I just made these deliciously healthy quesadillas for dinner, but I will also serve them on Super Bowl Sunday. I used coconut oil, but a little real butter would work well too. I also share some links to other healthy Super Bowl snacks below. What are you making for the big game…is it healthy?
Healthy Chicken Quesadillas
four all natural chicken breasts fully cooked
whole wheat flour tortillas (you can also use corn if you want to avoid the flour)
low-fat monterey jack cheese
fresh salsa from the deli (or you can make your own)
Place tortillas one at a time in a skillet with 1 tbs. coconut oil. Saute until slightly brown and crisp. Take each tortilla out and place another on the skillet, occasionally adding a little more coconut oil. On each tortilla spread a small layer of each of the ingredients in the following order: refried beans, chicken, salsa, cheese. As the tortillas come off the skillet, layer them and then put another sauteed tortilla on top of each. Place the quesadillas on cooking tray and place in a 400 degree oven for five minutes. Take out tortillas and cut in a pie style with a pizza roller. Serve warm with fresh salsa.
