Nutrition Facts: View label


1 8-inch whole-wheat tortilla
2 Tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese
2 Tablespoons cranberry sauce or dried cranberries
2 Tablespoons chopped or shredded cooked turkey
⅓ cup spinach


  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Lightly grease and preheat a medium skillet over medium heat (300 degrees F in an electric skillet). Lay a tortilla flat on the skillet.
  3. Sprinkle cheese evenly over one half of the tortilla. Add cranberry sauce, turkey and spinach. Fold empty half of tortilla over filling. 
  4. Cover and cook on each side for 2 to 3 minutes, or until outside is golden brown and inside is heated through.
  5. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.


  • Substitute beans, tofu, or other cooked meat for the turkey.
  • For extra flavor, add a dash of cayenne pepper or chili powder before folding the quesadilla in half.


We had a quesadilla taste test, with a class of adults, using this recipe and the Pear Quesadilla recipe, and it was a tie -- everyone liked both recipes.  We used chicken instead of turkey, but this recipe was still a big hit.  Even people who HATED spinach liked it (I did use fresh spinach, so that made a difference)!

Another awesome recipe -- thanks Food Hero!
