Ingredients

1/2 lb. sliced deli turkey

1 can diced green chiles, drained

2 oz. cream cheese

6-8 low-carb tortillas, 8-10 inch size

about 1 cup grated mozzarella or other cheese of your choice

olive oil for misting or brushing the pan

sour cream for serving

salsa for serving

Directions

Coarsely chop the turkey and put in food processor.Pulse a few times until the turkey is shredded apart. (You can probably chop and mix by hand too if you don’t have a food processor.)Add the drained green chiles and cream cheese and pulse a few more times until the mixture is combined.Mist or brush a non-stick frying pan with olive oil (or non-stick spray if you prefer) and turn on heat to medium-low.Spread one-half of a low-carb tortilla with the turkey mixture and lay in the frying pan.Sprinkle a little bit of grated mozzarella over the turkey mixture and use a turner to fold over the quesadilla.Cook about 2 minutes per side, or until the cheese is melted and the outside of the tortilla is nicely browned.Serve hot, with sour cream and salsa on the side if desired.
