Spicy Ranch Bacon Avocado Quesadilla

Who doesn’t love Quesadilla’s? One of the things I love about them is how versatile they are. You can change the ingredients to suit anyone’s taste. Even picky eaters will eat Quesadilla’s if you put the right ingredients inside. My children all happen to love this Spicy Ranch Bacon Avocado Quesadilla, but a few don’t want the Avocado, so I just take it out for them. Voila! Easy!

Today we are celebrating #SundaySupper with Katie Workman for the second time. Last month she joined our team on twitter to have a fun, action packed hour of Q&A with Katie. So fun! We shared a whole bunch of recipes from her very awesome cookbook The Mom 100 Cookbook.

This month our challenge was a little different. We were asked to show off different versions of the last group of recipes. We were also given the option of putting our own spin on Katie’s Quesadillas or Grilled Pizza. As you can see I chose the Quesadillas and came up with a Spicy Ranch Bacon Avocado Quesadilla. It was fantastic in case you were wondering. Really. In fact, we’ve had three times since the original creation. Don’t judge. We like bacon. And Avocado. And Spicy Ranch.

Moving on, I bet you want to know how to make your own Spicy Ranch Bacon Avocado Quesadilla, right?

It’s ridiculously easy, actually.

These delicious quesadillas are the perfect summertime meal or snack and keep the kitchen nice and cool.
Serves: 1 Quesadilla
  • 2 Flour Tortillas per Quesadilla
  • Spicy Ranch (we make our own from scratch but you can use the Spicy Ranch mix packets found in the salad dressing aisle)
  • 1 c. chopped or thinly sliced avocado
  • 4 bacon strips, cooked and cut into pieces
  • 1 c. cheese, we use Monterrey Jack or pepper jack for an extra kick
  • cooking spray
  1. I’ll be honest, we use our George Foreman 360 Grill because it has a Quesadilla plate and it’s easy for the kids to help. But you can do this on the stovetop.
  2. Basically we spread a layer of spicy ranch across the top of one of the tortillas.
  3. Add the cheese and spread it outward towards the edges but not all the way to the edge or you’ll make a huge mess when it melts.
  4. Add the bacon pieces. I’m not gonna lie, we use a lot of bacon. I really don’t remember how many pieces we used, mostly because we cut it all up and then pile it on after it’s cut up. So I have no clue. It was at least 4 pcs. We like bacon.
  5. Top with the avocado.
  6. Take the other Quesadilla and spread some spicy ranch dressing on that one too. Now put the spicy ranch face down on the avocado layer.
  7. Put the whole thing in a frying pan on the stove, use a griddle or play with the george foreman. Obviously each of these, the cooking times will differ. Mine took less than 5 minutes in the George Foreman on high.
  8. Serve with a side of spicy ranch dipping sauce. Enjoy!



I added some chopped onion, black olives and herbs to mine, but my kids ate theirs as is. So good, so easy and one of our new favorites – our Spicy Ranch Bacon Avocado Quesadilla.

    Beautiful picture, delicious recipe! I am going to have to try these – I know my guys would love it!

  2. says

    I spy ranch!! Spicy ranch makes it even better. Since you make it from scratch, how do you make ranch spicy? Is it cayenne? Chili powder? Red pepper flakes? All of the above? I’ll take mine without the avocado too please :)

    Laura and Carla – How to make Spicy Ranch Dressing from Scratch –
    You start with my Homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing then add a little cayenne, white pepper and/or chili powder to taste. I usually start with about a tsp of each and just add until it’s the right spice. Of course, I really love spice, so I add quite a bit more.

    We also sometimes use Tobasco instead. Add more seasonings if you want a super spicy eye watering ranch or use very little if you want a milder spice. Enjoy!

    Carla, I’ve never used the red pepper flakes but that’s another thought. Interesting.

    I had idea the Foreman grill has a Quesadilla plate! Where have I been.

    We are Quesadilla nuts overs here… Everything tastes better inside a flour tortilla with gooey cheese! I am soooo going to try these Nicole. Hubby will flip over the bacon and avocado combo.

    Happy Sunday to you and yours.

  7. Lane Richeson says

    Mmm ranch, bacon, avocado sounds great! I bet jalapeno ranch would be great in these (is that what spicy ranch is?)

  8. Sandy Garland Blaser says
