Jalapeno Popper Quesadillas

For all you jalapeno popper lovers - this is for you. I love poppers and grow my own peppers so I always have them on hand, but often don't won't to make a few just for me. Also, when entertaining, some of my friends are afraid to try the jalapeno because they think it is too hot. So ... Solution. Same flavors, same ingredients ... all in a quesadilla, lightly grilled, melted and golden brown. They really are very very good. Add a nice Mexican Tortilla soup or creamy Mexican Cheese soup or salad and serve these on the side and a perfect dinner. Or my favorite would be appetizers, or a game day party. Easy and quick. Now I have to admit, I will give you my portions, but by all means, add more jalapenos, more bacon or more cheese depending on your tastes. This is a very forgiving recipe and just is grilled; either on a outdoor grill, indoor grill, saute pan or even baked if you have none of the above options.
