- 1 low-carb tortilla (look for tortillas with fewer carbs and higher fiber content)
- 2 large eggs, scrambled
- 1/3 cup diced lean ham or turkey
- 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
- 1 slice Swiss cheese (optional)
- Cooking spray or a small amount of olive oil for the skillet
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Optional toppings: salsa, diced tomatoes, sliced avocado, or hot sauce
- Preheat a non-stick skillet over medium heat and lightly coat it with cooking spray or a small amount of olive oil.
- Place the low-carb tortilla in the skillet, allowing it to warm for about 1-2 minutes.
- In the meantime, scramble the eggs in a bowl and season with salt and pepper.
- Spread the scrambled eggs evenly over one half of the tortilla.
- Sprinkle the diced ham over the eggs, followed by the shredded cheddar cheese. Add the Swiss cheese slice if desired.
- Carefully fold the empty half of the tortilla over the egg and cheese mixture, creating a half-moon shape.
- Cook the quesadilla for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the cheese is melted, and the tortilla is golden brown and crispy.
- Once cooked, transfer the quesadilla to a cutting board and let it cool for a moment before slicing it into wedges.
- Serve hot, and garnish with your choice of optional toppings, such as salsa, diced tomatoes, sliced avocado, or hot sauce.
