Expert Tips

A shredded lettuce salad tossed with slices of ripe olives, avocado and tomatoes makes a nice accompaniment to these quesadillas. Finish with a scoop of lime or mango sorbet.

Microwave 1/2 cup instant white rice and 1/2 cup water in covered microwavable bowl about 4 minutes on High to get 1/2 cup cooked rice for this recipe.
