"Turkey is the ultimate American meat. So, why not use it in a quesadilla? Quesadillas are found to be older than the famous tacos and burritos. Quesadillas came from the northern and central parts of Mexico in the 16th century. This recipe uses a celebrated protein, which is turkey. This turkey quesadilla has flavorful meat, which is versatile in terms of flavor and can stand as a great ingredient in any cuisine.
