Ingredients

  • 4 10-inch flour tortillas
  • 1 Tablespoon bacon dripping
  • 8 slices Pepper Jack cheese
  • 3/4 Cups cooked and crumbled bacon
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 1 medium avocado, pitted, peeled, sliced

Directions

Brush one side of each tortilla with reserved bacon drippings. Place tortillas, bacon-dripping side down, onto large cutting board. Place 2 slices cheese onto half of each tortilla. Top evenly with bacon, tomato and avocado. Fold each tortilla in half over filling. Heat 12-inch skillet over medium heat; place 2 quesadillas into skillet. Cook, turning once, 5-6 minutes or until golden brown on each side and cheese is melted. Cut into wedges. Serve with salsa and sour cream.

Bacon Shopping Tip

Look for center cut bacon which comes from a leaner part of the belly - you'll get more meat and less fat.

Bacon Cooking Tip

Cook bacon over medium to medium-low heat to prevent it from burning, and occasionally pour off the fat. You can save it for later use as a cooking oil.
