Alright, people. If these leftovers don’t go away, we will have to do something about it. We have to buck up. We have to hold our head high. We have to take charge. We have to stick it to the turkey and quesadilla-ize it.

Also? These quesadillas are the reason for my ginormous love for Thanksgiving leftovers.

BTW, HI!! So long no see! <<< That’s how my Mama says it, with a deep Eastern European accent. ♥

Cranberry Turkey Quesadillas - Sweet, tart cranberry sauce and tender turkey meat tucked inside melty, cheesy quesadillas.

Two unexpected things happened to me last week, and I feel it’s only right to tell you. It all happened so fast and at the time I wasn’t even sure of what was actually occurring. I’m still trying to process it all and come to an answer and a solution.

First. My blog/website/this-place didn’t publish my Spiced Apple Cider Vinegar Cranberry Sauce recipe. :-/ Damn you, internets! Thanksgiving Day came and went, and no cran sauce recipe… grrrr.

But. But then. Then, this happened.

If maybe for a moment, it made me forget how angry I was with my ‘puter. And the www. Hopefully, I will get it all sorted out and have that recipe publish itself before Christmas, but until then… Let’s start here.

While this isn’t the hottest quesadilla you might ever look at, once you taste it, you’re going to wonder how you ever lived life without it.

Though we’re only using like 4 ingredients, OHMAHGUSH, you’re going to want to attack this, face first.

We all know that cranberry sauce and turkey go together like Cheech and Chong, but add some o’ that provolone cheese and a crunchy flour tortilla, and things start to get real serious up in hurr.

If you don’t accomplish anything else in this day and/or life, make these ‘dillas. Stat.

P.S. Coolest thing? If you don’t have turkey meat, use chicken. If you’re out of chicken, use ham. If there’s no ham, make it meatless!

P.S.S. I’m not going to list the amount of ingredients you should use because this recipe is pretty straight forward – use as much or as little as you want.

P.S.S.S. Don’t use less than 3 slices of cheese.

Okay. Bye!

ENJOY!
