Don’t dry the chard completely after rinsing – this extra water will help steam the greens, making them nice and tender in these colorful quesadillas.

Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onions and bell peppers until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, cumin and oregano.

Add chard to the skillet, cover and reduce heat to low. Steam chard until wilted, about 5 minutes. Uncover and cook until remaining liquid has evaporated, 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove chard mixture from skillet.

Combine cheeses in a small bowl. Set aside.

Place 1 tortilla in the skillet over medium heat. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheese, 1/4 of the chard mixture and 1/4 of the crumbled bacon; top with a second tortilla. Cook until golden brown and cheese is melted, about 2 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining tortillas, cheese, chard mixture and bacon. Cut into wedges and serve.
