Recipe Share: Beefy Cheesy Quesadillas

These yummy quesadillas are very good AND very good for you!
  • 1 large tortilla (I used La Banderita Xtreme Fiber - they only have 72 calories per tortilla)
  • 1/3 cup frozen, Boca ground crumbles
  • 1/4 cup fat-free shredded cheese (I don't use fat-free cheese because it's weird, but using regular cheese didn't really increase the calories that much at all!)
  • One-half wedge The Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss cheese
  • 1 tbsp. fat-free sour cream
  • 1/4 tsp. dry taco seasoning mix


  • In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine soy crumbles, cheddar cheese, sour cream, and seasoning mix, stirring thoroughly. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir again, and set aside.
  • Lay tortilla flat and spread cheese wedge evenly over one half.Bring a medium-large pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat, and lay tortilla in it with the cheesy side up. Cook for about 30 seconds.
  • Top the cheesy tortilla half with soy crumble mixture.Using a spatula, carefully fold the plain tortilla half over the other half, pressing down with the spatula to seal. Cook for about 1 minute, until slightly toasted on the bottom.Flip and continue to cook for about 1 minute, until both sides are toasted.
  • Remove from heat and cut into four triangles. Serve with sour cream for dipping, if you like. Enjoy!
