Recipe: Quick and Easy Chicken Quesadillas

What you need:

  • 1 cup of cooked shredded chicken
  • ¾ cup of grated cheese (cheddar or a Mexican blend is best)
  • ¼ cup fresh tomato salsa or chopped tomatoes
  • 4 whole wheat tortillas
  • Cooking spray

How to do it:

  1. In a bowl, combine the chicken, cheese and salsa/tomatoes. 
  2. Place two of the tortillas down on a flat surface.
  3. Scoop the chicken/cheese/salsa mixture onto the two tortillas, dividing evenly. Spread the mixture, but leave some room near the edges.
  4. Place the two remaining tortillas on top.
  5. Spray a large frying pan with cooking spray and place one of the quesadillas down. Cook over medium heat for two to three minutes. Flip and cook for an additional two minutes.
  6. Remove from the pan and slice into wedges.

A few tips to keep this recipe healthy:

  • If you absolutely must garnish with sour cream, use the fat free kind.
  • Use this meal as a way to get your veggies—add onions or peppers as part of the filling.
  • Top the quesadillas with sliced avocados or guacamole.
  • If you need a side to go with your meal, try black beans.
