Broccoli, Cheese and Chilli Quesadillas ( Exotic Diabetic Recipe )

Maize flour and whole wheat flour add a healthy twist to the tortilla tale! And i’m sure you’ll love these – who doesn’t, when good taste comes with health! These tortillas can be made in bulk and stored in the deep freezer.

Use them to make as many dishes as you like-I have used them to make quesadillas and enchiladas, and even baked them to make chips etc – there are uses galore for this healthy and filling Mexican delicacy. I have used an uncommon veggie like broccoli in this recipe, to harness its unique taste.

The stuffing is simple and easy-to-make, yet very delicious. Cheese is rich in protein and calcium but very fattening, hence i have only used it in moderate amounts, and that too I've used mozzarella cheese that is low in calories and fat compared to cooking cheese.
