Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Skinny Cheesy Hot Dog Quesadilla
The idea for this skinny cheesy hot dog quesadilla was hatched as I was cleaning out the fridge around lunch time and discovered a couple of hot dogs lurking.
Since quesadillas are one of my favorite things on earth to eat, I decided to use one of them to make a skinny cheesy hot dog quesadilla for lunch.
Topped with a smattering of mustard, relish and ketchup, it turned out better than I’d hoped.
I balanced things out by having a small spinach strawberry salad on the side.
The Skinny on this Cheesy Hot Dog Quesadilla
The points for this skinny cheesy hot dog quesadilla will vary considerably depending on the ingredients you use.
You could definitely shave off a SmartPoint,or two, by choosing a smaller, or low carb, tortilla.
I calculated mine at 7 SmartPoints. By using mostly mustard, with just a smattering of ketchup and relish, I was able to keep the condiment count to just 1 additional SmartPoint.
Rounding things out with salad helped to keep both my tastebuds happy and my stomach satisfied for hours.
This simple yet tasty recipe should please even the most picky palate.
