Cheesy Chicken, Bacon, and Avocado Quesadillas

Yum
This was my first recipe using avocado that I have made - short of the not-all-the-way ripe avocado I used, I really enjoyed this and I think avocado is something I will continue to eat :) The closest I had been to tasting avocado before was those Guacamole Doritos they used to make. YUM!

Do me a favor really quick...go google "chocolate chip lava cookies" - did you do it? Did you make it back here? Or did that put you in a food coma? This is just one reason to subscribe to Kevin & Amanda. Not to mention all the cute pics of their pups and Amanda does a lot of very helpful blog tutorials. PLUS free fonts! I adore the fonts from their site! Ahhh!

    Your kidding right? The first time you've ever had avocados? I am so glad you liked them, I love them, probably a bit too much. Love your use of them in these quesadillas, looks delish.
