Lite Chicken Quesadilla Recipe

Chicken Quesadilla

I could eat Mexican food 5 days a week. This is a quick and easy lite chicken quesadilla recipe because you’re going to use chicken that is already cooked and lower fat ingredients along with whole wheat tortillas. I always make extra so I can take the leftovers for lunch. You might want to, also. 


  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion – chopped
  • 1 jalapeno – chopped or sliced
  • 1 small can of green chiles
  • 1 bag of precooked Southwest seasoned chicken strips.
  • 1 tsp Cumin (taste after mixing to see if more is needed)
  • 1 bag of shredded reduced fat Mexican blend cheese
  • 1 bag of whole wheat flour tortillas
