The great thing about quesadilla's, there are no rules. This is a reduced fat/sodium version using leftovers, just doesn't get any better than that.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
This is the rice recipe I used, minus the butter and pecans, and added some smoke paprika and cumin. I used about 1 tbl. of olive oil instead of the butter. Long grain and wild rice
NOTE: for added flavor cook in chicken or beef stock. Use homemade stock to keep the sodium low.

Heat rice, chicken and salsa together in pan. Remove, spray one side of corn tortilla with spray oil, place that side down. Sprinkle with a little cheese, then add the chicken mixture, then a little more cheese. Spray one more tortilla with spray oil, and place that side UP. Heat for about 1-2 min. depending on heat your cooking on, flip and heat other side. Cheese will melt and tortilla will brown a little.
