Turkey and Balsamic Onion Quesadillas

This is not your traditional quesadilla!  Turkey and cheese are a combo your kids are sure to love and the addition of the balsamic onions makes it not-so-ordinary.  Serve with a side salad and you’ll have dinner for 4 on the table in 20 minutes.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 4 10-inch whole-wheat tortillas
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 8 slices deli turkey (8 ounces)

What you’ll do:

  • Combine the sliced onion and vinegar in a small bowl; let marinate for 5 minutes.
  • Drain the onions from the vinegar.**
  • In a large skillet, heat 2 tortillas over medium-high heat for 45 seconds, then flip.
  • Pull one edge of each tortilla over the side of the pan so that the tortillas are not overlapping.
  • On one half of each tortilla, sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese.  Cover with 2 turkey slices and 1/4th of the onion mixture.  Fold in half and gently flatten with a spatula.
  • Cook for about 2 minutes, or until the cheese starts to melt.
  • Flip and cook until the other side is golden, 1 or 2 minutes more.
  • Remove from skillet and keep warm.  Repeat process with remaining tortillas.
** Reserve the leftover vinegar to use in future salad dressings, if desired.
