Low-Carb Quesadilla

It's time for another tasty Mexican recipe! This time we made delicious low-carb quesadillas. Quesadillas are to Mexican cuisine what grilled sandwiches are to us. These Mexican sandwiches are not made with bread but with tortillas.

The tortillas are filled with cheese and baked in a frying pan or grill. We made our quesadilla with special low-carb tortillas from Atkins and filled with seasoned chicken, bell pepper and cheese. These quesadillas are crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside.

By using low-carb wraps instead of normal tortillas, half a quesadilla contains only 8.0 g of carbohydrates! Tips: These quesadillas are delicious to eat as an easy lunch or evening meal. You can serve it with a salad or bowl of soup. Not a fan of chicken? You can also omit the chicken or replace it with ground beef or a vegetarian alternative.

I hope you like it! Let us know how it tasted by posting a comment at the bottom of the page.

Ingredients

150 gr chicken cubes

2 tbsp olive oil

1/2 tbsp taco seasoning

1/4 red bell pepper

1/2 onion

2 low carb wraps

50 gr grated cheddar or Mexican cheese

Optional: sour cream or salsa

Preparation method

Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the chicken cubes to the pan and fry them for about 5 minutes while stirring. Meanwhile, cut the onion and bell pepper into small pieces. When the chicken is cooked, add the chopped onion, bell pepper and taco seasoning to the pan and cook for 3 to 5 minutes.

Then scoop the contents of the pan into a bowl and clean the pan. Now take the wraps and grease one side of each wrap with a little olive oil. Place a wrap oil side down on a board and sprinkle half of the grated cheese on top of the wrap.

Then spoon the chicken filling onto the wrap and sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. Finally, place the other tortilla oil side up on top of the filled wrap. Heat the skillet over medium heat and add the filled quesadilla to the skillet.

Put the lid on the pan and cook the quesadilla for 2-4 minutes. Then carefully flip the quesadilla with a spatula or cheese slicer and cook for a further 2 minutes.

After baking, remove the quesadilla from the pan and cut into 4 pieces. Divide the 4 pieces between 2 plates and serve with salsa or sour cream if desired. Enjoy your meal!
