    2 small green and/or red sweet peppers, cut into strips
    1 small onion, cut into thin, 1" long strips
    1 large tomato, chopped
    2 tsp olive oil
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    1/2 tsp chili powder
    2 tbsp fresh cilantro
    1/3 cup lowfat cream cheese
    5 6-7" whole wheat tortillas


Preheat oven to 425.

1. In a large, nonstick skillet cook peppers and onion in 1 tsp of the oil for 3-5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Stir in cumin and chili powder. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Stir in the cilantro. Set aside.

2. Spread cream cheese over half of 1 side of each tortilla. Top with pepper mixture. Fold tortilla in half over peppers, pressing gently.

3. Place tortillas on ungreased baking sheet. Brush tortillas with remaining oil. Bake at 425 for 5 minutes. Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges. Serve with warm salsa, if desired.

Makes 10 servings (each serving is 2 of the wedges, or 1/4 of the total tortilla)

    I loved this. Didn't have tomatoes, so left that out, added mushrooms. Also used a sprinkle of cheddar cheese instead of cream cheese. I loved the cilantro in it! - 7/9/09
