These are really good! you can adjust all amounts to taste. Prepare the ranch/salsa mixture well in advance and chill to blend the flavors.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 7 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons whipping cream (or use 18% cream)
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 medium green onions, finely chopped
  • 1 small bell pepper (red or green, seeded and finely chopped)
  • 5 pickled jalapeno peppers, slices chopped (or to taste)
  • 3 tablespoons butter (or to taste)
  • 34 cup ranch dressing (I use Hidden Valley ranch for this)
  • 34 cup prepared salsa
  • 1 pinch salt (optional)
  • shredded cheddar cheese (you will need about 3 cups or to taste, or use a Mexi-blend cheese)
  • 4 (10 inch) flour tortillas
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup diced cooked ham

Directions

  1. In a small bowl stir together the Ranch dressing with the salsa; mix to combine then season with a small amount of salt if desired; cover and chill.
  2. In a bowl whisk together the eggs and whipping cream until well blended; season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add in the green onions, bell pepper and chopped pickled jalapenos; mix to combine.
  4. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  5. Add in the egg mixture; cook without stirring.
  6. Lift the eggs on the bottom using a spatula to allow more batter to run along the sides of the pan to cook.
  7. Cover the skillet and continue to cook until the eggs are thickened and set but still moist (do not stir and make certain not to overcook the eggs).
  8. Slide the eggs onto a large glass plate; set aside.
  9. Sprinkle about 1/3 cup grated cheese over each tortilla, then top with a fourth of egg mixture.
  10. Sprinkle with crumbled cooked bacon and then cubed ham.
  11. Top with about 1/4 cup shredded cheese, then fold the tortilla in half over the filling, press gently to seal.
  12. Heat a small amount of oil over medium-high heat in a skillet or coat with cooking spray.
  13. Using a large spatula carefully add in one or two quesadillas at a time and cook for about 3 minutes on each side, or until light golden brown.
  14. Serve with the salsa mixture.
  15. Delicious!

These are so good. I did chunk my peppers and added them to the blender with the eggs and cream and made quick work of the chopping and mixing. I have come to like the pre-cooked bacon strips and I'm sure bacon bits could work too. I saved half of my serving for lunch at work the next day - warmed in the microwave it made a very tasty meal.
