Bacon and Blue Cheese Grilled Quesadillas

1 pound bacon, cooked crisp and chopped
6 flour tortillas (10-inch)
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 cup Blue cheese, crumbled
3 tomatoes, each one cut into 4 slices (12 slices total)
2 avocados, peeled, pitted and sliced into 12 slices
1/2 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped

Avocado Mayo:
3 avocados, diced
2 cups mayo
Juice of 2 limes
1/4 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Salt to taste

Heat grill while preparing Avocado Mayo. In a blender combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. Set aside.

On a medium grill lay out 6 flour tortillas (you can work with one at a time if you like or if space is limited on your grill) Divided evenly, on one side of the tortilla and in this order, top each with mozzarella cheese, bacon, blue cheese, tomato slices, avocado slices and parsley. Fold empty side of tortilla over the topping side. Grill just a couple of minutes until cheese is melted. This will cook fast. Carefully flip each Quesadilla with a spatula and tongs. Cook an additional 2 minutes. Remove from grill. Allow to set for 2 minutes. Cut each Quesadilla into 3 slices and serve with Avocado Mayo for dipping.
