Low Carb Quesadilla

Hi all!11940424_10152921043051626_147680063_n

The Low Carb Grocery got creative for a Low Carb QUESADILLA! We tried using as much in-store products as we can but adding green onion and shredded mozzarella REALLY makes it taste great! This recipe has a bit of a kick so you are warned! But please keep in mind there are other flavour options if you are not good with the spicyness.

1 Joseph’s Tortilla

¼ of one Spicy Nick Stick, sliced thin

1/4 CUP Cream Cheese *the picture shows 1/2 cup as the recipe had originally called for it but I ended up with some left over as I didn’t want the inside of the roll to be too thin
