Chicken Bacon Avocado Quesadillas #SundaySupper

I am back with the talented #SundaySupper team today.  This week the focus is back to school.  School is back in session here, so our nights are busy again.   Football practice, homework, and just playing leave little time for anything else.  It is times like this when you need quick and easy recipes to get dinner on the table.  If you are out of ideas just wait – there are so many great ideas at the end of this post.

Quesadillas are a favorite at our house.  And they are so versatile, you can use whatever you have in your fridge.  Leftover Chicken?  Perfect.  Leftover Taco Meat?  Great.  Just cheese and a few veggies?  That works too.  Really it is just a tortilla with cheese and whatever else you want to put in.  It doesn’t always have to be Mexican either.  You could use breaded chicken, Mozzarella cheese, and dip it in marinara sauce.  Or maybe chicken, carrots, onions, and dip it in a peanut satay sauce.  They take minutes to prepare, and you can change it up to meet everyone’s tastes.

This version is one of my favorites.  Chicken, Bacon, and Avocado are perfect together.  I like it on a sandwich, and I love it in this quesadilla.  You can use leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken to get this meal on the table quickly.  Just crisp up some bacon, dice and avocado and you are done.  If you have fresh tomatoes they would be wonderful in here too.  Serve with this Red Onion Salsa for a wonderful dinner for the whole family.

Quesadillas are a very versatile easy dinner to get on the table. This version is filled with crispy bacon, chicken, and buttery avocado. Great for busy school nights.
Ingredients
  • 2 tortillas, small fajita size
  • ½ cup Cheddar cheese
  • ½ avocado, diced
  • 2 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • ⅓ cup chicken, cooked and diced

Instructions
  1. Preheat a griddle or a large non-stick skillet to medium-high heat.
  2. Spray pan with non-stick spray. Place on tortilla down. Top with ¼ cup cheese, bacon, avocado, chicken, and then the rest of the cheese. Cover with the other tortilla. Cook for a few minutes until the cheese starts to melt and the tortilla starts to brown. Flip quesadilla over. Cook until cheese is completely melted, and tortilla is crispy. You can cover the pan to help melt the cheese if needed.
  3. Serve with salsa.
