Quesadillas are one of my favorite things to make for lunch. Not only are they quick and easy, the melty cheese and salsa and savory fillings get me every time. Usually my quesadillas are a simple combination of leftover protein and veggies with some shredded cheese, but when I have time I love making these turkey and mushroom quesadillas. Packed with portabella mushrooms, jalapeno, red onion, and cilantro, these quesadillas really deliver on flavor. For an extra special treat, spread a thin layer of reduced fat cream cheese on the wrap before cooking it - it's delicious!
