posted in Food & Drink
  • 1 (12 oz.) can regular Coca-Cola (see note)
    ¼ cup brown sugar
    ½ pound thick-cut bacon (~8 slices)
    For the Queso
    2 Tbsp unsalted butter
    2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
    ½ tsp cumin
    1 cup milk
    1 cup Monterey jack cheese, shredded
    1 cup mild cheddar cheese, shredded
    ½ cup sour cream
    For the Loaded Tots
    2 (28-oz.) packages tater tots
    ¼ cup pickled jalapenos
    1 cup Mexican-blend cheese, shredded
    ¼ cup green onions, thinly sliced

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
    Place the Coca-Cola in small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until liquid reduces to ~1/3 cup. Remove from heat and stir brown sugar into the reduced Coca –Cola. Set aside. (Note: This will take ~15-20 minutes.)
    Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place bacon in 1 layer on foil. Bake for 15 minutes, or until bacon just begins to turn brown.

  • Remove pan from oven and carefully drain grease. Brush the bacon slices with the reduced Coca-Cola.
    Return bacon to oven and bake for 3 minutes.
    Remove pan and brush bacon again with the reduced Coca-Cola.
    Return bacon to oven and bake for 3-5 more minutes, or until bacon is fully cooked.
    Brush bacon once again with the reduced Coca-Cola. Transfer bacon from pan to a plate; set aside until bacon has cooled.
    Cut bacon into small pieces; set aside.

  • Using a medium sauté pan, add butter and place over medium-low heat.
    Once butter has melted, add flour and cumin. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add milk, shredded Monterey Jack and shredded cheddar. Continue cooking for 4-5 more minutes, or until mixture thickens and cheese is fully melted.
    Remove mixture from heat and stir in sour cream.

  • Bake tater tots according to package directions.
    Place tater tots on a large plate and top with pickled jalapenos, shredded cheese and green onions. Drizzle Queso over the top of the tater tops. Sprinkle with crumbled Coca-Cola Glazed Bacon.
    Serve hot.
