Smokey Grilled Chicken Quesidillas

Updated on September 29, 2014

Sweet Grilled Pineapple Gives This Mexican Dish an Island Flare

I love cooking on my grill outside. Living in Orlando I can cook outdoors all year around. Food taste delicious when it has that smokey flavor and the grill marks always make the food look more appetizing. This recipe is a little sweet with a slight flavor of island spices and has become one of our families favorite quesidilla recipes.

This flavorful Quesidilla combines grilled chicken brushed with Slow Cooker BBQ Sauce , grilled pineapple, smokey bacon and gooey melted MontereyJack cheese. A sweet savory slightly spicy flavor everyone will enjoy.
