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 orange spinach salad alongside.
How Many Calories and WW Points in this Quesadilla?
The points for this skinny cheesy hot dog quesadilla will vary considerably depending on the ingredients you use.
I used a low fat Hebrew National hotdog and low carb tortilla to keep the WW Points low.
I calculated mine at *5 SmartPoints by using an Xtreme Wellness high fiber low carb tortilla and by using mostly mustard, with just a smattering of ketchup and relish.
According to my calculations this quesadilla has 220 calories and:
5 *SmartPoints (Green plan)
5 *SmartPoints (Blue plan)
5 *SmartPoints (Purple plan)
6 *PointsPlus (Old plan)
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. Enjoy!

Skinny Cheesy Hot Dog Quesadilla
- 1 high fiber, low carb quesadilla (like the kind from Ole Xtreme Wellness)
- 1 fully cooked fat free hot dog, cut into ¼-inch thick rounds (I like Hebrew National)
- ½ cup shredded low fat cheese
- condiments of your choice: mustard, relish, ketchup, salsa, hot sauce, bbq sauce, etc. (optional)
- Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat it over medium-high heat.
- Put the tortilla in the skillet. Sprinkle one half of the tortilla with cheese. Arrange the hot dog slices on top of the cheese.
- Cook until the underside of the tortilla is golden brown and the cheese begins to melt. Fold the unfilled side of the tortilla over the filled side and press gently.
- Remove from the skillet and cut into 3 or 4 wedges. Serve with your favorite hot dog condiments.
