Aug 27, Quesadillas can be more than just cheese and tortillas - take a look

Quesadillas are always quick & mostly easy but are they always exciting & special? No way, I say. When you think of a quesadilla you think melted cheese on a tortilla; ho,hum. Simple to make, good to eat, but certainly not exciting. Now these quesadilla recipes will prove to you that there are enough variations on this Mexican standard to fill a web-page - as well as your stomach. Only your imagination limits you. Since tortillas are 8 to 10 inches across and you probably don't own a skillet large enough to cook more than one at a time, I say, get yourself a really large electric griddle; or you could bake them in the oven on cookie sheets when you're doing a bunch. This technique might bother a quesadilla purist but it doesn't bother me. Quick and easy RULES!

And don't feel locked in to the type of tortilla suggested in the recipe if you favor corn over flour or vice versa. This is really very simple cooking so don't take it too seriously - Have fun!

Bacon And Blue Cheese Grilled Quesadillas

Ok, so your sister hates blue cheese. Just don't invite her when you treat the rest of your eaters to this terrific dish.

1 lb bacon, cooked crisp and chopped6 flour tortillas (10-inch)2 cups Mozzarella cheese, shredded1/2 cup blue cheese, crumbled3 tomatoes, cut into 4 slices each2 avocados, peeled, pitted and sliced into 6 slices each1/2 cup flat leaf parsley, choppedAvocado Mayo3 avocados, diced2 cups mayonnaise2 limes, juice of1/4 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped1 pinch cayenne peppersalt, to taste

Heat grill while preparing Avocado Mayo. In a blender combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. Set aside.

On a medium grill lay out the flour tortillas (you can work with one at a time if you like or if space is limited on your grill). Divided evenly, on one side of the tortilla and in this order, top each with mozzarella cheese, bacon, blue cheese, tomato slices, avocado slices and parsley. Fold empty side of tortilla over the topping side.

Grill just a couple of minutes until cheese is melted. This will cook fast. Carefully flip each Quesadilla with a spatula and tongs. Cook an additional 2 minutes. Remove from grill. Allow to set for 2 minutes.

Cut each Quesadilla into 3 slices and serve with Avocado Mayo for dipping. Avocado Quesadillas
