Cheesy Chicken, Bacon, Avocado Quesadillas

These were amazing. I was pretty sure this recipe wouldn't be a fail but I had no idea how creamy the avocado would make these quesadillas and how all of the flavors would flow perfectly together and yet you would be able to taste each item. Homerun! The recipe is from they seriously have some awesome recipes but as always it is slightly adapted.

4 medium-sized flour tortilla shells
1 lb chicken, cut into bite-sized pieces
salt and pepper
1/2 cup scallions, diced
8 strips of bacon, cooked & crumbled
1 avocado, diced
cheese, shredded (I used colby jack)
2 tbsp butter

Fry bacon is skillet. Set aside 1/2 tbsp of bacon drippings and rinse pan. Add bacon drippings back to pan and saute the scallions for 2 minutes. Add the chicken, salt and pepper. Cook until chicken is golden brown and cooked through. Remove chicken and scallions, rinse pan.

Add 1/2 tbsp of butter to pan over medium heat, place the tortilla in the pan, add the chicken, bacon, avocado and cheese to half of the tortilla then fold the the torilla in half. Cook for about 1 to 2 more minutes on each side. Repeat until all the quesadillas are made


  1. Oh man...YUM! I'll be trying these for sure!

  2. This is one of the best ingredient lists I have ever seen. You just can't go wrong with avacado and bacon.
