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 our day 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.

Yield: 1 Quesadilla
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

These delicious quesadillas are the perfect summertime meal or snack and keep the kitchen nice and cool.

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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 love quesadillas but sadly my husband is not a fan so they don't get made in our household. I wish I could come to yours to try these out!
