A perfect snack, make these quesadillas ahead then cook them just before you want to eat.


  • 1 8oz skinless, boneless Ontario Turkey Breast, cut into thin strips

  • 1 tbsp canola oil

  • 1 large green bell pepper, thinly sliced

  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced

  • 1 tsp chili powder

  • 1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground

  • 6 large whole wheat flour tortillas

  • 2 cups light Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese, shredded

  • 3/4 cup salsa, (optional)


  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat and cook Turkey, stirring for about 5 minutes or until no longer pink inside. Remove to plate.

  • Return skillet to medium-high heat and cook pepper, onion and chili powder for about 3 minutes or until onions just begins to soften. Stir in Turkey, hot pepper sauce and pepper.

  • Divide Turkey mixture among half of each of the tortillas. Sprinkle with cheese and fold over uncovered half, pressing to help seal.
