Leftover Turkey Quesadillas Recipe and a $100 Restaurant Gift Card


This week, chefs from Fleming's Prime Steakhouse are serving up recipes for leftover Thanksgiving turkey, along with a $100 gift card giveaway. Today's recipe is one that is sure to appeal to children in your home over the holidays. We tend to do some type of Tex-Mex nearly every week at our house, so I know that my four would enjoy this holiday twist to favorite family fare.



Roasted Turkey Quesadillas

Makes 4 servings

4 (10-inch) flour tortillas

4 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese

4 ounces AƱejo (or any white cheese)

1 red pepper, julienned

1 yellow pepper, julienned

4 ounces onion, julienned

½ cup black olives

8 ounces leftover turkey, diced

1 bunch fresh cilantro, leaves picked

1 cup sour cream

1 cup guacamole

1 cup salsa


Place a large cast iron pan over medium heat.

Spray both sides of tortillas with cooking spray. Cook on 1 side until lightly brown, about 1½ minutes, then flip. Immediately sprinkle each tortilla with ½ ounce of each cheese (avoid letting cheese hit pan).

Divide red pepper, yellow pepper, onion, olives, and turkey among tortillas. Top with cilantro leaves and remaining cheese, then fold each tortilla in half. Cook until golden brown, then transfer to a cutting board.

Cut each quesadilla into 4 to 5 pie-shaped pieces. Serve with sour cream, guacamole and salsa.

Good idea! I haven't made quesadillas with leftover turkey before. It's always a favorite when you want to make something quick that everybody likes.
