Bacon, Avocado and Blue Cheese Quesadilla

   A happy new year to each and everyone of you! So hard for me to believe that it is 2013....where did 2012 go so quickly?!? It was quite an eventful year for us with experiencing the birth of our son and adjusting to the new life of parenthood and purchasing a business with husband's twin brother being the more memorable moments. 
   As I reflect back on the past year I am reminded of God's faithfulness and goodness to us in so many ways. I want to make a more deliberate effort this year to thank Him DAILY for all the ways he blesses us that so often I take for granted and remember no matter what my circumstance may be, there is always, ALWAYS something to be thankful for. So my word for the year is -GRATITUDE-.
   OK on to the post recipe...looking for a quick and easy lunch for one or two? Give these flavorful quesadillas a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Bacon, Avocado and Blue Cheese Quesadilla
4- 8" flour tortillas
sour cream
blue cheese crumbles
8 strips bacon, fried
1 avocado, sliced
fresh cilantro, chopped
mozzarella cheese, grated
Spread sour cream on all 4 tortillas. Sprinkle the blue cheese crumbles on two tortillas. Top with 4 strips of bacon and 1/2 avocado each. Sprinkle a small amount of  chopped fresh cilantro and mozzarella cheese over all. Top with remaining two tortillas. Heat a cast iron skillet with a tsp or so of oil. Place quesadillas in one at a time and fry until golden brown and flip. Continue frying until the other side of the tortilla is golden brown and the cheese is melted. Remove from skillet and cut into wedges. Garnish with sour cream and cilantro.
{Tomato would be wonderful on this as well, but I didn't have one so we went without.} 

Give thanks in all circumstances,
for this is God's will for you
in Christ Jesus.
~1 Thessalonians 5:18
