No Photo


  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin seed
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 20 slices bacon, thick sliced
  • 4 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Place an oven rack in the center of the oven and heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line two rimmed 15 x 11 inch baking pans with foil. Place a cooling rack on the foil on each.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, chili powder, ground cumin, cumin seeds, coriander and cayenne.
  3. Spread some of the mixture out on a piece of wax paper and form into a 12 inch square.
  4. Lay the bacon on in strips and press down to coat heavily.
  5. Lay strips, barely touching, on the racks over the foil.
  6. Bake one batch at a time for 12 minutes.
  7. Turn the bacon over with tongs and continue baking for another 10 minutes, until the bacon looks deep brown, but not burned.
  8. Remove from the oven and immediately move the strips to a plate covered with paper towels.
  9. Do the same with the other pan of bacon.
  10. Keep the bacon in a warm oven until used.


If not removed from the racks immediately, the bacon will stick to the rack.
