Recipe

True story, I will eat almost anything covered in buffalo sauce. It seriously makes everything taste delicious and a bit naughty since we usually associate buffalo sauce with high calorie treats likes wings and fries. Luckily the buffalo sauce itself is surprisingly low in calories (when you don't mix it with a pound of butter) so it's a great way to add flavor to your recipes.

Today's simple recipe capitalizes on all that flavor to make a delicious quesadilla. Buffalo chicken, carrots, celery, and cheese are all folded into a low carb wrap (or flour tortilla) and cooked up until it's nice and crispy. You can definitely add some extra veggies if you like or substitute some of the shredded cheddar for crumbled blue cheese. Additionally no one would blame you if you dipped your quesadilla in some light ranch on the side.
