Healthy Dinner Recipes

Steph’s Chicken Quesadillas is a very popular dish at the Hoaglund house. Both my kids give it a thumbs up which is a very rare rating for them. I also like this because its quick, healthy and it’s not complicated!

a bunch of chopped up cooked chicken breast – you can even use the frozen grilled chicken strips and reheat in the microwave if you are short on time!
chopped green onions
chopped up spinach
chopped fresh cilantro
Reduced-fat cheddar cheese or slices of reduced fat sharp cheddar
flour tortillas – you could use whole wheat or I have even used spinach and garlic tortillas but the color tends to throw the kids off.

Spray olive oil on your pan, put the tortilla in the pan, fill it with the items above, and fold over and cook on each side until the tortilla browns and the cheese is melted. Repeat for all the quesadillas you need. Cut them into small triangles and serve with salsa!

Here are some recent recipes I found that look pretty good!  Share some of your own healthy, family friendly recipes if you want! I would love to have more ideas…

Skinny Lasagna Ole’ | Active.com.

This spectacular Mexican layered casserole is hearty and healthy. It’s loaded with lean protein from the chicken, reduced-fat cottage cheese and fat-free refried beans. It’s also perfect for those sensitive to wheat since we’re using corn tortillas instead of lasagna noodles.

  • Hello, thanks for your recipes – they should great and we look forward to trying them!

    We wanted to a recipe that you can use with your torillas. My husband and I are on a low calorie diet and just love pizza. For the past couple of years we had to give up one of our favorite foods although I was determined to find a pizza recipe! We found the best Torillas which are made by ‘The La Tortilla Factory’ and they are the Low Carb/High Fiber Tortillas (only 80 calories per torilla and they are the large size)!

    Ever since then we have been faithful customers (actually most days we have at least 2 of these wraps). These tortillas are cholesterol-free, contain no saturated fats, trans fat or hydrogenated oils!

    We use the wraps for all of our meals – breakfast, lunch and dinner although can be also used for snacks (you just have to get creative).

    If you are interested, we list our favorite Italian Veggie Pizza Recipe on our site and will continue to list more our of recipes (under our food findings section).

    You can find these torillas at local grocery stores although if you have any problems finding them at your local store you can also order them online either from La Torilla directly or from other online health stores.

    Hope you are able to enjoy and look forward to reading more! 🙂
