  • Slice bacon and fry until bacon starts to turn crisp but not hard and brittle.
  • Remove from pan, drain bacon and set aside.
  • Spread butter lightly on one side of the flour tortilla shell.
  • Place buttered side of shell down, into a non-stick fry pan that has been preheated on medium heat.
  • Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of bacon over entire shell, then add 1 tablespoon Pico de gallo, and 1/4 cup shredded Colby/Monterey Jack cheese over the bacon.
  • Add pieces of the cooked chicken.
  • Place the second flour shell on top of fixings, buttered side up.
  • Cook for about one- two minutes just long enough to heat the inside ingredients and then carefully flip the quesadilla on the other side and finish cooking.
  • The quesadilla should be heated through but not browned.
  • Remove quesadilla and place on a serving dish and cut into individual triangle serving pieces.
  • Serve quesadillas with your favorite guacamole sour cream, and picante sauce.

    These were SO good! I used whole wheat tortillas, turkey bacon & salsa for the pico. I also used reduced fat cheese. The directions made is really easy, so thanks! (usually I struggle with getting burnt tortillas &/or filling getting everywhere!) I shredded the chicken; made it easier. I also used nonstick butter spray; saved some calories! Thank u so much for sharing; this is going to become a new favorite I'm sure!

    These were very good! I didn't have any pico de gallo so I whipped up my own as best I could by chopping up tomato, onion, bell pepper, some fresh oregano and basil and a touch of Rose's lime juice. Will definitely make these again. Thanks for the recipe!


I made this account back in 2001, when the site was called "Recipezaar". A lot has changed in my life since then. My kids are all grown and I try to eat a low-carb lifestyle now. Some of my older recipes were handed down from my grandmother. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I have. Current recipes that I post will mostly be low carb or keto.
