Lime Turkey Quesadillas
This recipe was sent to us by Filipa, one of our online blogger mums. Her challenge was to cook a summer family meal using turkey for under £10. Here's what she thought:

What we thought:
These make a great casual summer meal - pile them on a platter in the middle of the table with some salsa and let everyone get stuck in! 
Essential Ingredient:
Turkey Breast Fillets
Ingredients
400g fresh turkey, diced into 1cm strips

1 lime, juice and zest

3 cloves garlic, crushed

1 teaspoon honey

1 red chilli, finely chopped (optional)

1 large red onion, sliced

2 peppers, sliced

8 flour tortilla wraps

300ml sour cream / cheese

50g (about a good handful) of fresh coriander, chopped

Salt and pepper to taste

Two tablespoons sunflower oil for frying



To serve:
Serve with salsa.
Light, low in fat and a lovely fresh zingy flavour.
Method
  1. Combine the turkey, lime, garlic, honey and chilli. Season to taste. This can be done the night before and left in the fridge to improve the flavour of the meat
  2. Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Put the turkey, peppers and onion in the pan and cook on a high heat for around 8-10 minutes stirring frequently until the turkey is brown, golden and cooked through. The vegetables will be slightly soft but still have some crunch. Don't overcook the turkey or it will become dry. Keep the heat high so there's no moisture left in the pan
  3. Take four dinner plates (make sure they are slightly bigger than your tortilla wraps) and place one tortilla on each plate. Spread half the sour cream evenly over the four wraps. Distribute the turkey and vegetables evenly over the sour cream. Spread the remaining half of the sour cream over the remaining four wraps and place each of them on top of the turkey and vegetables pressing lightly
  4. Heat a large frying pan with no oil. Toast each of the quesadillas lightly for around a minute on each side. Cut each of them into 6 slices. Serve straight away with salsa if you like.
