This blog is dedicated to the low-carb menu challenge presented by Jimmy Moore. I'm living the Louisiana low carb lifestyle, where low-carb is the new way to go ! I live southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana....have three awesome kids. We are deep down in the heart of sweet Cajun Country, where we kick back and relax, go hunting, fishing, or make groceries! My doctor told me that my blood pressure numbers were getting too high, so I had to loose weight. She challenged me with ten pounds in three months. That was October 7, 2008. I lost 26 pounds !!! In February of 2011, I found that I had gained a few pounds more than I would have liked, weighing in at 170 pounds. I had to get back into the swing of living the low carb life again !! I am loving the 'low-carb' style and wish to contiue it . I exercise three times a week at the gym, and off the 'off' days, I learn to RELAX !! November 2011, finds me in different circumstances -- a new lifestyle, great community of friends and a challenge to keep that 45 pounds that I lost OFF. Feel free to read my blog, browse around, or just sit a spell!!

Low Carb Chicken & Cheese Quesdillas

I found a wonderful recipe for Chicken & Cheese Quesadillas. I'm always on the look out for new and wonderful low carb foods. Here goes !!

Prepare your favorite skinless, boneless chicken.  Cut into small pieces. ( I actually used about half of this amount to stuff into the quesdillas.)

Place the chicken on a 9 to 10 inch whole-wheat flour tortilla.

Add your favorite cheese. ( Mine is Kraft  Mexican Four Cheese).

Melt one Tbs. of the butter over medium heat in a 12 inch skillet or large griddle.  Add the quesadilla and cook for  3-4 minutes, or until the cheese begins to melt and the tortilla starts to brown. Turn and cook the other side for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve with beans, a salad or salsa. I preferred adding tomatoes and lettuce.

Slice each quesadilla in half... ENJOY !!!!!!
