Picadillo Quesadillas

One word… YUM!

I make Crock Pot Picadillo all the time in my house (Madison’s number one request), and because it makes so much I like to get creative with my leftovers. I came up with this for lunch one day and my husband said I should put it on the blog, so I thought with Cinco De Mayo coming, it would be fun to do some Cuban-Mexi fusion.

I made a really quick & easy Pico de Gallo to add along with the cheddar jack cheese, the results – delicious!

For the quick Pico De Gallo:

  • 1 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 tbsp chopped tomato
  • 1 tbsp chopped scallion
  • juice from 1/2 lime

For the quesadilla:

  • cooking spray
  • 2 reduced-carb whole wheat flour tortillas
  • 6 tbsp shredded reduced fat cheddar jack
  • 1/2 cup Crock Pot Picadillo (drained)


Combine the ingredients for the quick pico de gallo in a small bowl.

Heat a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spray the skillet with oil and add a tortilla. Brown about 2 minutes on each side, then spread 1/4 cup picadillo on half of the tortilla. Top with cheese and half of the pico de gallo, then fold and press down with a spatula. Cook 1 to 2 minutes on each side, until the cheese is melted and the tortilla is crisp.

Remove from heat and cut in 3 pieces. Repeat with the remaining. Eat hot!
