Turkey Quesadilla Burger

In case you haven’t noticed – I love to make burgers. But not typical burgers. I like to get a little wild and crazy with flavors and definitely support bun alternatives! Thus the birth of the Turkey Quesadilla Burger – which uses 2 quesadillas as a bun As quick side dish – I just made some french fries and seasoned them Cumin, Garlic Powder, Chili Powder and Salt (essentially taco seasoning).

My family had to make a considerable leap of faith when I presented them with this plate of food…but it was well received. What kid doesn’t love a quesadilla anyway, right? And it was surprisingly easy to eat – there was a little concern that it was going to be hard to keep together. But once you have the half in your hands, you are good to chow down. But a do suggest using something more than a toothpick – I used regular bamboo skewers that my husband cut in half for me.

You could maybe get fancy and make a jalapeno popper or bacon wrapped jalapeno on the grill while you are making the burger and layer that on the top of the quesadilla – that would be pretty!

If you wanted to take this burger all the way to the border you could nix the tomato, lettuce and onion and add on some fresh made salsa on top (you could use the Salsa recipe from my Salsa Chicken Video!) And then you could serve it up with some yummy Rice & Beans (I have a super easy recipe for that too – in my Homemade on a Weeknight Cookbook – available on Amazon in either Paperback or Kindle versions).
