Quesadillas...Your WayQuesadillas...Your Way
Simply fill these with cheese for a quick snack or with vegetables and meat for a meal
Whole wheat tortillas (or white if ww is too much for your family at this point)
Choose any of these that you like:
- Cooked chicken, cut in small pieces
- Drained canned black beans
- Grated low fat cheese
- Chopped green onions
- Mild pepper rings
- Chopped tomato
- Serve with:
- Low fat sour cream
If you want to make a lot at one time, brush the tops and bottoms of the quesadillas once they have been assembled with a small amount of oil. Place folded quesadillas on a cookie sheet and bake at 450˚ 8-10 minutes on each side. Cool on a wire rack a few minutes before slicing into smaller triangles.
If you like, have children assemble their own quesadilla. These are good cold and can be packed in lunches. For a dinner, serve with sliced cucumbers and vinegar and sliced apples.
*For chicken, make a few extra pieces of chicken for dinner a night or two before. Or if time is tighter than money, buy pre-cooked chicken strips.
