Apple Cheddar Quesadillas

This almost goes without saying, but I overindulged this holiday season. Didn’t you? Since my pants are feeling a little snug, I’ve been on the look-out for light, healthy meals that will get my eating habits back on track. These apple cheddar quesadillas certainly fit the bill.

To make the quesadillas, I used organic, whole wheat tortillas, sharp cheddar cheese and crisp, thinly sliced granny smith apples. Cheese and apples alone didn’t have quite enough flavor, but adding a thin layer of dijon mustard to one half of the quesadilla before cooking took it to a whole new level. Thinly sliced shallot is nice, too.

End result? A yummy combination of unexpected flavors, melted to perfection. Try it! I paired the quesadilla with my sweet potato fries.

Have you ever tried cheddar cheese with apples before? This was my first try and I’m going back for seconds. 🙂
