BLT Quesadillas with Avocado Mayo

My boss teases me every time I suggest running a lunch special with bacon. I can hear him now, “Bacon, bacon and more bacon!” ๐Ÿ˜‰ In reality, at home I only buy regular bacon, maybe once a year to use as a quick meal like in this BLT Quesadilla. You can use turkey bacon or tofu if you like!

BLT Quesadilla with Avocado Mayo

BLT with Avocados! So good together!


1/2 lb bacon, cooked (about 8 slices)
4 tortillas, whole wheat
1/2 cup tomatoes, diced
1 cup lettuce, shredded
2 ounces cheddar cheese or reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded

Avocado Mayo

1/2 each avocados, seeded, peeled and mashed (I just mash it with a fork, I like it a little chunky)
1/4 cup mayonnaise, reduced calorie
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

1. Spread Avocado mayo on your tortilla. I like a lot!

2. Heat Tortilla in the skillet just until warm. Add cheese, bacon, tomato and lettuce.

3. When cheese starts to melt, fold tortilla in half. Brown on both sides.

4. Serve with non-fat sour cream (you have to save calories somewhere!) and your favorite salsa!

    Oh, that is lovely! I often do something similar. I love tortillas and avocado-something on it. Some cheese would do good as well (only because I am a cheese lover)!

      Hi Chris, Thanks for stopping by! I did include a little cheddar (fat-free on mine) but the more cheese the merrier! :0

      Hi Dorothy! I like a little something moist like an aioli or mayo on the inside of the tortilla!
