When making these delicious breakfast tacos, there are two ways to cook bacon.
One is the oven, the best way to cook bacon for a crowd. Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and heat oven to 400 F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Arrange strips of bacon (as much as 1 pound) on foil (slices can overlap slightly). Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake until the bacon is browned and crispy, 10 to 15 minutes. Baking sheet (and grease) will be very hot! Carefully transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
Then there's the stovetop: Place four strips of bacon in a 12-inch skillet (regular or nonstick) and add 1/2 cup water. Turn heat to high. When the water comes to boil, reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking until the water evaporates, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low and keep cooking until bacon is crispy and golden brown on the first side, about 2 minutes. Use tongs to flip the bacon and cook until crispy and golden brown on the second side, about 2 minutes. Transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
