Sausage-Egg Quesadillas (Healthy Version)

1/2 lb. bulk lowfat sausage (Jimmy Dean makes a good one)
1/4 c chopped onion
1/2 T chili powder (if you’re using chipotle chili powder, use just the 1 tablespoon–it’s really hot)
1 cup Eggbeaters (try the southwestern flavor, too!)
grated nonfat cheddar
whole wheat or low-carb flour tortillas

Brown sausage together with the onion, breaking the sausage up into smaller crumbles. When browned, sprinkle with chili powder. Add Eggbeaters, and stir all together until eggs are cooked. Assemble the quesadillas: put a tortilla on a hot skillet. Spread about 1/3 cup of sausage-egg mixture on one half of the tortilla, then add a couple tablespoons shredded cheese. Fold tortilla over to form a half-circle. Brown lightly on both sides. Makes about 8.
