Have you recovered from the holidays? We got one down and the big one is next. Honestly it shocks me on how fast time is going, it’s crazy!! I am really not ready for Christmas. No one told me what they wanted, so it makes it doubly hard to shop this year. Oh well. So how was your Thanksgiving? Did you make lots of goodies? Do you have leftover turkey? Well if you do I have the most awesome recipe for you today!
This is my Turkey Cranberry Fiesta Quesadilla. Oh my gosh it is soooooooooo good! It’s made with leftover turkey, cream cheese and Ocean Spray Cranberry Fiesta Salsa. Have you heard of Ocean Sprays Cranberry Fiesta Salsa? It is darn good stuff!
Ocean Spray sent me a jar of their salsa to try out and I couldn’t wait to try it. I opened up, mixed it with a spoon and took a big taste of it. WOW!!! That gave me the kick in the pants I needed. I was shocked on how spicy it was. Woohwee!!!! It’s good! Really I was shocked. You don’t even get it, I took a big spoonful and I mean a big one! I was not expecting that! But its spicy in a good way. I really love it! It’s made with cranberries,apples, jalapeno, tomatoes and spices. It’s chunky, sweet and savory. Really the salsa isn’t that spicy, but it wasn’t what I expected and I really do love it.
I thought the salsa would be a compliment to turkey, after all turkey and cranberry goes so well together. I also added just a little bit of cream cheese to make it creamy and to tame down the salsa a bit. This was the perfect lunch and filled me up! I love simple, flavorful meals like this!! Plus it only takes a couple of minutes to prepare! You just have to love that. But since I made this at lunch time, the photos did not turn out great which really irritates me! Arrrrr…
As a little side dish, I also had some more Ocean Spray Cranberry Fiesta Salsa with some chips. I think the first day I opened it I went through almost half the jar. So not only does the salsa taste good with turkey it is also good for dipping. The salsa would be a perfect little kick to add to your holiday table.
