It's like a Mexican version of a BLT! You choose whether you want it smoky or zesty by the flavor of petite diced tomatoes you use. Crispy bacon and fresh basil add a new variation to the classic quesadilla. A perfect party finger food or quick snack.

Had fun making these with the grandkids. I used two sun-dried tomato basil tortillas and cutout the top one in the shape of a jack-o'-lantern for the fall season. The grands loved the spiciness of the tomatoes and the bacon was the perfect compliment. Read More

Delicious! I used Fire Roasted Rotel. I think next time we will try the spicier one. We also used Turkey Bacon just because I prefer it. Read More

My sons love this and so do I! I cook the bacon first and then cook the quesadillas in the bacon grease. Obviously this adds some calories but it's very tasty. I'm a slow cook and even I can make these quickly. Read More
