Did you know that an average restaurant quesadilla packs 1,000 calories!We gave this classic Mexican dish a skinny makeover. Spicy arugula and creamy avocado blends beautifully with the creamy aromatic cheese. For a crunchy & sweet element, substitute the avocado with a sliced Gala apple.
1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
3 (100-calorie) whole grain tortillas
3 ounces of Brie Cheese, rind removed and sliced
½ avocado, sliced
3 cups baby arugula
Nonfat plain greek yogurt (optional for dipping)
- Stir mustard and cider in a small bowl.
- Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spread each tortilla with 1 ½ teaspoons of mustard mixture. Place tortilla in pan and arrange 1/3 of cheese slices over half of tortilla. When cheese melts, arrange 1/3 of avocado slices over cheese and top with 1 cup arugula.
- Fold tortilla in half and cook 2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove from pan.
- Repeat procedure twice with remaining 2 tortillas. Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges. Serve with Greek yogurt as dip.
