BBQ Chicken, Apple, Bacon and Cheddar Quesadillas

BBQ Chicken, Apple, Bacon and Cheddar Quesadillas
After making the apple, bacon and cheddar sticky buns earlier this week the flavour combination has been on my mind and I could not resist using it again, this time in some quesadillas. Even with the apple, bacon and cheddar the quesadillas felt like they still needed something and BBQ chicken was the perfect solution, adding a sweet heat along with a hint of smokiness. There is just something magical about this combination of sweet juicy apples, melted cheddar cheese, smoky bacon and spicy BBQ chicken and I will definitely be enjoying a few more of these quesadillas over the next few weeks this fall!

That caramelized cheese that drips out of the quesadillas is one of the best parts!

Can't wait to try this version of your quesadillas, Kevin! Some grade 10 students and I made your Lime Fajita Quesadillas this week, and they were SO good! No time for a photo - they were gone so fast!
