Peach, Chicken and Gorgonzola Quesadillas

This uniquely delicious Weight Watchers quesadilla recipe brings a whole new dimension of flavor for just 5 Points. Using a high fiber, low carb flour tortilla as the base, I topped it with chicken breast, fresh arugula, sweet peach slices, and mozzarella & gorgonzola cheeses. Then, it’s drizzled with the balsamic glaze, capped off with another tortilla, and toasted to perfection. The mildly pungent gorgonzola cheese is the perfect complement to the peppery arugula and fresh, sweet peach slices. And the tart balsamic glaze ties it all in together. This is a wonderful summer Weight Watchers Recipe for those days when you are craving something warm and comforting, but still light. Enjoy!

  1. Just take 1 cup balsamic vinegar and simmer til it reduces and thickens…delicious!!!

  2. This was delicious. I didn’t have balsamic glaze so I used regular balsamic vinegar, and it was still very hard to resist making a second batch. I’ll be making this often, thanks so much!

  3. Wish I knew which Balsamic Glaze was used. Guess I will come up with something.

      You can buy any kind available at the store. If you can’t find the glaze, it’s ok to use just the regular balsamic vinegar…it’ll just be a bit more runny/soft on the inside.
