The Bizarre Foods host joins Food & Wine culinary director Justin Chapple to teach viewers a new use for that liquid (or solid, depending on the state of things) gold you might not have considered before: Bacon fat tortillas.

But, the chef cautions, make sure not to add water too soon. After about two or three minutes, you'll see that you're not too far off from your target dough.

Once everything has blended together into a smooth consistency, roll out what Zimmern calls your "football," which is a big cylinder of dough. Chop it into smaller and smaller halves until you're left with small pieces, which will go on a tray under plastic wrap to rise.

While you're waiting, consider a rare bonus Mad Genius Tip from Zimmern: Don't wash your hands in hot water, because it will activate the glutens in the flour and make it stickier. Instead, use cold water, and the dough will come right off.
