Mexican Fiesta

Tonight's menu included two more Hungry Girl recipes: "Just Fondue It" and "Cheesy Beefy Quesadillas." The quesadillas were very yummy, and the cheese dip was good too. I would definitely recommend these, especially the quesadillas!:

Cheesy Beefy Quesadillas

  • 2 large La Tortilla Factory Smart & Delicious Low Carb/High Fiber tortillas
  • 2/3 cup frozen ground-beef-style soy crumbles (like the ones by Boca and Morningstar Farms)
  • 1/2 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
  • One wedge The Laughing Cow Light Original Swiss cheese
  • 2 tbsp. fat-free sour cream
  • 1 tbsp. chopped scallions
  • 1/2 tsp. dry taco seasoning mix
  • Optional: additional fat-free sour cream, for dipping
  1. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine soy crumbles, cheddar cheese, scallions, sour cream, and seasoning mix, stirring thoroughly. Microwave for 1 minute, stir again, and set aside.
  2. Lay tortillas flat and spread cheese wedge evenly over one half of each.
  3. Bring a medium-large pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat, and lay one of the tortillas in it with the cheesy side up, and cook for about 30 seconds. Top the cheesy tortilla half with half of the 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.
  4. Repeat for other quesadilla.
  5. Serve with sour cream for dipping, if you like. Enjoy!

I couldn't find the aforementioned if you can't, maybe try and find another low fat and/or low carb tortilla.

  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic
  • dash salt
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tbs plain light soymilk
