Chicken and Black Bean Quesadillas
makes 5 servings
1 lg chicken breast
1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 tbsp taco seasoning
Cook one large chicken breast and shred into small pieces. I cook mine in a pan with a little spray of non-fat cooking spray. Add the shredded chicken back to the pan, and add 1 tbsp of taco seasoning, 1/4 cup of water and the black beans (drained). Heat over low to medium heat and stir until combined and beans are heated throughout.
Great things to add to the base: 2/3 of a cup of frozen corn or 1 medium red pepper sliced.
I did an approximate calorie and fiber count for these babies - one quesadilla with 1/4 of low fat cheese, and they come in at 345 calories, and 16 grams of fiber! So delish, and so fulfilling. You can easily add more veggies to the mix, and stretch the servings even further. This is not only yummy and low cal, but it makes one large chicken breast last for at least 5 servings!
I especially like this recipe because I can cook the chicken and beans with the seasoning one night, and throw it in the fridge, and just whip up a quesadilla in about 10 minutes on a late night. I'm all about quick and easy during the week (that's what she said).
