Ground Turkey Quesadillas




1/2 c chopped yellow onion

1/2 c refried beans

1 (4-oz) can diced green chilies, drained

1 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp dried oregano leaves

1/4 tsp salt

6 Large soft flour tortillas

1 tomato, chopped

3/4 c shredded Mexican-blend cheese

Fresh cilantro leaves As needed

Salsa and guacamole As needed



Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

Over medium heat, in a large nonstick skillet, cook turkey and onions until the turkey is no longer pink and the onions are soft. Drain, if necessary.

Add beans, drained chilies and herbs/spices into the turkey mixture. Reduce heat and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring to combine all ingredients.

Lightly spray one side of each tortilla with nonstick cooking spray and place it, sprayed side down, on the baking sheet. Place 2/3 cup of turkey mixture on one-half of each tortilla and spread it to within 1 inch of the edges.

Sprinkle each with tomato and cheese. Fold each tortilla in half.

Bake in a preheated oven for about 10 minutes or until lightly brown and crisp.

Slice each into wedges and garnish with cilantro. Serve warm with salsa and guacamole.
