and simmer, stirring occasionally, until meat browns and mixture is thickened, about 15 minutes. Remove skillet to a warm oven until needed.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, heat 2 or 3 tablespoons of the peanut oil in a small heavy skillet on medium and when the oil shimmers, add a tortilla and fry until golden brown on both sides, just a minute or two. They should still be pliable. Drain on paper towels on a baking sheet and repeat with remaining tortillas, adding more oil when necessary and lowering heat if needed. Place in a warm oven until needed.

    To serve, drain the slaw and add a generous scoop onto each tortilla, then top with equal portions of the taco mixture. Serve and enjoy!
