Spicy Chicken & Avocado Quesadilla

  A little heat is a good thing right? When it came to clean eating the last thing I wanted to do is eat boring chicken breast for dinner every night. This recipe along with many other clean recipes on this blog prove that you can eat healthy and still have flavor. For portion control I will eat half of one of these for a serving along side a veggie. Enjoy!!
 

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup shredded chicken
  • 1/3 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder (this is spicy)
  • 1/4 avocado cubed
  • 1/3 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 2 medium flour tortillas (whole wheat)
  • 1/4 cup diced tomatoes
  • Nonstick olive oil

Directions:

  1. Place a pan on the stove over medium heat and melt 1 tablespoon olive oil. While the olive oil warms up put together the quesadilla.
  2. In a bowl mix together chicken, barbecue sauce and chipotle chili powder.
  3. Lay out on whole wheat tortilla and spread with avocado, chicken mixture, tomatoes, cheese and top with other flour tortilla.
  4. Carefully pick up the quesadilla and place into the pan with the melted olive oil.
  5. Cook until browned on the bottom and carefully flip over to cook the other side. If you need more oil in the pan, simply add another tablespoon of butter.
  6. Once browned on both sides remove from the pan and let cool for 1 minute before cutting
