Ranch Chicken Quesadillas Tips

Chicken, bacon and cheese is always a winning formula! When assembling the quesadillas, sprinkle on the crumbled cooked bacon at the same time you add the shredded cheese. Find out the best bacon brands our tasting panel recommends.

Is a quesadilla unhealthy?

Quesadillas aren’t necessarily unhealthy—it depends a lot on what you put in them. Some typical quesadilla fixings, like cheese, tend to be high in sodium, so quesadillas may contain more salt than you realized. Try these sweet potato-black bean quesadillas, which prove you can cook healthy recipes with five ingredients or less.
