Quick, Easy, Hardy Quesadilla

This does NOT taste like it's missing anything. Very hardy, very filling & can easily serve 4 as a light lunch (with a side salad) or as an appetizer. Your family will NOT know that this is a low-cal, high fiber treat! If the high sodium is a problem, I suggest switching out the meat, bacon & cheese for lower sodium alternatives. This is a great way to use up ingredients that are in the house when you need a quick yet hardy meal.
