Ingredients

  • 1 - 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 bottle Smoky Bacon BBQ Sauce from Tastefully Simple
  • 10 flour tortillas
  • 2 cups Mexican cheese
  • 1 Bacon Avocado Dip Mix from Tastefully Simple
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 5 TB butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 1/2 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1 avocado sliced

Instructions

  • Combine chicken breasts and bbq sauce in the bowl of your slow cooker. Place lid on top and cook for 3-4 hours on high, or 5 hours on low (you don't want to overcook it, keep an eye on it if you can). Shred chicken with two forks once it is cooked through.
  • To make Bacon Avocado Dip Mix, combine mix packet with sour cream and mayonnaise in a medium sized bowl. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • In a large skillet, melt 1/2 TB butter over medium high heat. Add a tortilla to the pan, and top with a sprinkling of cheese (about 1/4 cup) followed by a scoop of bbq chicken. Spread out evenly, then top with a little diced onion and cilantro (about 1 heaping TB each) and another 1/4 cup of cheese. Top with second tortilla.
  • When bottom tortilla is golden brown, carefully lift quesadilla with a spatula and add another 1/2 TB butter to the pan. All to melt then flip quesadilla over and cook the other side.
  • Repeat steps 3-4 to make remaining quesadillas.
  • Serve with salsa, remaining cilantro, and Bacon Avocado Dip. Enjoy!
