Notes

You can make the creamy Mexican dip a day or two in advance. It will enhance the flavors!  The creamy Mexican dip is also Weight Watchers friendly!  The only thing that has any points is the salsa, and that is one point for 2 tablespoons. We served our quesadillas with chips and fresh vegetables, which we also dipped in the homemade Mexican dip.

This recipe will make 6 "wedges", each person in my family ate 2 wedges, adjust the recipe as needed for your family.  These cheesy quesadillas also warm up nicely if you end up with any leftovers.
