This recipe is great for two things: using leftover meat or seafood and making a delicious dinner in just a few minutes. 

During the holidays, I bet turkey quesadillas would be super popular, given how many leftovers there usually are!

It also makes for a pretty light meal, which your body will appreciate after all the holiday feasting. (Easily forgivable feasting, that is)  🙂
