Number of Servings: 8


    1 lbs ground turkey
    1 cup diced onion
    1/2 cup diced green pepper
    1/2 cup diced red pepper
    4 tsp minced garlic
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1 teaspoon dried oregano -- crushed
    8 (10 inch) flour tortillas
    8 oz pkgs Monterey Jack cheese - grated


In a large (12-inch) nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, cook turkey with onion and garlic until browned, drain off any drippings and remove to large bowl. Stir peppers, cumin, oregano, jalapeno and cilantro into turkey mixture.
Cut tortillas into quarters. Clean out skillet by wiping with paper towel and heat over medium-high heat. Place one quarter sized tortilla in skillet, sprinkle cheese on the tortilla (Note: the cheese acts like a glue so spread out to the corners of the tortilla), then evenly spread turkey mixture, then sprinkle another layer of cheese, and top with quarter sized tortilla.

Cook on one side until nicely browned (about 2-3 minutes), pressing down occasionally on top tortilla. Flip and brown on other side.

To Freeze: Freeze in a freezer safe container placing wax paper between each quesadilla
