Game Day Recipe: Bacon Wrapped Taco Boat Bites

Who doesn't like finger food wrapped in bacon? This is one Game Day recipe your guest will love! 

We like to stock up on at Walmart with some pantry essentials, and when I say that, I of course mean Old El Paso Taco Boats and kits. They are a great start to any snack, dinner or dessert. The mini soft taco boats are my favorite and a Game Day recipe right up there in the top 5.

It's a pretty simple recipe, the base of the tacos being refried beans, meat (we use vegetarian crumbles) and brown rice, with taco or fajita seasoning cooked in a skillet, then scooped into the Old El Paso mini soft taco boats, topped with you choice of cheese, wrapped all the filled boats nice and pretty in a strip of uncooked bacon. 
I glazed some of them with my homemade barbecue sauce. 

Bake for 25-30 minutes at 400 degrees
or until the bacon is fully cooked.

If you're like us, we can't seem to buy enough barbecue sauce, so out of necessity I created my own recipe. 
Now this is all to taste so adjust the amount of each ingredient to you liking.

homemade barbecue sauce:

3 tablespoons Ketchup
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon molasses
1 tablespoon apple vinegar

You can serve these simple on a large platter as a yummy finger food or with a bed of romain lettuce and some sour cream to dress up your guest's plates, if you're having a more formal gathering. Either way, they'll be gone fast!
