Note from Delish:

I am one tocino addict. I can eat tocino every day. With that instead of buying frozen tocino, I learned how to make one at home. It’s much healthier and with no preservatives added. In order to achieve that reddish color, just added a little banana ketchup. I don’t want to use food coloring.
