Southwestern Quesadillas
Very Good 4.6/5

This is a spin-off of the Chili's Southwestern Egg rolls. Instead of deep-frying the filling, you put it in a tortilla and make a quesadilla.

I found the original recipe online on the NY Times website. They call their version Red Lentil Soup With Lemon. When I went to make it for the first time I messed up with the spices and added curry powder instead of cumin. When I realized my mistake I added the cumin anyway. I also omitted the finishing steps because I didn't have any lemon on hand. I just served it after hitting it with the immersion blender. The soup turned out amazing and it's been a favorite ever since.

Picadillo is a traditional beef taco filling that makes a terrific complement to potatoes, beans, and/or rice. Think of it as a cute little burrito.
We've simplified the recipe to create a healthy E2 version.

This is the most basic of the spreads. You can find a variation of this recipe in almost any grocery store, but 95 percent of them are made with either olive oil or tahini (sesame paste), which pushes up the fat content. Your best bet is to take three minutes and make a batch on Sunday that will last you for the week.

Our very own Station 2 won the 2003 Austin Fire Department’s Healthy Wagon Contest with this very healthful and tasty lunch/dinner wrap. The judges included three experts—the Fire Department’s in-house health specialist, a local representative from the American Heart Association, and a member of the Mayor’s Council for Physical Fitness.
The department also sponsored an awards presentation at which we received a little red wagon, a healthy low-fat cookbook, a salad spinner, and fifty dollars to use for a future healthy wagon.
This wrap also makes an excellent dinner.
