Low Carb Chicken Quesadillas
To continue my list of Mexican favorites slimmed down I will now share my recipe for Low Carb Chicken Quesadillas. The recipe is more or less the same as my Low Carb Chicken Fajitas recipe you can find here on MySkinnyPlate.
If you have a waffle maker or a Panini press I find using those appliances a lot easier than a cast iron or basic frying pan. This will ensure nothing spills out of your tortilla when flipping, since the appliances I just mentioned cook on both sides at the same time.
You probably read the above paragraph and thought,"she said tortilla, we can't eat tortillas on a low carb diet!" This is correct, but as I mentioned on the chicken fajita page I found an awesome, tasty low carb tortilla alternative Mama Lupe Low Carb Tortillas that only has 3 net impact carbs. Grab a towel the drool is running down your chin. 😉
Here we go...
Use your favorite seasonings just beware of hidden carbs. I use cumin, cayenne pepper, and dash of chili powder...remember I like my food hot so do what is comfortable for your taste buds.
Once your quesadilla is ready place it on a plate and put your 2 Tbsp Sour cream on the side along with your 2 Tbsp of salsa and enjoy! 🙂
I like to use cute little cups for the sour cream & salsa to make dipping much easier. 😉 Pssst. If you're invited to go to a Mexican restaurant and don't want to steer away from your dietary goals then bring your own low carb tortillas and tell the waiter you have special dietary needs. I tried this at chili's because I absolutely love their skillet fajita mix (I'm trying to crack the ingredients and I will update on my Low Carb Chicken Fajitas page. Until then, my recipe will suffice for my at home cravings.
