4 green onions, chopped
3 tablespoons chopped black olives
1-1/2 cups chopped pecans (optional)
1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Chop the cooled bacon into small pieces.
