Not your average quesadillas, these are filled with a mixture of Swiss cheese, bacon and pineapple for a fun and unforgettable meal.
- 1⁄4 cup honey mustard
- 2 tablespoons pineapple preserves
- 8 (10 inch) flour tortillas
- 1 1⁄2 cups shredded swiss cheese
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
- 1⁄2 cup crumbled cooked bacon
- 1 1⁄2 cups unsweetened pineapple tidbits, drained
- In a small bowl, stir together the honey mustard and pineapple preserves.
- Divide the mixture evenly between 4 of the tortillas.
- Spread evenly to within 1 inch of the edges. Distribute the Swiss cheese, chicken, bacon evenly over the pineapple mixture; top with remaining tortillas to make quesadillas.
- Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F.
- Heat a large skillet over medium heat.
- Melt a small amount of the butter in the skillet, tilting the pan to cover the surface with butter.
- Place one of the quesadillas into the skillet, and fry on each side until lightly browned and the cheese has melted, about 1 1/2 minutes per side.
- Keep cooked quesadillas in a warm oven while you fry the remaining.
- To serve, cut each quesadilla into 6 wedges and arrange on a platter with pineapple tidbits in the center.
We really enjoyed this variation of quesadillas. I seasoned my chicken with some onion powder and garlic to give more flavor. It was delicious. I think next time I am going to add jerk seasoning to the chicken to give even more flavor! Thank you for posting this great recipe!!
These were a cool variation on quesadillas. I didn't have any cooked chicken on hand, though I'm sure it would have been good and I used canadian bacon. I also used crushed pineapple instead of pineapple preserves and dribbled some Pickapeppa sauce across the filling, as well as on the side for dipping. Really nice flavors - though for my family's preferences, I think I would use monterey jack cheese next time instead of swiss. Thanks for sharing!
Haven't yet been to the right store to get pineapple preserves, so I made my own by adding a well-drained [squeezed & blotted!!] small can of crushed pineapple to some apricot pineapple preserves! The cooked chicken I had was shredded, & that worked fine, too! The result was a very tasty meal for 4 of us! This is definitely on my 'to make again & again' list! Thanks for posting it!
