Preparation & Directions

  1. In medium bowl, stir chicken, 1/4 cup salsa and cilantro until well mixed. Spread 2 tablespoons beans over half of each tortilla. Top bean side of each tortilla with chicken mixture and cheese. Fold each tortilla in half over filling.

  2. Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Spray both sides of each quesadilla with cooking spray; place 2 quesadillas in skillet. Cover; cook 3 to 4 minutes, turning once, until filling is heated and tortillas are lightly browned. Repeat with remaining quesadillas. Cut into wedges. Serve with additional salsa and sour cream.

What is "Healthified"?
We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.

We really like the Mexican cheese blend, but you could use reduced-fat Cheddar or Monterey Jack instead.

These quesadillas are a great quick meal—serve them with a tossed salad or some fresh fruit for lunch or dinner.
