If you choose tortillas that are WHOLE GRAIN – pick ones with the least amount of ingredients on the list.
If you choose corn, they are smaller but a healthier option, as they are less processed.
Add organic black beans to your quesadilla for some added flavor, protein and fiber.
Serve with your favorite salsa and/or guacamole.
