Health Tip: Butter adds richness to these quesadillas, but it’s not essential. Cook the eggs in a few spritzes of cooking spray and don’t butter the tortillas. You’ll decrease the fat by about one-third.

The only modifications I made to this recipe was that I added onions and green peppers to the egg mixture. I know that salsa have these two ingredients in them, but we like onions/peppers cooked in with the eggs. I also added sliced avocado. Yummy. I cooked these on my panini press. Easy.
