    Spray large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium heat until hot. Place 1 quesadilla, oil side down, in skillet; brush top side with about 1/2 teaspoon remaining oil. Cook about 2 minutes or until light golden brown.

    Turn quesadilla; cook an additional 2 minutes or until light golden brown. Repeat with remaining quesadilla. Serve with sour cream mixture.

Expert Tips

  • Canned green chiles can be used in place of the jalapeño chiles.
  • To reduce the fat in this recipe by about 21 grams per serving, substitute reduced-fat taco cheese and light sour cream for the regular cheese and sour cream.
  • After cooking the first quesadilla, cover it to keep it warm while you cook the remaining quesadilla.
  • A shredded lettuce salad tossed with sliced ripe olives, avocado and tomatoes makes a nice accompaniment to this quesadilla. Finish the meal with a scoop of lime sorbet.
