This Healthy Turkey Burger Quesadilla combines everything you love about a turkey burger with all the goodness of a cheesy quesadilla.

Quesadillas are a staple for me. At least twice a week I take whatever leftovers I have and turn them into a quick and cheesy quesadilla. Not only does it satisfy my cheese cravings, it's a great way to re-purpose leftovers so I don't feel like I am eating the same thing over and over. Per my normal routine, last week I took some leftover turkey burgers and they made the most delicious quesadillas.

The turkey burgers are packed with cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, and coriander to add some Tex-Mex flavors. You could add some chili pepper or cayenne as well if you want them spicy. Then they are made into super thin patties and quickly cooked. They are wrapped in a low carb wrap or tortilla and topped with plenty of pico de gallo and shredded cheddar cheese. Finally they until crispy and topped with creamy sliced avocado. It's an easy healthy lunch that's ready in under 20 minutes and one everyone will want to eat.
