Turkey and Roasted Pepper Quesadillas Recipe


Turkey Recipes: Turkey and Roasted Pepper Quesadillas ingredients



  • 1 package (5 ounces) Butterball® Thin Sliced Honey Roasted Turkey Breast. I used the Butterball Turkey Breast instead because the kids already know and love it.  My son is used to put it in his sandwhiches!
  • 8 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted red peppers
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 (10 inch) flour tortillas! I used Pesto tortillas because it will provide  a nice color to the meal! The more the meals are colorful, the more likely the kids will eat it!


Directions for this low fat turkey recipe
Turkey and Roasted Pepper Quesadillas ingredients


1. Place equal amounts of turkey, cheese, roasted peppers, and parsley on each of 2 tortillas. Top each with another tortilla. This can be performed by a younger child! My 5 year-old was happy to do it! It’s the perfect opportunity to get kids involved in the kitchen!



2. Place a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add olive oil. Tilt skillet to coat bottom. Carefully add the tortillas. Cook 3 minutes on each side, pressing down on top with a spatula, or until the cheese is melted and the tortillas are golden. My 11 year-old was happy to do it (with my supervision of course).


3. Remove from pan and cut into wedges. Be careful, it can be hot!Voila! Ready in less than 30 minutes!
