Happy Cinco de Mayo! If you are not celebrating with Bacon, you are not celebrating at all! Get into the Cinco de Mayo spirit with these AMAZING Bacon Weave Chicken & Cheese Quesadillas!
Start off by cooking two large bacon weave squares and then placing a bowl over each one and tracing around it with a knife to create a circle. The trick with these bacon weaves is to cook them to the point where the bacon sticks together and is able to be cut, but you don’t want to cook it too much or when you add your quesadilla ingredients and finish cooking it your bacon will burn.
The cooking time will vary depending on which type of bacon you use and how thick it is, but for my original two bacon weaves I just cooked them in the oven at 400° for about 15 minutes. Then, after cutting them into circles, I added some chicken and cheese to them and fried my Bacon Weave Quesadilla in a pan on my stove for about five minutes. Completing my meal was a bowl of fresh homemade guacamole (add cooked chopped Bacon to your guac for even more bacon-ey goodness!).
