Another Sunday meal prep is upon us! What better thing to get excited about this week than chorizo quesadillas?! For those who don’t know, chorizo is traditionally a type of spicy pork sausage, but I had ground turkey in the freezer, so that’s what I used ♀️ These quesadillas are tasty nutrition power-houses, full of protein, fiber, and almost 9g of the healthy unsaturated fats!

2. Wipe out pan. Spray again with olive oil spray, then place tortilla in pan. Add turkey mix, cheese, sliced tomato, and lettuce to ½ of tortilla, then fold in half. Cook on medium low heat, flipping often. (Cook about 4-5 mins per side). Remove from pan and enjoy!
