Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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

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
