Sweet BBQ Bacon Quesadillas

This recipe was born on a busy school night. We were rushing off to a school performance and church meeting just after piano lessons. I had intended on making our BBQ Chicken Quesadillas, but realized just before making them that the chicken had gone bad in the fridge that I had intended on using. So we improvised and cooked up some bacon really quickly, threw it all together and it ended up being very tasty and fast. I hope this can help you on a busy day as well.

These directions are super simple. Grab a frying pan or electric skillet (the large skillets are awesome for doing a big batch at the same time). Heat it up. Place the tortillas on the pan or skillet. Spread a small spoonful of BBQ sauce on a tortilla. top with cheese, green onions, cilantro and bacon. Flip it after just a minute or so (when the cheese is melty, but before the tortilla burns). Pull it off the heat and dinner is served!! Throw that on the table with a bagged salad and some fruit and you’ve got 5 food groups covered, and dinner has just been prepped in minutes.

Quesadillas are a quick and easy stand by over here- usually served with salsa. I really like the smokiness the BBQ adds. Sweet, tangy and delicious! Another thing I really love is that you can prep the bacon, sauce and cheese ahead of time, so you pretty much just need to warm it up.
