I like this because it is low carb and there are so few things Mexican to eat on low carb. Sometimes I like to top it with a fried egg and have it for breakfast.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt one teaspoon of butter in a skillet and add tortilla.
  2. Place shredded cheese on one half of tortilla and when tortilla softens, fold top half over it.
  3. Add the other teaspoon of butter to the pan and flip the tortilla with your spatula, just like a grilled cheese.
  4. When it browns, serve it with sour cream and salsa on top.
  5. For breakfast, top tortilla with a fried egg and a little more salsa if you like.
  6. Otherwise just serve it plain.

low fat dairy products do not have increased sugar and modified starches- and they are healthier for the heart and the waist line-which is healthy all the way around. if you have a apple shape figure you also have an increased chance of diabetes, heart disease and certain types of cancer-low fat and low carb should go hand in hand for a healthier you! check out the south beach diet for more info.

Yummy. Although low-carb, doesn't mean low-fat. Full-fat version is great.

I liked this recipe, I used whole fat products and taco bell hot sauce instead of salsa because that's what I keep on hand. Thanks for all your low carb recipes.
