Healthy Chicken Quesadillas

Looking for a lighter version of this favorite Mexican recipe? Here is a great recipe that has all of that great quesadilla flavor with a lot less fat than the traditional version. Try them, they are great!

2 tablespoons chicken broth
1/4 cup chopped onions
1 small minced garlic clove
1/4 cup chopped bell peppers
2 minced chile peppers (to taste)
3 chopped plum tomatoes
nonstick cooking spray
8 flour tortillas
1 cup shredded low fat cheddar cheese
11/2 cups cooked chicken
Fat free sour cream

In a medium heavy skillet sauté the onions, garlic, and peppers in the 2 tablespoons chicken broth until soft. Add the chile peppers and tomatoes and simmer for a few minutes more until the liquid has evaporated. Add the chicken and stir well to combine. Spray a cold skillet with the nonstick spray and heat over medium heat. Place a tortilla in the pan and sprinkle with 1/8 cup cheese. Add about a quarter of the chicken mixture and top with another 1/8 cup cheese. Cover with another tortilla and cook for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Flip the quesadilla over and cook for an additional two minutes. Remove from the heat and cut into wedges. Keep warm while frying the remaining quesadillas. Serve with salsa and fat free sour cream.

Makes 4 Servings.
