  • 5 slices thick-cut bacon, diced

  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

  • 10 Old El Paso™ flour tortillas for soft tacos & fajitas (6 inch)
  • 1/4 cup crumbled queso fresco cheese


  • 1

    Add garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook about 1 minute, stirring occasionally, until garlic is fragrant. Add Swiss chard and chicken broth. Cook 5 to 6 minutes or until Swiss chard is tender and has wilted.

    Fill each tortilla with Swiss chard and bacon mixture, then top with cheese.

  • Red pepper flakes can be quite spicy. For children or those who do not enjoy spicy food, eliminate red pepper flakes from the recipe.
  • Queso fresco cheese is very similar in texture to feta cheese. If you are unable to find queso fresco cheese, substitute feta cheese.
