Chicken Quesadillas (George Foreman Grill)

This is a light and easy version of chicken quesadillas that you can grill on your George Foreman grill, if you have one. If you don't have an indoor grill, a fry pan will work just fine.

Recipe Ingredients

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

1 1/2 cups chopped green bell pepper

1 cup minced purple onion

2 teaspoons cumin

2 cups cooked chicken breast

1 (14.5 ounce) can no salt added diced tomatoes, drained

1/4 cup minced fresh cilantro

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

8 (8-inch) fat-free flour tortillas

3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat Monterey jack cheese

Butter flavored cooking spray

Fresh cilantro sprigs (optional)


Place oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add chopped pepper and onion; cook 3 minutes, stirring often. Add cumin, and cook 1 minute, stirring often. Add chicken and tomato; cook 3 minutes, stirring often. Stir in minced cilantro, salt, and ground pepper.

Place about 1/2 cup chicken mixture on half of each tortilla. Sprinkle cheese evenly over turkey mixture on tortillas; fold tortillas in half.

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot. Add 2 filled tortillas; cook 30 seconds on each side or until lightly browned. Set aside, and keep warm.
