Quesadillas are great as a meal, appetizer, and a hand-held party food, especially for the Super Bowl!  Prepare the filling ahead of time and make your kitchen-time more like a short time out from the game and fun.

If your guests like, try topping this with guacamole, sour cream, or salsa!

California Quesadillas Recipe

California Quesadillas Recipe


  • 2 large chicken breast halves
  • salt and pepper
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 lb bacon
  • 1 pkg large flour tortillas
  • 16 oz shredded Mexican or cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Rinse the chicken and place in a shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover with foil and bake for an hour, or until the chicken is tender and cooked throughout. Allow to cool.
  3. Increase the oven temperature to 425 degrees F. Bake the bacon on a cookie sheet or fry in a pan. When cool, crumble.
  4. Once the chicken is cool, shred it with two forks, running the tines between each other.
  5. Toss with the lime juice.
  6. Place a tortilla on a large baking sheet. Assemble the quesadillas by sprinkling half of the tortilla with the chicken, bacon, and cheese. Fold the tortilla in half and bake in a 425 degree F oven until the tortilla begins to crisp, about 5-7 minutes.
  7. Press the quesadilla slightly with your hand and cut into wedges.

    I made something like this before except I used fajita seasoning instead of lime, pepper, and salt.My husband loved it. This version sounds good though so I think I am going to have to try it.
