Hot-Smoked Salmon Quesadillas

    I had these tonight at a Mexican-themed CL supper club and they were great. They definitely didn't taste light and, I have to say, they aren't very light in my opinion. I would make these using fat-free tortillas to save a little on the fat count. I would also skip the avacado, tomato, sour cream mixture because it just didn't really appeal to me. All in all this really did taste great...just a little high in calories and fat and carbs for my liking.

    This recipe is super delicious, really out of this world. I usually serve with classic guacamole instead of the avocado/sour cream mixture. But a few words of caution: the "serving size" for this is 1/2 a quesadilla, so if you eat a whole one, it's almost 900 calories (not exactly light). Furthermore, you WILL need more cheese (i.e., more calories) if you want the two sides to stick together--otherwise the whole thing falls apart and makes a mess. The salmon mixture is SO tasty before you add the calories from the tortillas and cheese that I've been trying to come up with a more healthy way to serve it.

    The quesadillas were great, but I didn't like the avocado salsa. I ate my leftovers with guacamole and it was MUCH better.
