Grande Chicken Quesadillas

Two large flour tortillas stuffed full of grilled chicken, melted cheese, crisp bacon, fresh red salsa and a smidgen of chipotle sauce. What a great combo right? Well, this is only what is INSIDE the tortilla. After crisping up the tortilla in a skillet, we now tower on the flavors over the top!
See the inside? Chunks of goodness and such a fun playing field!
The topping includes shredded lettuce, a large dollop of sour cream, sprinkle chopped green onions over all then whip out the salsa and crumbled bacon (again); of course we have cilantro floating through inside and out. Take a bite.
You hear the crunch first then a flood of wonderful flavors all with a touch of melted cheese, sour cream and salsa. The small pieces of freshly crispied bacon is hinted in every crunch.

Grande Chicken Quesadilla
(Makes enough for (1) so multiply the ingredients according to how many you are feeding)
***NOTE*** I had a rotisserie chicken to use, which is perfect for this.
2 (12-inch) flour tortillas
1 T. vegetable oil
2 T. chipotle sauce
4 ounces grilled chicken breast, sliced
QUESA FILLING (Use as desired)
Shredded Jack and Cheddar cheeses
Diced jalapeno pepper
Diced tomato
Diced onion
Minced cilantro
Crumbled bacon (Throw a few slices of thick cut bacon in the oven at 350 degrees for 6 min. per side; set on paper towels to absorb grease and thin slice or crumble.)
Shredded lettuce
Sour Cream
Chopped Green Onion
Crumbled bacon
A little more chopped Cilantro
Brush one side of each tortilla with oil.
Place one tortilla, oiled side down, on a work surface. Spread the chipotle sauce over the tortilla.
Spread the chicken evenly on top of the sauce on the tortilla.
Evenly spread the quesa filling over the chicken. Cover with the other tortilla, oiled side up.
Brown evenly on both sides in a nonstick pan until the filling is heat thoroughly.
Serve with lettuce, sour cream, green onion, and salsa as accompaniments. Sprinkle crumbled bacon on top.
Optional: Serve with guacamole.
