The Best Turkey Quesadilla — An Upscale Version

Wine Pairing​

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.

According to books and research, the literal meaning of Quesadilla is a “little cheesy thing.” We always think about a strand of cheese oozing out the tortilla.

Aztec people were the first to use corn tortilla as part of their diet. They often stuff them with vegetables such as squash and pumpkin. They bake them in clay ovens as a dessert. During the Spanish colonization, the indigenous people started using dairy products. That’s when cheese became a common stuffing for their tortillas.

The possibility of meat filling ideas is endless — as long as you top it with cheese such as cheddar or Monterey Jack. You can use beef, pork, chicken, and other types of protein to your liking. Vegetarians and other health-conscious people have concocted several recipes that could benefit their preferences and diet.
