For this recipe, I basically decided to toss 4 of my favorite things in between a couple of tortillas and make the most bomb.com quesadilla ever!

The recipe all began when I went to survey my refrigerator before heading out of town. I’m flying to Phoenix tomorrow to visit my besties and meet up with my brother who’s in town for a conference from Washington DC.

After surveying the current fridge situation, I knew that I needed to use chicken breasts and bacon in a recipe before heading out of town.

I swooped by the grocery store to get some inspiration on what I wanted to make with the chicken and bacon already in the fridge. I saw a bag of peaches and started thinking about the Grilled Peach Balsamic BBQ Chicken I made a few weeks back.

That got me thinking, grilled peaches, BBQ chicken and crispy bacon, yes! I then turned the corner and saw tortillas, and boom, I decided to turn this combination into a scrumptious quesadilla!

Instead of traditional cheddar cheese, I used Cabot Habanero Cheddar (a personal fav!) to add a little spice to the quesadilla and balance out the sweetness of the peaches and BBQ sauce.

Now you might be asking, “Whitney, how do I flip this giant quesadilla without losing all of the delicious filling?” The best answer is, very carefully, haha!

But seriously, I used a spatula on one side and then my hand on the other side to help it flip over without spilling out all of the goodness!

Once it’s carefully flipped and golden brown on both sides, slice it into halves, quarters or triangles, whatever your little heart desires! Drizzle with the additional ¼ cup BBQ sauce, or serve the sauce on the side for dipping!
