Happy almost Cinco de Mayo! Looking for a quick n easy way to celebrate? Well here’s something that fits the bill…
I love the quesadilla burger at Applebees and it is one of my favorites when we go there for dinner. However, I’m happy to say you can replicate the taste at home at a fraction of the calories and still have room for your own home baked french fries!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 whole wheat quesadilla
- 1 slice alpine lace swiss cheese
- 1 Jennie-O turkey burger
- Salt and pepper
- Few spoonfuls of salsa
Here’s what to do:
- Grill burger into well done. Meanwhile, place tortilla in fry pan on low-heat. Add one slice of swiss cheese (or cheese of your choice). Cut prepared turkey burger in half and layer on one half of the tortilla. Top with 2 spoonfuls of salsa as desired (probably around ~2 Tbsp). Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Fold tortilla over and press until cheese appears to be melted.
This clocks in at 370 calories & it definitely hit the spot! Next time, I’ll probably add some veggies like sauteed spinach or onions & peppers. Give it a whirl, I promise you’ll enjoy it!
