Fiesta Quesadillas

Makes 32 appetizers

3/4 cup shredded nonfat or reduced-fat Monterey jack cheese
3/4 cup shredded nonfat or reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions
1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chiles, drained
2-3 tablespoons chopped jalapeno peppers (optional)

Topping
1 cup nonfat sour cream
3 tablespoons thinly sliced scallions

Combine the cheeses and set aside.

Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Brush one side of each tortilla lightly with water. Lay 4 of the tortillas, moist side down, on the baking sheet. Spread 1/4 of the cheese mixture on each of the 4 tortillas. Top with 1/4 of the scallions, chiles and jalapenos. Top with the remaining tortillas, placing them moist side up.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 7 to 9 minutes, or until the quesadillas are heated through and the cheese is melted.

Place the sour cream in a small dish and sprinkle with the scallions. Cut each quesadilla into 8 wedges, transfer to a serving platter, and serve hot, accompanied by the sour cream.

Makes 32 appetizers.

Trade the flour tortillas in for corn ones and Johnny and I are good to go! (He can't have "normal" flour.) They sound great!!!
Oh - and The Biggest Loser League is an online community set up by NBC (http://tbll.nbc.com). The Babyfat Go Bye-Bye Team I started (oddly enough named after my blog) for other mommies to support eachother through losing the babyfat ... regardless of whether their kids are brand new or in college :) It's great group but there are still too many kinks with the site for me to want the added hassle when facebook is SO much easier to handle!

JACK: Have you tried it yet?

KAREN: Have you tried it yet? Also corn tortillas are a little healthier for you than the flour ones.

IZZY: You gonna try them?
