Oh hey there. How’s your week going? Good? What’s that you say? Your computer doesn’t talk back to you? Alrighty then.
So I need more coffee obviously. But before I refill, let me tell you about this dinner I made a few weeks ago that was done in less than 20 minutes and pretty freaking fantastic, if I do say so myself.
You know how some nights when you get home from the gym, and you’re like really sweaty, and you know that you should just immediately jump in the shower, maybe even with all your gross gym clothes on? But then you sit down on the couch, and you’re all “wow, I really shouldn’t be sitting on this couch in my disgusting sweaty clothes, but I’m just sooooo tired, and also I’m REALLY hungry. And WHY is Kristen Stewart such a little hussie???” (Ok maybe that last part’s just me. What can I say, I just don’t get how you cheat on perfection.)
So anyways, I was having one of those nights, and I needed something quick and easy. I took into account the fact that buffalo sauce on anything makes me a happy camper, as does stuffing things inside of two tortillas and crisping it up in the oven. Or in a vat of oil, either way. But I’m trying to eat healthy these days, guys, stop trying to tempt me! Geez.
Just kidding, you know I love you. Now let’s go get ice cream and talk about how much we hate KStew and her lack of acting skills.
Buffalo Cheeseburger Quesadillas
Cook time: 20 minutes
1 lb lean ground turkey
1 T grill seasoning
1/2 med yellow onion, chopped
1/4 cup Frank’s Buffalo Hot Sauce (or hot sauce of your choice)
1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt (I used Chobani, fat free)
1 cup shredded reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
4 flour tortillas (I use Mission CarbSmart)
Directions: Preheat your oven to 350, and lay two tortillas on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil. In a large sautee pan, spray with cooking spray and heat onions over med-high for about 3 minutes, or until transparent. Add ground turkey and seasoning, and cook until browned, about another 5-7 minutes. Stir in buffalo sauce and yogurt. Spoon mixture onto tortillas, sprinkle with shredded cheese and top with remaining tortillas. Bake in the oven for about 10 minutes, or until tortillas are golden brown and crispy. Cut with a pizza cutter and serve!
These were awesome, and so so easy to throw together. I’m sure they’d be good with blue cheese too, if you’re into that sort of thing. I even baked them while I finally took my much-needed shower. How’s that for multi-tasking?
(Also, I swear I have good hygiene, I’m just really lazy.)
