Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry bacon in a pan until crisp. Remove, cool and crumble but be sure to save 1/2 Tbsp drippings.
  2. Add 1/2 tbsp of the bacon drippings to a skillet over medium heat and add the scallions and saute about 2-3 mins until softened.
  3. Add the chicken in a single layer and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Cook for about 5 mins or until chicken is golden and cooked through.
  5. Remove the chicken and scallions to a plate and rinse out the skillet.
  6. In the clean skillet, add 1/2 tbsp butter and put over medium heat.
  7. When the butter is bubbly, add a tortilla and swirl it around to get it buttery.
  8. Layer one side of the tortilla with chicken, bacon, avocado, and a little cheese.
  9. Use tongs or a spatula to flip the other half of the tortilla over and press down.
  10. Cook the tortilla for about 1-2 mins on each side or until golden brown and crispy.
  11. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas, adding a little more butter for each tortilla as needed.
