oz. (1 1/3 cups) shredded Cheddar cheese

cup light sour cream

Steps

  • 1 Heat grill. Spray bell peppers with nonstick cooking spray.

Expert Tips

Use a colorful mix of bell peppers for these quesadillas; try orange or purple in addition to the usual red, yellow and green.

For an Italian slant, substitute provolone, a firm but moist cheese from southern Italy. It adds a slightly smoky flavor. For a Mexican slant, substitute a pepper-Jack cheese blend.
