Rotisserie Chicken 5 Meal Fix!! Meal #1: Chicken and Bean Quesadilla

This week Gordon is away with his dad. I was thinking about what I was going to make for dinners this week and came up with an idea. I bought a rotisserie chicken and each night I have a plan for using that main ingredient to make my dinners. Tonight was chicken and bean quesadillas without the cheese. I will not only be posting recipes, but I will also calculate the WW point values for my WW friends. By the end of the work week, I will have 5 rotisserie chicken dinners that are quick, easy, and on the healthy side!
 To start your week, remove all the meat off the chicken. This way you can measure amounts each day and save yourself some time each night!
 Everyone likes quesadillas. I decided to make a healthier version. Now remember, quesadillas in general are filled with cheese and are not very good for you. Some of them can be upwards of 25-30 points. Mine version is 9 points, filled me up and had several power foods in it which I don't mind using a few extra points on :)
¼ cup rotisserie chicken, diced
¼ cup fat free refried beans
¼ of an avocado
¼ cup salsa
black pepper
whole wheat tortilla


Spread the beans on the quesadilla and place diced chicken on half. Fold the tortilla and toast on both sides in a skillet or in a toaster oven. Mix the avocado, a pinch of black pepper and salsa together and top the quesadilla with it! Enjoy!
