TURKEY CHORIZO QUESADILLAS 🌮




Another Sunday meal prep is upon us! 📆 What better thing to get excited about this week than chorizo quesadillas?! For those who don’t know, chorizo is traditionally a type of spicy pork sausage, but I had ground turkey in the freezer, so that’s what I used 💁🏼‍♀️ These quesadillas are tasty nutrition power-houses, full of protein, fiber, and almost 9g of the healthy unsaturated fats! 💪🏼

Directions:

1. Mix ground turkey, vinegar, garlic, and all spices in a large bowl. Spray pan with olive oil spray, place in turkey mix and chopped onion over medium heat, and cook until turkey is done and crumbled (about 8-10 mins). Place in bowl and set aside.

2. Wipe out pan. Spray again with olive oil spray, then place tortilla in pan. Add turkey mix, cheese, sliced tomato, and lettuce to 1/2 of tortilla, then fold in half. Cook on medium low heat, flipping often. (Cook about 4-5 mins per side). Remove from pan and enjoy! 😋

*If you’re making the spicy sauce, don’t forget that for serving!*
