Chicken Bacon Avocado Quesadillas

16 Jan

Introduction:

While stumbling for recipes across the vast expanses of the inter-web (one of Emster’s favorite past-times), we found this idea for dinner. Of course it sounded so good, that we immediately made it and ate it all! It is so delicious and such a great combination of flavors, there is simply no need to improve upon the concept. Anyways, let’s give credit where credit is due…thank you Kevin and Amanda for a great recipe. Together we can spread the Avocado-y Bacon-y goodness one blog post at a time.

Ingredients:

  • tortilla shells
  • 1 lb chicken
  • 1/2 lb bacon
  • 1-2 avocados
  • 1 large onion
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • onion powder

*This recipe makes about 4-5 quesadillas.

Instructions:

1.) Cook bacon.

2.) Cut chicken into bite size pieces. Season to taste with salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. Saute chicken in the frying pan with olive oil and onions until chicken is thoroughly cooked and onions are translucent. Drain chicken and pat dry.

3.) Peel and slice avocados. Shred cheese and wipe pan clean.

4.) Over medium-high heat, lightly grease the pan (butter, etc.) and place tortilla in the center. Place chicken, bacon, avocado and cheese on your tortilla. If you’re going to spread it over the entire tortilla, make sure not to put too much filling (we learned this the hard way). You can also load up only half with filling and fold the other half over.

5.) Flip quesadilla over until both sides are nicely browned.

6.)Serve with sour cream, salsa, or any other toppings you might like!

Just in case anyone actually uses these printer friendly versions, here you go!
