Quesdaillas aren't usually thought of as healthy, but with reduced fat cheese, low carb tortillas, avocado, and chicken a quesadilla can be a pretty complete meal.
1 green onion (aka scallion)
1 cup shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese
4 low carb tortillas
Pam or other cooking spray
Optional: Cilantro, Fat Free Sour Cream, Salsa
Top one tortilla with shredded cheese, shredded chicken, diced avocado, and sliced green onion, and more cheese. Spray a pan or skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Carefully place tortilla with toppings in the pre-heated pan. Top with another tortilla. Cook over medium heat for three minutes (or until the bottom tortilla is starting to turn golden brown. Carefully flip with a spatula and cook for another three minutes to brown the other tortilla. Remove from pan and allow to cook for a minute or two before cutting. I like to use a pizza cutter to slice the quesadilla up, but a regular knife will work just fine. Serve with your favorite salsa and/or fat free sour cream. You can also garnish with a bit of cilantro if you're feeling fancy ;)

- To make this even more filling you can add black beans.
-If you have issues with dairy like I do I recommend Kaas Soy Pepper Jack...it actually melts like real cheese!
