Bacon, Avocado and Tomato Quesadillas

Delicious for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Bacon Avocado Quesadilla on plate

Warm quesadillas with melted cheese are so good on their own.

Then add crispy bacon, avocado and tomato to the mix and they’re even better.

These quesadillas are great for breakfast, a snack, lunch or even a light dinner.

When cut into quarters, quesadillas make a scrumptious appetizer too.

In this recipe, jalapeno jack cheese is used but feel free to change up the cheese to what you may have on hand or like.

The cheese for this recipe can be sliced or shredded.

Serve these quesadillas with a side of sour cream, salsaguacamole and pico de gallo.

…bacon and flour tortillas

printable recipe with the measurements and instructions is located at the bottom of this post.

Here’s how to make it.

For the Bacon:

Raw Bacon in Pan

In a microwave bacon tray or skillet, cook the bacon.

Raw Bacon in Pan

For a microwave bacon cooker, I just put a paper towel over the bacon and cook it until it reaches the desired crispiness (about 4 minutes).

The timing will vary depending on the microwave and how crisp you like your bacon.

Crispy Bacon on Pan

After the bacon is cooked crispy, set the pieces onto a paper towel-lined plate to drain off the excess grease.  Set aside.

For the Avocado, Tomato and Jalapeno:

Avocado on Cutting Board

Cut the avocado in have and remove the seed.

Using a spoon, scoop out the avocado from the skin.

Sliced Avocado on cutting board

Then, slice the avocado as thin as possible.  Set aside.

Sliced Tomatoes on cutting board

Slice the tomato as thin as possible and set aside.

Sliced Jalapeno on cutting board

Next, remove the stem and seeds from the jalapeno and slice it as thin as possible.  Set aside.

For the Quesadillas:

Sliced jalapeno Cheese on plate

On a large plate or cutting board, lay one flour tortilla.

Then add 1/4 of the cheese to the tortilla.

Top with ½ of the bacon slices.

Sliced Tomato and Bacon on tortilla

Then top with ½ of the tomato slices.

Avocado and Tomatoes on tortilla

Next add ½ of the avocado slices.

TIP – When the avocados are sliced thin it’s hard to pick them up without breaking them.  An easy way to do this is to slide a knife under them to pick them up.

Next top with ½ of the sliced jalapenos.

Nacho-type jalapenos (in a jar) can also be used if preferred.

Add a dash or two of pepper.

Sliced Cheese on Quesadilla

Next, top with about the same amount of cheese that was initially added to the tortilla.

Lastly, top with another tortilla.

Then repeat the process with the rest of the same ingredients.

Melting Butter in Pan

Warming the Quesadillas – Heat a medium size skillet on low to medium heat.

Add ½ of the butter and as soon as it melts, add one of the quesadillas.

Quesadilla in Pan

The idea is to cook each side just enough to melt the cheese.

Use a spatula to peek under the side that’s touching the skillet to make sure it’s not getting too brown (it should be a light golden color).

As soon as the cheese starts to melt (on the side touching the skillet), carefully flip over the quesadilla to the other side (no need to add more butter at this point).

Quesadilla on Cutting Board

When the cheese starts to melt on the side of the tortilla that is touching the skillet, remove the quesadilla and set aside.

Cover the quesadilla that was just made with foil to keep it warm.

Then add the rest of the butter to the skillet, and repeat the cooking process for the other quesadilla.

Cut Quesadilla on cutting board

Serving the Quesadillas – Cut each quesadilla in half.
