Spice up your tocino by literally putting spice into it.
We love the Pampanga's Best brand, because it's sweet without being irritating. Plus, it has a healthy amount of fatty portions which I love. We just add water to it and let it boil till there's only that thick sauce left (to put on our rice).
Sometimes though, when i'm feeling more industrious, I cut it up in smaller pieces. Bite size pieces. When cooked this way, they even become more tender. Then I add about half a teaspoon of chili powder. It adds a kick to the tocino without being too overpowering.
Sometimes, we also add sweet chili sauce (2-3 tbsp) to it.
The downside? You end up eating more rice with this one. And it's better when served with steamed rice over fried rice.
