Colorful Quesadillas

Red bell peppers are an excellent source of Vitamin A and Vitamin C!  For even more color, use orange and yellow bell peppers too!  Serve with a mixed fruit salad and low-fat milk for a healthy lunch!



8 ounces fat-free cream cheese

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

8 small whole wheat tortillas

½ cup chopped green bell pepper

½ cup chopped red bell pepper

1 cup shredded low-fat cheese

2 cups fresh spinach leaves



In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese and garlic powder.  Spread about 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture onto each   tortilla.  Sprinkle approximately 2 tablespoons green and red bell   pepper on one half of each tortilla.  Add ¼ cup of fresh spinach and fold tortillas in half.  Heat a large skillet over medium heat until hot.  Put 2 folded tortillas on the skillet and heat for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.  Remove quesadillas from the skillet.  Place on a platter and cover them with foil to keep warm while cooking the remainder.  Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges.  Serve warm.
