1. Grill chicken breasts beforehand. I seasoned mine with a seasoned garlic salt.

2. In a large skillet fry bacon until golden brown; remove bacon onto a paper towel to drain off excess grease; pour out all of the bacon grease into a bowl leaving about 1 TBSP in the frying pan.

3. To bacon grease, add 1 TBSP butter and melt on medium heat; add sliced mushrooms & shallots; sauté until golden; remove to a bowl.

4. In the same skillet, place flour tortilla in the butter/grease and layer your toppings on one half of the tortilla~ You need to be able to fold it in half.

  1. ½ of the cheese
  2. Chicken
  3. Bacon
  4. Mushroom & shallot mixture
  5. Tomatoes
  6. Jalapenos
  7. Remaining half of cheese

5. Once you have all your fillings, carefully using a spatula and fork, bring the empty side of the tortilla over the filling to make a half moon; fry for about another minute and flip.

6. Fry on the other side for about 1 to 2 minutes, or until golden.

7. Remove onto a plate and carefully open your quesadilla and add avocado and ranch dressing.

Serve with Pico De Guio  and sour cream if you like.
