Mexican Club Sandwich

Most of a classic club sandwich ingredients are here; bacon, turkey or chicken, cheese, lettuce and tomatoes.  Instead of three layers of toast there are three crispy tortillas, and guacamole in place of mayonnaise.

3 slices of bacon
3 flour tortillas (8-inch)
1 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
4 oz. sliced roast turkey or chicken
3 slices pepper Jack Cheese
4 slices tomato
2 Tbsp. salsa
1 Tbsp. sour cream

Quick Guacamole

1 avocado
2 Tbsp. minced red onion
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
Salt, black pepper or cayenne pepper to taste

Preheat broiler.

Cook bacon in a skillet until crisp.  Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate; reserve drippings.  Brush both sides of tortillas with drippings, transfer to a baking sheet, and broil until beginning to brown, 2-3 minutes.  Flip and broil until crisp, 1-2 minutes
To assemble, spread guacamole on 2 tortillas and top both with lettuce.

Place turkey and cheese on one of these tortillas, then stack the other one on top of the cheese, lettuce side up.

Layer bacon and tomato on top of lettuce.

Top with salsa, sour cream and the remaining plain tortilla.

Poke 4 sandwich picks into the sandwich, and cut the club into quarters between the picks.
