Does a low-fat quesadilla really exist?
Quesadillas are little more than crispy tortillas filled with lots of melted cheese. Can these Mexican specialties offer much nutrition? Applebee's Tortilla Chicken Melt shows promise. Inside a whole wheat tortilla you'll find roasted chicken, reduced fat cheese and fat-free Ranch dressing among a host of veggies including broccoli, corn and peppers. At Don Pablo's, you can order lunch-size portions until 4 p.m. Their Mesquite-Grilled Chicken Quesadilla is smaller than a regular portion and also includes lean chicken, melted cheese, and pico de gallo salsa. Could the healthy-sounding Applebee's Melt be lower in fat than a lunch portion at Don Pablo's? Take a guess!
Answer tomorrow!!! Stay tuned!
