1 serving Oven-Roasted Peppers, cut into thin strips
1 avocados, cut into small cubes 170 g
65 g turkey breast roast (cooked), thinly sliced
1/4 red onions, chopped 40 g
2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped 4 g
1 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 1/2 lemon

1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g

2/3 cup Cheddar cheese, grated 50 g

Before you start

Depending on the quantity of quesadillas you wish to prepare, you may choose to cook them in a nonstick pan, or to arrange them on a baking sheet then broil them in an oven, at about 10 cm from the heat.


  1. Put half of the tortillas on a working surface. Put all ingredients, except the cheese, in a bowl. Mix the ingredients well to distribute the spices evenly in the mixture. Portion out the mixture onto the tortillas, spread it evenly over the tortilla surfaces, then top with the cheese and cover with the remaining tortillas.
  2. Sauté each quesadilla in a nonstick pan over medium-low heat 1-2 min, then flip it over using a spatula. Cook an additional 2 min until the cheese has melted and the tortillas are golden-coloured. Pay attention not to overcook the tortillas to a crispy texture – they should remain somewhat soft and pliable. Repeat with the remaining quesadillas. (You can keep them warm in a 95°C/200°F oven for a few minutes). Alternatively, quesadillas may be broiled, about 2 min per side. Do not overcook: tortillas should not be too crisp and remain soft.
  3. Cut each quesadilla into 6 wedges then serve.

Leaving out the onions next time, though. I think it was worth it to make the homemade roasted peppers. I did yellow and they made the meal.

Yum yum! Kid's even loved it. I used store bought grilled peppers (in a jar) and sliced ham instead of turkey and it was delicious! My son added salsa to his and loved it.

I made it with leftover chicken and added chives instead of the onions. Very simple to make and would be nice to let your kids help out by grating cheese, or cutting the avocado with a plastic knife. Yummy, and easy to adjust with ingredients you have on hand!
