Helpful Tips!

Choose whole wheat tortillas, which are higher in fiber and lower in sodium than white flour tortillas.

The peppers and zucchini add color and crunch to these quesadillas! At home, you can try adding other vegetables to your quesadillas. Raw or sautéed vegetables are a great option to color your quesadillas healthy!
