Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, chopped or shredded
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 cups shredded cheese blend, Colby and Monterey Jack is my favorite
  • 1/2 cup ranch dressing, homemade or store bought
  • 4 burrito size tortillas

Optional Garnishes

  • Shredded iceberg lettuce
  • Pico do Gallo
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole
  • Cilantro
  • Green Onion

Instructions

  1. Prepare Your Ingredients - Cook and shred the chicken breast. You can use rotisserie chicken for a quick and easy option. Cook the bacon until crispy, then crumble it into small pieces.
  2. Cook the Quesadillas - Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat and add a small amount of butter. Place the folded quesadillas in the skillet, cooking two at a time if space allows. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until the tortillas are golden brown and crispy, and the cheese is melted.

Notes

You can modify this recipe by using different sizes of tortillas. Corn tortillas would also be a delicious substitute to flour.

Make it spicy! Added some jalapeños or hot sauce if you like a little kick.
