Sounds good. Hubby loves quesadillas. Interesting that she bakes them. I will try that when I make them.

Recipe Ingredients for Jessica Seinfeld's Quesadillas (with Butternut Squash)

1 Nonstick cooking spray
1 tbsp. olive oil
145 g (1 fillet) Boneless Skinless chicken Breast
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. chili powder, or to taste
1/2 cup navy beans , drained and rinsed
1/2 cup fat free sour cream
1/2 cup butternut squash puree
4 oz. (1/2 cup) fat free cheddar cheese, shredded
4 whole-wheat tortillas
1/2 cup salsa

Recipe Directions for Jessica Seinfeld's Quesadillas (with Butternut Squash)

  1. Preheat oven to 400. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

  2. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and set it over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the oil. Sprinkle the chicken with salt, pepper, and chili powder, add it to the pan, and cook until no longer pink in the center, 4 to 5 minutes per side for cutlets. For chicken breast, cook 5 minutes per side, reduce heat to low, cover, and cook 9 to 10 minutes longer. Cut the chicken into thin slices, or puree it, if necessary.

  3. In a small bowl or mini-chopper, mash the beans with the sour cream. In another bowl, stir together the butternut squash puree and the cheese.

  4. Spread the bean mixture over two of the tortillas, then arrange the chicken slices or spread the pureed chicken on top. Spread the cheese mixture over the other two tortillas and press one of each together to form sandwiches. Place on the baking sheet and bake until the tortillas are crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Cut into wedges and serve with salsa.
