I use to go to this small black-owned cafe where they’d make me these delicious collard green quesadillas with chicken. They were in large green wraps and absolutely delicious. I loved to eat them but I’m always looking for something that is lower carb. Eventually, this option was removed from the menu but I never forgot it. I was the only person really ordering it off the menu.
When I came across Crepini’s Egg Wraps with Cauliflower at Costco, I immediately thought about recreating that quesadilla. The Crepini has zero net carbs but still is crispy, giving you the same consistency as a wrap made from grains. Low carb food but still that crispy bread texture is always the move. This recipe is so simple and fast. You can add tomatoes, substitute the chicken for pulled pork or mushrooms to make it vegetarian. The possibilities are endless. Make this recipe as is and you’ll be getting protein, veggies, fiber, and a delicious meal.
I regularly have grilled skinless boneless chicken tenderloins cooked and in the fridge. I cook my own chicken because I want to control the way it’s prepared and seasoned. This also allows me to use the chicken in other recipes like Cobb Salads. You can do this or you can buy already cooked chicken from the freezer section or pull a roasted chicken apart. This simply delicious recipe won’t disappoint. It has zero net carbs, is Keto & F-Factor approved. Welcome to a new way to eat quesadillas.
