Recipe Notes

  • I used Mission Carb Balance Tortillas. If you use a larger tortilla, you may need more cheese and fixings.
  • Stove top directions: Place assembled quesadilla (assembled as directed above) in a 10-inch or larger non-stick skillet set over medium-low heat. Cook until bottom is starting to brown and cheese is melting. Flip and continue cooking until cheese is completely melted.
