Chicken and Corn Quesadillas

Cooking the quesadillas together on a baking sheet is much quicker than cooking them separately in a skillet. Adults and more adventurous young diners can jazz up their quesadillas with jalapeño peppers, chopped green onions, or cilantro.


6 servings (serving size: 4 quesadilla quarters, 2 tablespoons salsa, and 1 tablespoon sour cream)

6 (8-inch) fat-free flour tortillas
Cooking spray
2 cups chopped roasted skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 1/2 cups frozen whole-kernel corn, thawed and drained
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
3/4 cup bottled salsa
6 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream


Preheat oven to 400°.

Coat one side of tortillas with cooking spray; place, coated side down, on a large baking sheet. Place 1/3 cup chicken over half of each tortilla; top each with 1/4 cup corn and 1/3 cup cheese. Fold tortillas in half over filling, pressing firmly.

Bake at 400° for 10 minutes or until tortillas are crisp and cheese is melted. Cut each tortilla into quarters. Serve with salsa and sour cream.
