Turkey, Swiss and Cranberry Quesadillas take 10 minutes to make and are full of your favorite Thanksgiving flavors without all the work!
I love the food that is served at Thanksgiving so much! Turkey, sweet potatoes, homemade cranberry sauce, dad's stuffing, mom's sweet and sour green beans, mashed potatoes and more! I get so excited for it and pretty much never get sick of the leftovers before they are gone. The food is awesome!
In fact, we are lucky enough to get to eat two Thanksgiving dinners each year. We have lunch at my parent's house and dinner at one of Troy's Aunt's houses. It is so great.
I got to thinking this year, why do I have to wait until Thanksgiving to eat Thanksgiving food? Okay, sure, I am not going to bake up a huge turkey and make every side dish but I can surely make some of it. That is when this turkey, Swiss and cranberry quesadilla came to mind. I also added some baby spinach leaves and sweet potatoes for nutrition and flavor.
If you are making this near Thanksgiving or another time when you have real turkey on hand, definitely use that. It will be awesome. I just had lunch meat turkey when I made this but it still turned out great.
You can use leftover cranberry sauce, homemade sauce or canned sauce even. To make my sauce, I just cook together some cranberries and maple syrup for a delicious and quick cranberry sauce. I use as little sugar as possible because I like my sauce tart and healthy. If you are not a fan of cranberries, just skip the sauce. You could use gravy instead. This quesadilla is cheesy, tangy, flavorful and the perfect mix of flavors.
