Smoked Turkey and Jack Cheese Quesadillas
Number of Servings: 2
Serving Size: 1 quesadilla
This is a light yet satisfying meal in a hurry. We like to serve the quesadillas with carrot and celery sticks.
|8-in diameter whole wheat or regular flour tortillas||4|
|shredded, fat-free Monterey jack, fat-free jalapeno-flavored jack cheese, or fat-free cheddar cheese, divided||0.67 cup|
|chopped canned mild green chiles or coarsely chopped bottled roasted red sweet pepper, well drained, divided||0.25 cup|
|diced (1/4-in) fresh tomato||0.33 cup|
|to 6 large very thin slices (about 5 oz) smoked lean turkey breast||4|
Lay a tortilla on a microwave-safe plate. Sprinkle the tortilla evenly with 1/4 of the cheese. Cover the plate with a plastic microwave cover. Microwave on 50 percent power for 1 minute. If the cheese isn’t partially melted, continue microwaving on 50 percent power just until it partially melts, stopping and checking every 30 seconds.2:
Spread half the green chiles (or red sweet pepper) and half the tomato over the cheese (or sprinkle the green pepper over the melted cheese). Lay half the turkey slices over the top, pressing down lightly. Sprinkle 1/4 cup of the cheese over the turkey. Cover the cheese with a second tortilla.3:
Return the quesadilla to the microwave oven. Cover with a plastic microwave cover. Microwave on 50 percent power for 1 minute. Lift the edge of the tortilla to see if the cheese is melted; if not, continue microwaving, checking every 20 seconds until the cheese is melted.4:
Repeat the assembly and microwaving process for the second quesadilla. Cut the quesadillas into wedges and serve.
