How to Calculate Atkins Net Carbs

Atkins Net Carbs = Total Carbohydrates – Fiber – Sugar Alcohols/Glycerin (if applicable)



  • 1 cup, shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 8 tortilla Low Carb Tortillas
  • 8 oz, boneless, cooked Chicken Breast
  • 2 oz Roasted Bell Peppers
  • 3 medium (4-1/8" long) Scallions or Spring Onions
  • 4 sprig Cilantro
  • 3 tablespoon Unsalted Butter Stick


  1. Divide and spread half of the cheese over 4 tortillas, leaving a 1/2-inch border around edge. Dice the chicken, roasted peppers and scallions. Evenly divide into four portions then arrange over cheese. Sprinkle with cilantro and remaining cheese. Cover each with a tortilla.
  2. Heat two large nonstick skillets over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Add one piece of butter to each skillet, and heat until melted. Place one quesadilla in each skillet, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, turning carefully with a wide spatula. Repeat with remaining butter and quesadillas. 
  3. Cut each quesadilla into eight wedges. If desired, garnish with sour cream, salsa, mini bell pepper and jalapeno (but remember this will add additional carbs).
