First in a bowl, add 1 8oz block of cream cheese, 2 diced jalapeños, 4 slices of bacon cooked and chopped, 3/4 cup of cheddar cheese, and 2 Tsp of seasoning salt. give this a thorough mix.
Next take your carb-watch tortillas, I used Guerrero Nutri-ricas 3 Carb tortillas. In each tortilla take some of the cream cheese mix and fully spread it on the tortilla.
In a non-stick skillet on medium heat, add a small bunch of cheddar cheese directly onto the skillet. Place 4-6 thinly sliced jalapeños onto of it. Then which the cheese is bubbling, place your tortilla on top open-faced with the cream cheese mix facing you. Sprinkle a little extra cheddar in the middle. Let the cheddar cheese start to crisp up on the outside and adhere to the tortilla.
When the cheese has successfully stuck to the tortilla and is able to be lifted off the pan, gently fold your tortilla in half. We want to continue to melt the cheese in the middle. If you think your skillet is too high, turn it down. This recipe makes about 6-8 quesadillas!
