In a large frying pan or cast iron skillet, cook bacon until crispy. Remove slices from skillet to drain on a paper towel. Pour bacon fat from pan.
Meanwhile, shape ground beef into 4 burger patties. Season both sides of patties with salt and pepper. Add burger patties to skillet over medium high heat. Cook about 4 minutes per side for medium. Top each burger with a slice of cheese then cover skillet with a lid and cook until cheese has melted. Remove from heat.
In a smaller skillet, heat canola oil until very hot but not smoking. Quickly cook tortillas in the oil turning once and removing from pan within a minute. Drain on paper towels to remove any excess oil.
To build each taco, slice burgers and cooked bacon slices in half. Top each tortilla with half a burger and bacon, lettuce, tomato and avocado. Serve with pickles, ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise if desired.
