Turkey and Cranberry Thanksgiving Quesadillas Recipe

Remember that Raspberry Cranberry Sauce I posted last week?? Well, this quesadilla uses that, and leftover Thanksgiving turkey for one fabulous quesadilla!!

I love quesadillas, especially with a quesadilla maker. They cook quickly and before you know it, dinner is ready! You can do traditional Mexican quesadillas or something different like these ones. I love them all!!

I'm a huge fan of sweet and savory together, and this recipe is exactly that. These are cheesy, meaty and flavorful. I love the red onions and basil, they add that extra punch of flavor. So if you're needing another recipe to use up Thanksgiving leftovers, add this to your menu!

Butter one side of a tortilla. Place tortilla buttered side down in a frying pan or quesadilla maker. Layer with cheese, onion, turkey, cranberry sauce and basil, topping again with cheese.
Butter one side of another tortilla, and place on top, buttered side up.
