Looking for the All-American Quesadilla? Let’s get patriotic, stop counting calories, upgrade that coke to a Big Gulp and do this!

Zesty Ranch BBQ Chicken Quesadilla from GirlCarnivore.com

There is nothing healthy about a quesadilla. Essentially, I slimmed the carbs out of the way and shoved more cheese into an over-glorified pressed sandwich. Then I googled everything America loves and shoved bacon, ranch, and chicken in there too – a winning combination clogging the arteries and topping pizzas in an ongoing trend nationwide.

And you know what, I even put a little avocado on there for you health-conscious types looking to slim your waistline with good-for-you fats. All in all, it was pretty glorious. So, get patriotic, stop counting calories, upgrade that coke to a Big Gulp and let’s do this.

One glorious bite at a time.

  1. You’re speakin’ my language here. (Anything that starts with “there’s nothing healthy about…” is my kinda thing.)

  2. That looks so much better than the sad sandwich I have packed to take with me to work for dinner tonight. Do you deliver? Also, I enjoy the gif. I have been meaning to try them out myself but always forget to take the photos for it.

  3. That looks amazing and we will certainly be making that. Love quick and easy meals for during the week!
