Use 6-inch tortillas (about 130 calories each) for the perfect one-serving quesadilla
Add-Ins: 2 ounces cooked chicken breast & 2 tablespoons sliced, pickled jalapenos
Toppings: 2 tablespoons salsa mixed with 2 tablespoons diced fresh pineapple
Add-Ins: 2 tablespoons each corn kernels (fresh or frozen) & diced tomato
Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Top tortilla with cheese and remaining ingredients, fold in half. Spray skillet with nonstick spray. Place folded tortilla in pan and cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side until cheese is melted and tortilla is golden. Slice and serve.
