Bacon Chicken Cheese Quesadillas

Makes five large quesadillas

  • 10, 10-inch flour tortillas
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, softened
  • 4 cups diced chicken
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey jack cheese
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 4 teaspoons diced onions
  • 3 slices bacon, cooked
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 dash salt

For serving as toppings:

Sour cream

Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Spread half of the butter on one side of each tortilla.
Put one tortilla, butter side down, in the hot pan, then spread cheese and cut up chicken strips in the center of the tortilla, leaving about an each all the way around.
Sprinkle the tomato, onion over the chicken and cheese.
Crumble the slice of cooked bacon and sprinkle it over the other ingredients.
Sprinkle the cilantro and a dash of salt over the other ingredients.
Top off the quesadilla with the remaining tortilla, being sure that the buttered side is facing up.
When the bottom tortilla has browned, after 45-90 seconds, flip the quesadilla over and grill the other side for the same amount of time.
Remove the quesadilla from the pan, and, using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut the quesadilla three times through the middle like a pizza, creating 6 equal slices.
Cover to keep warm while preparing additional quesadillas.
Serve hot with sour cream, guacamole, and salsa on the side and hot buttered white rice.
