Chicken and Bean Quesadillas

Don't be fooled by what looks like a huge dollop of sour cream. It's actually greek yogurt! That and grain free tortillas are substitutions that make these quesadillas super clean.


Ingredients: (serves 4)
8 oz ground chicken
1 15 oz can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
4 6-to-8-inch tortillas -or- homemade grain free tortillas
1/2 cup shredded Mexican-style cheese blend, Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
olive oil cooking spray
1/2 tsp chile powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 tbsp unsalted tomato paste
1 tbsp raw honey

Directions:Mist a medium skillet with cooking spray and heat on medium. Add chicken, beans, chile powder and salt and saute until chicken is no longer pink and cooked through, about 6 minutes. Add tomato paste and honey abd cook for 1 more minut
On a work surface, place tortillas and divide chicken mixture amount them, spooning mixture onto one half of each tortilla. Top chicken mixture with cheese. Fold each tortilla over. Wipe out skillet, mist again and heat on medium high. Working in batches add quesadillas and cook until golden brown on both sides and cheese has melted, turning halfway, about 3 minutes per side. Serve with yogurt.
