This is very good! A nice blend of salty, creamy and tangy. I doubled the ingredients and made with two tortillas sandwiched together. Will definitely make this again. Made for ZWT8 Family Picks.

We are big fans of quesadillas & enjoyed this one as well. We did have red onions so I used green onions. We don't care for blue cheese so we sub'd for feta cheese. Added abit of jalapeno also & baked it in the toaster oven. I agree that I wasn't crazy about the tangy overtone of the ranch dressing with the avocado so cut it back & sub'd abit of yogurt instead. The quesadilla was great & the dressing warmed up to us after a few bites, thanks for sharing.

A nice flavor combination in an easy attractive quesadilla. The bacon and the fresh onion add a little crunch, and the blue cheese makes this more than ordinary. I didn't make the dressing - I think the ranch flavor might overwhelm the blue cheese. (Note that the dressing amounts are for 8 servings. This is a rich meal, but not nearly as many calories as the Nutrition Facts suggest.)
