- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup bourbon
- 2 tablespoons Chugwater Chili Gourmet Chili Blend
- 1 package of bacon
- Combine 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup bourbon, and 2 tablespoons of Chugwater Chili seasoning in a bowl.
- Lay bacon out on a cooling rack set over a cookie sheet (covering the cookie sheet in foil makes it easier to clean up). Use a basting brush to coat the bacon with the spice mixture.
- Bake at 400 for 15 min. Remove from oven, flip bacon, coat other side with the spice mixture, and let sit for 1 minute. Return to oven for 12-15 min.
- Remove from oven when bacon is crispy but not burnt. Allow bacon to cool but take it off the rack before it sticks.
