    Units: US | Metric

    • 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)
    • 3/4 cup ranch dressing (I use Hidden Valley ranch for this)
    • 3/4 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


    1. 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. 2
      In a bowl whisk together the eggs and whipping cream until well blended; season with salt and pepper to taste.
    3. 3
      Add in the green onions, bell pepper and chopped pickled jalapenos; mix to combine.
    4. 4
      Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
    5. 5
      Add in the egg mixture; cook without stirring.
    6. 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. 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. 8
      Slide the eggs onto a large glass plate; set aside.
    9. 9
      Sprinkle about 1/3 cup grated cheese over each tortilla, then top with a fourth of egg mixture.
    10. 10
      Sprinkle with crumbled cooked bacon and then cubed ham.
    11. 11
      Top with about 1/4 cup shredded cheese, then fold the tortilla in half over the filling, press gently to seal.
    12. 12
      Heat a small amount of oil over medium-high heat in a skillet or coat with cooking spray.
    13. 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. 14
      Serve with the salsa mixture.

      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.
