    All this balony about too much sodium, fat and the like is what makes dieting soooo tedius. It's ONE meal. It's not every meal for the rest of your life, so lighten up, adapt it (if you must) but be a bit more grateful for what is a very tasty, very good meal idea! Make dieting FUN! - 3/26/09

    For those of you who are rating this one-star, or bad, please keep in mind that this is a low-carb recipe, NOT a low-fat. Anytime the fat content of a processed food is lowered, the carbs increase to compensate. Feel free to change the recipe to fit your needs, but do not bad cuz of amt. of fat. - 3/24/09

    Along with other 'good tips'. I make these in my George Foreman grill - just spray it. No need for oil/butter and no need to flip it, perfectly browned and crunchy. You could use any sandwich maker machine as well. - 3/24/09

    I omit the sour cream and use whole wheat tortillas and no butter (just a spray of cooking oil). Easy and a tasty snack or lunch! You can also add veggies inside it for a heartier (and healthier) quesadilla. - 8/8/07

    I made several changes and they were delicious. I use wheat tortillas, 2% cheese, and low-fat sour cream. Also put a little onion, green pepper and chicken in with the cheese. Instead of using butter in a skillet bake them in the oven. - 3/24/09
