Bacon Quesadillas

It's been a while since I shared with y'all some evidence of my awesome kitchen skills, so I thought I would share with you what I made the kids for lunch today, as if you care.
{Really, I'm just bored and feel like writing but too lazy to come up with a poem or short story or funny little snippet about my life. Deal with it}

Whenever I make these quesadillas, both the kids get all kinds of lovey on me, and are all like "Oh Mommy, you're just THE BEST mommy in the whole history of mommies! We love you, and we TOTALLY promise never to ever be disobedient again, and we will keep our room clean, and totally never fight if you will let us have some of those awesome-sauce quesadillas!"

Ok, so maybe they don't go quite that far, but it's sure close.

In short, these things kick ass.

What You Need:

6 soft taco size flour tortillas (I like this size, cuz everyone can have their little personal-pan-style quesadillas, but obviously you can use whatever size you want.
1 green bell pepper
1 carton of presliced mushrooms, washed and drained
Half pound bacon, uncooked and chopped
Shredded cheese of your choosing

Preheat your oven to 400 if you like your shit nice and crispy on the outside, like we do. 350 if you like 'em softer. 
Spray your skillet with Pam, or a nonstick spray of your choosing, unless {unlike me} that nifty Teflon coating on your pans hasn't totally worn off yet. 
Heat your pan to medium-high, and toss in the bacon. Cook until it's HALFWAY done, NOT all the way done
While it's cooking, dice your bell pepper.
Throw in the bell pepper and a spoon full of minced garlic.
Simmer until the bell pepper just starts to get soft and the bacon is cooked through, but not crispy yet.
Turn your heat down to medium, add a spoonfull of butter, and throw in the shrooms.
Sautee that shit until the shrooms are brown and soft and flavorfull as fuck. Mmmmm.
Toss this mixture in a bowl and set aside.
Throw a tortilla into your nicely greased and seasons, warm skillet, and spread it around for a few seconds until it's hot and a little brown on the outside. 
Do this with all six of your tortillas, on one side only.
Place 3 tortillas, brown side down on a nonstick cookie sheet.
Top with cheese, skillet mixture, and more cheese.
Top with another tortilla, obviously, brown side up.
Bake in the oven for 7 minutes at 400, or 10 minutes at 350.
Cut up into triangles and serve with sour cream or Ranch.
{Ranch sounds weird, but that shit is actually super good}
Enjoy folks!
