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.

How to Make Grilled chicken and rice corn quesadilla

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.
  2. This was the leftover chicken I used.

  3. And this is the red salsa that I used.
    Basic low sodium Red Salsa
  4. 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.
