  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add onion; cook and stir onions until softened about 5 minutes. Stir in bacon pieces and brown sugar, and cook until bacon pieces are crisp. Remove from skillet.
  2. Spread 1/4 cup barbecue sauce on one tortilla. Sprinkle with 1/4 of the bacon and onion mixture, 1 tablespoon cilantro, and 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese. Top with a tortilla.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon olive oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Place the uncooked quesadilla in the skillet. Cook on one side until browned and crisp, about 3 minutes. Flip, and cook on the other side until the cheese is completely melted, about 2 minutes more. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to cool. Repeat with remaining six tortillas. Slice into quarters using a sharp knife or kitchen scissors when cool enough to handle.

These were a hit! I will definitely make them again. We were fighting over the last pieces!

I made this last night for a halloween party. It was the first thing to go. Everyone loved it. I left out the cilantro because 1) I don't like it and 2) I didn't have it on hand. But it was ...

Great recipe! Cooked as per the directions but just used the BBQ sauce to taste. Going to try these again with some different fillings but the cilantro and BBQ is an awesome combo.
