Chicken Bacon and Avocado Quesadillas

Aaah...back from a great vacation visiting family in Baltimore, with day trips to Washington DC, Philadelphia, and Hershey!  Now I am back to cooking.  I love a good grilled chicken sandwich, and if you throw some cheese, bacon, and avocado, it's even better!  Why not throw all these things together in a quesadilla for a change?  These were very tasty, they will be made again :)

Chicken, Bacon, and Avocado Quesadillas

8 medium-sized flour tortillas
1 pound chicken breasts
Salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
8 strips of bacon, chopped
1 avocado, sliced
Lime juice
Shredded Monterey jack or pepperjack cheese
few dashes of hot sauce for each quesadilla

1. Fry bacon in a skillet over medium heat. Set bacon aside to drain on paper towels. Drain all but 1/2 tablespoon of drippings from the pan.

2. Season the chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder and add the chicken to the bacon drippings. Cook until chicken is golden brown and cooked through. Let chicken rest for 3 to 5 minutes, then dice very finely or shred. 

3. Slice avocado and sprinkle with lime juice to preserve color. Top four tortillas with cheese, chicken, bacon, hot sauce, and avocado. Sprinkle with more cheese and top with other four tortillas. Cook each quesadilla until browned and crispy.
