Ingredients

Directions

  • Combine onion and vinegar in a bowl; let marinate for 5 minutes. Drain, reserving the vinegar for another use, such as salad dressing.

  • Warm 2 tortillas in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat for about 45 seconds, then flip. Pull the tortillas up the edges of the pan so they are no longer overlapping. Working on one half of each tortilla, sprinkle one-fourth of the cheese, cover with 2 slices of turkey and top with one-fourth of the onion. Fold the tortillas in half, flatten gently with a spatula and cook until the cheese starts to melt, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook until the second side is golden, 1 to 2 minutes more. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Make 2 more quesadillas with the remaining ingredients.

I heard processed animal products cause cancer and that dairy is not good for you. Also where are the vegetables in this recipe other than a few onions? This months member focus newsletter where i found this recipe said we should be eating more fruits and vegetables and then features this recipe? That doesnt make sense! Please feature more recipes that feature fresh fruits and vegetables. Read More

Too many onions I like red onions but the recipe calls for too much onion. I ended up pulling half of mine off. Other than that the dish was easy to make and tasted OK. Pros: Easy to make Cons: Onions Read More

Good but changed a few things I put half the red onion since it's a little strong for me and diced it up but that's just my preference. Read More

Good with chicken too We really liked these. I didn't have flour tortillas so I used corn - 2 for each quesadilla. Put a tiny bit of canola oil on a griddle and heated them on both sides and then loaded one side up and covered with another one. I flipped them after a few minutes. I didn't have turkey either! But shredded chicken worked just fine. Next time I'll put a little salsa on too. Pros: quick tasty Read More

This is super easy and very satisfying as lunch/dinner when you're in a hurry. I really like balsamic so I don't drain all of it from the onions and add some to the quesadillas for more flavor. Read More

Love this dish. So easy and quick and even my children like it. On busy nights we serve it with soup and it's a substantial appealing meal. The red onion soaked in balsamic vinegar is a revelation -- such an easy thing to give dishes flavor without adding calories and fat. Read More

This is delicious healthy and very quick to make! I sauteed the onion in the basalmic vinegar mainly because I don't like raw onions that much the flavor from cooking the onion in the vinegar was really good. My husband was very skeptical when he saw me making them but he agreed that they were very good. Read More

Good I sauteed the onions in the vinegar and then also drizzled extra vinegar on the turkey slices while they were cooking. Nothing amazing but definitely good. For how quick and low calorie these are I'll be making them again. Read More
