Chipotle Ranch BLTs
We are trying to incorporate more “sandwich nights” at our house, to make things a bit easier during the week. I have a hard time just eating a plain old sandwich for dinner, I don’t know, maybe it’s because that is what I usually have for lunch and I just want something a little more special at dinnertime. Well last night was sandwich night at our house and I decided on BLTs. I haven’t had one of those in a long time and I have seen some good looking ones recently in magazines and blogs. I wanted to jazz up our BLTs a bit so I added fresh black pepper to the turkey bacon as it cooked. It gave it a crispy coating and a little kick. I also had some cucumber and avocado laying around so I added that to the sandwich. To make it extra special, instead of mayo I used some of the leftover homemade ranch dressing with a few dashes of Chipotle Tabasco added to it.
This BLT had a kick to it for sure, so if that is what you are looking for, try this out. Not your boring sandwich at all!Print
- slices of turkey bacon
- good whole grain sandwich bread, toasted (I’ve been addicted to Wheat Italian 5 Grain lately)
- sliced avocado
- sliced tomato
- sliced cucumber
- Ranch dressing
- Chipotle Tabasco sauce
- While bacon is cooking, grind some fresh pepper over both sides. Cook until crispy. Set on paper towel to drain excess grease.
- Make Chipotle Ranch: Pour a couple of tablespoons of your favorite ranch dressing into a small bowl. Add a few dashes of Chipotle Tabasco and stir to combine.
- Start to assemble sandwich: Layer lettuce, tomato, cucumber, avocado on one side of toast. Drizzle a good amount of dressing over fixings. Once bacon is ready, layer bacon over veggies.
- Cut in half and enjoy!
