Healthy Quesadilla Burger

There isn't much that is better than a burger mixed with a quesadilla. I mean seriously. Cheese, meat, more cheese, tortillas, sauce, and salsa...what's better!? Unfortunately for some of us, it's not too waist (and hips, and butt, and belly) friendly.

After splurging on a quesadilla burger at Applebee's (and feeling like a bloated grease ball afterwards) I knew there had to be a way I could eat this and not feel so guilty and it wouldn't completely wreck my hard work at slimming down. 

So here it is - a lighter, healthier version!



Quesadilla Burger

1 - burger patty (mine was 4 oz local lean meat)

2 - 6"corn tortilla (or flour)

1/2 cup of lettuce

1/3 cup Part skim Mexican shredded cheese


Topped with Pico de gallo
I made my own:
Diced tomatoes, green pepper, onion, salt/pepper, and lime juice.

How to prepare:
Cook the burger on the grill
Preheat oven to 400
Place tortilla on a baking sheet then add 1/2 the cheese, burger patty, pico de gallo, and remaining cheese
Bake until the cheese is melted

Optional:
I made a sauce to spread on the burger using a 1/2 & 1/2 mixture of low fat mayo and pineapple salsa.

Enjoy!
