Although they're healthy to eat they are really delicious and you'd never think of these as diet food, just take a look at what's in them.

Weight Watchers ingredients for Quesadillas

All that's missing from the above picture are the tortilla wraps and a little grated cheese.

We love the fresh taste of the tomatoes, onion, cucumber and avocado.

The Weight Watchers recipe was straightforward to follow and in just 15 minutes the quesadillas were on our plates and ready to eat!

How to make Weight Watchers Quesadillas

No fancy equipment needed to make these, just a chopping board, sharp knife and a frying pan.

Make the salsa by chopping the avocado flesh along with the red onion, tomato, cucumber and some chopped coriander - you can use parsley if you wish.

Add a squeeze of lemon juice and season with a little salt and pepper.

Sprinkle half the salsa over one half of a tortilla wrap and cheese over the entire surface.

Cook in a frying pan over medium heat for a couple of minutes until the tortilla is golden underneath.

Fold the tortilla over the filling, slide onto a plate and serve - it's as simple as that!
