Grilled Feta Quesadillas Recipe

This is a great appetizer, especially when having company over for a barbecue. I had something similar at a Memorial Day party and I tried to recreate the flavor with lower fat ingredients. -Jacqui Correa of Landing, New Jersey

"I'm not sure how the carbs were calculated, but I wouldn't consider these low carb. All the packages of 6" tortillas in our stores say 15gm of carbs per *tortilla*. Add in the few carbs found in cheese and then the carbs in the olives, etc...and these are pretty high in carbs."

"Very yummy with the feta cheese! In my haste, I forgot to add the diced pimentos, but they were still excellent. Guess I'll have to make them again!"
