I'll take two recipes for the win!

Low Carb Chicken and Black Bean Quesadilla

I've been trying to find an alternative to Moe's Southwest Grill JC Quesadilla, which is $6.00 and over 700 calories! I've hit a home run here, folks!

1 Low Carb Multigrain Tortilla
1 Large Chicken Breast Tenderloin
1/4 Cup Bush's Seasoned Black Beans
1/2 Cup Shredded Cheddar
1/2 TBSP Mild Taco Seasoning
1/4 Cup Chicken Broth

Combine taco seasoning and chicken broth in a skillet, add chicken strip and cook until no pink remains. Cut into smaller pieces. Throw beans in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. Lay torilla in a flat pan on low setting to warm. Sprinkle cheese on the tortilla, then chicken and black beans and fold over. When cheese is melted, remove from heat and cut into thirds.

This is obviously a recipe for one person. :) Just double, triple, etc. as necessary.

And I couldn't leave out the low fat no sugar added chocolate pie, even if it is a no-brainer.

1 Small Box Fat Free Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding
1 Small Container Sugar Free Cool Whip
2 Cups Milk (whatever you prefer...skim, whole, soy, doesn't matter)
1 Honey Maid Graham Cracker Crust

Make pudding according to directions on box and let set in the fridge for at least 10 minutes.
Pour into crust.
Top with Cool Whip.


The crust is only 6g sugar per serving, which makes it diabetic friendly. JUST DON'T EAT THE WHOLE PIE! Not that I did...just sayin'...SHARE! :)
