Healthy Chicken Quesadillas
Last night my bride was working out of town and had dinner with the eldest offspring, while the princess ate at church before her Spring Play rehearsal. This left me home alone with leftovers in the fridge. What to do? What to do?
I hadn't taken the leftover Chicken Burrito Mix to school for lunch yesterday, so I thought I might do something with that. Although the burritos were good, I didn't want another one for supper. I decided to make a quesadilla.
In a skillet I heated the leftover mix, adding just a bit more salsa as it seemed a little drier.
Then I sprayed my large skillet with non-stick spray and heated it to medium. I placed my tortilla in the skillet and put a bit of the mixture on to one side of the tortilla. I then added a 1/4 cup of fat free shredded cheese and a slice of Borden's Fat Free Pepperjack cheese. Then I folded the other half over the mix and pressed it with the spatula.
After a minute or so on this side, I flipped it over to finish "browning" the other side.
I still had some leftover lettuce and diced tomatoes too! I sliced an avocado to go with it! YUMMERS!
All of this was right around 430 calories. (That is with a 100+ from the avocado too!)
I would have another tonight, but since it's my 26th wedding anniversary .... I think we may have plans. I don't know how I've been married 26 years!! My wife only looks 28!
