Smoked Turkey Quesadillas

In case you exhausted all your appetizer recipes during the holidays, here is a good one that can also serve as a meal.

8 seven inch tortillas
2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
2 cups diced smoked turkey
1/4 cup diced green chilies
24 fresh baby spinach leaves (washed and dried)
1 jar of mild or hot salsa
1 pint prepared sour cream
2-3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 fresh lime for drizzle

Brush oil on one side of each tortilla. On half of the non-oiled side, sprinkle 1/4 cup of the cheese, 1/4 cup of diced turkey and 2 teaspoons of the chilies. Quarter the lime and drizzle some juice over the cheese, turkey, etc. Top with 3 spinach leaves (or to taste). Fold tortilla in half and cook until golden brown, on both sides, in a large skillet. Once browned, remove from pan and cut into three wedges. Serve with salsa and sour cream. Makes 24 appetizers.
