Nutritional Facts

1 quesadilla (prepared with reduced-fat cheese) equals 266 calories, 10 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 13 mg cholesterol, 514 mg sodium, 36 g carbohydrate, 2 g fiber, 11 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 2 starch, 2 fat, 1 vegetable.

Directions

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 31, 2012

My sister and I loved this recipe. The two of us ate almost the entire batch the first time we made it! I mix up the filling ahead of time so it's a quick meal when we are in a hurry.
