A delicious alternative to Turkey sandwiches, turkey quesadillas are great for using up leftover roast Turkey. In this simple recipe, flour tortilla is brushed with olive oil and filled with grated Monterey Jack cheese and shredded turkey and cooked over low heat on both sides until golden brown and crisp and the cheese has melted. Serve the turkey quesadillas with a side of salsa for dipping or scooping.

Quesadilla is the Mexican version of grilled cheese and the most basic form of quesadilla is made with flour or corn tortilla filled with shredded cheese, folded in half to envelope the filling, and toasted or heated until the cheese melts and the tortilla is crisp and golden on the outside. Quesadilla can be delicious on its own but it can also be enjoyed with sauces like salsa, sour cream, guacamole, and hot sauce.

There are any varieties of quesadilla.

Besides cheese, other fillings may also include chicken, ham, beef, pork, chorizo, sausage, pepperoni, fish, or in this case, turkey. Mushrooms and vegetables like squash blossoms, potatoes, onion, garlic, tomato, potato, bell peppers, chile peppers, jalapeno peppers, black beans, and spinach may also be added. The meat or vegetables are typically cooked before adding to the tortillas as filling. The quesadillas may also be garnished or topped with avocado, cilantro, tomato, chilies, cheese, and sliced onions.

Turkey quesadillas is an excellent way to get creative with turkey leftovers after the holidays. You can also make the turkeys using deli turkey instead of roasted turkey. Alternatively, you can use ground turkey meat and sauté it with garlic and onions, and season with herbs and spices before using as a filling for the quesadillas. For an extra bite, use pepper jack cheese instead of regular Monterey jack. You can also make a cranberry salsa made with leftover cranberry sauce.
