BBQ Chicken Bacon Swiss Quesadillas ~ Big name for a simple, easy, and quick dish, layered with pico de gallo, bacon, smoked Swiss cheese, avocado, and BBQ chicken between two flour tortillas ~ The Complete Savorist About a month ago I was out running errands.  I was child-free and trying to complete 6 months of errands in one afternoon.  I had to have lunch on the run and decided to stop at Carl’s Jr.  I had no idea what to get. Their Western Bacon Cheeseburger is my favorite thing they have. Probably more for nostalgia than for any other reason now.  But a sign in the window caught my eye and well, that was effective advertising.  I went ahead and ordered their bbq chicken quesadilla.   After the first bite I wish I ordered the burger.  There was no bbq flavor to be found.  Chicken dry.  Cheese scant.  I was disappointed to say the least.

I knew I could make a version of this and it would, hands down, be vastly superior (slightly vain on my part, I know.)  When I finally got around to making this, turns out I was right.  There was very little cooking involved to make this.  My beloved grandmother is visiting and we’d been out shopping for several hours and I wanted something delicious yet fast.

We ran by the market and picked up rotisserie chicken, avocado, and sour cream (along with paper towels, tp, tissue, and Swedish fish for the little girl-just in case you were wondering.) Once home, the prep took longer than the cooking, but the prep was well worth it.  The quesadilla is a meal.  No side dishes were needed.  I have posted several recipes with smoked Swiss…I still have so much of it, so that is what I used, but regular ole Swiss would work just fine, as would cheddar, Colby Jack or Monterey Jack.
