Ingredients for Turkey, Cranberry & Brie Quesadillas
  • For the Topping – 1/2 cup low fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup chopped chives (for topping)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • For the Quesadillas – 1 lb. fully cooked turkey breast meat, shredded
  • 2 cups brie, rind removed
  • 8-8-inch flour tortillas
  • 1 cup sweetened, dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup toasted, chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup chopped chives (for filling)
  1. For the Topping – Place first six ingredients in food processor to make the chive sour cream topping. Process until smooth, scraping occasionally. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  2. For the Quesadillas – Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Spread 1/2 cup brie over each tortilla and then sprinkle 1/2 cup turkey, 1/4 cup cranberries, 2 tablespoons walnuts and 2 tablespoons chives over the brie. Place second tortilla over top of turkey-cranberry mixture.
  4. Place quesadillas on baking sheets and bake at 350 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes until cheese is melted. (Alternatively, you may cook quesadilla in large, lightly greased frying pan over medium high heat 4 to 5 minutes per side until cheese is melted, if desired.)
  5. Cut each quesadilla into 4-8 wedges and serve immediately with chive sour cream topping.
