Happy (belated) Thanksgiving!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday, spending time with your loved ones and eating until you can’t possibly eat any more! As wonderful as your meals have been, I have a sneaking suspicion that many of you are close to being tired of turkey, if you aren’t already are. So, here is a recipe to add some spice (literally or figuratively – you choose) to that leftover turkey.
- 1 tortilla
- 1/2 cup grated cheese
- 1/4 red bell pepper, sliced
- 1/4 orange bell pepper, sliced
- 1/4 onion sliced
- 1/3 cup cooked turkey, shredded or sliced
- sour cream
- In medium frying pan, heat a teaspoon of oil and add the onion and red bell peppers. Saute until softened and the onions are slightly translucent, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
- In large frying pan, put the tortilla in the frying pan. Cover half the tortilla with half the grated cheese. Add the sauteed peppers and onion and turkey to the tortilla. Cover with the remaining cheese.
- Fold over the other half of the tortilla, so it looks like a half moon.
- Leave in the frying pan until cheese is melted and the bottom is golden brown. Flip the tortilla and repeat on the other side.
- The amounts in this recipe are for one quesadilla. It is really easy to double or triple the recipe for more than one quesadilla.
- If you like a bit of heat, add some cayenne or chili pepper to the peppers and onions when you are sauteeing them.
- Feel free to enjoy with sour cream or salsa when it's hot and fresh.
