I had never thought about buttering the tortilla when making a quesadilla and loved the result: tortilla was still soft but had a golden "crustiness" to it. I used 96% fat-free flour tortillas, Smart Balance in place of the butter, fat-free refried beans and stirred in a 4-ounce can of chopped green chilis, then topped with cooked shredded chicken and Kraft Free Shredded Cheddar. YUM!
