    AndreaVT96's Note:

    This was a recipe that I received at a recent Weight Watchers meeting. Though it's full of yummy beef, cheese and spinach, according to Weight Watchers, only has 8 points for 1 whole quesadilla. (Serving suggestion by WW was 1/4 of a quesadilla for 2 pts, but I made these, and we each ate 1 whole for dinner.) My husband and I really liked them--they do not have a traditional flavor, but the blue cheese is so yummy. Adjust the heat of the taco sauce and the amount of red pepper flakes to your spiciness liking. We served these with extra taco sauce on the side.

      DH and I really enjoyed this. We aren't doing WW but I thought it looked good anyway :) I do think, however that it would be tastier with ground turkey or shredded chicken.
