Cheesy Chicken Quesadillas by Jessica Mack



2 pre-cooked sliced chicken breasts

1 tbsp lime juice

1/4 cup (60 ml) extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp garlic powder

Sea salt

Black pepper

1 can black beans (drained)

1 tsp lime juice

1 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp sea salt

1 cup shredded low-fat Mexican cheese

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

8 whole-wheat tortillas

Chopped avocado, optional



Place chicken in a large bowl. Add the lime juice, olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper and toss until the chicken is well coated. Allow chicken to marinate while preparing the remainder of the dish.


Pour beans, lime juice, garlic powder and salt into the food processor then process until smooth. Toss cheeses, lime juice and cilantro in large bowl.


Remove chicken from marinade and shred.


Place tortillas on a flat work surface. Spread a thin layer of bean mixture on each tortilla, sprinkle with cheese and top with shredded chicken. Place a second tortilla on top to complete the quesadilla.


Microwave quesadillas for 50-60 seconds. Remove quesadillas from microwave and garnish with avocado.
