BBQ Chicken Bacon Quesadillas

"I found this recipe in a GIANT grocery stores Healthy Ideas magazine and decided to make it for my brood one weekend. They went before I could even get a bite so they must be good! I made them according to directions except that I used honey BBQ sauce because that is what I had on hand. I also used real bacon bits to save time instead of cooking and crumbling bacon. This recipe makes 6 appetizer sized servings."

Ready In:




  • Place chicken in a bowl and mix with 1/4 c BBQ sauce.
  • Lay tortilla wraps on a clean surface.
  • Working on half the wrap, spread with 1 Tbsp BBQ sauce.
  • Spread 1/4 c chicken/BBQ mixture (half the mixture) over the side of the wrap that was spread with BBQ sauce.
  • Evenly distribute half the onion, half the bacon and half the cheese over the chicken/BBQ mixture.
  • Fold the plain side of the wrap over the chicken/BBQ side of the wrap.
  • Repeat steps 1-6 to make a second quesadilla.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat.
  • Spray the skillet with cooking spray and carefully add one quesadilla with the fold at the center of the pan and the open edge at the outer edge of the pan. This will make it easier to flip without spilling.
  • Cook for 3-5 minutes, flipping once halfway through.
  • Repeat steps 8-10 for the second quesadilla.
  • Place finished quesadillas on a cutting board and cut into thirds.
  • Serve with fresh salsa and low-fat sour cream, if desired.
