Turkey and avocado quesadillas. Recipe with and without Thermomix ideal for dinner watching a movie

I do not know if the same thing happens to you, but every time I try to get less complicated for dinner, although trying to vary the recipes to not always eat the same thing, a task that seems easy but it is not at all. The bao buns were last week's discovery and this recipe for turkey and avocado quesadillas was our turn. We loved them!

Actually the ingredients of the filling are a bit indicative, for example you can use chicken if you prefer or vary the amount of avocado and lettuce according to your tastes. These quesadillas do not contain cheese, but I think that next time I will add it because the result may be even more attractive.

How to make avocado and turkey quesadillas

Difficulty: easy
  • Total time 30 m
  • Elaboration 30 m
  • Repose 1 hour

With a kitchen robot, we crush the oil, ginger, mint, garlic, salt, grated lime peel and lime juice. If we do it with Thermomix, we chop 10 sec / speed 7. We put this marinade in a large bowl with the turkey breast, mix with a spatula and leave to marinate for 1 hour.

After this time, the more the better, we cook the contents of the bowl in a frying pan until the turkey is done. If we do it with Thermomix, 5 min / 120º / reverse turn / spoon speed. We remove it to a bowl and reserve. We put the avocado, salt, pepper and lemon juice in a tall glass and crush it. If we use the Thermomix we cut 30 sec / speed 5.

To assemble the quesadillas, we divide the wheat pancakes in four and lightly pass them through the pan. We place half the pieces of pancakes distributed on plates and on them we distribute the avocado, the turkey and the lettuce. Cover with the rest of the pieces of pancakes and serve.

With what to accompany the turkey and avocado quesadillas

This recipe for turkey and avocado quesadillas, with and without Thermomix, are ideal for a casual dinner with friends. I advise you to toast the wheat tortillas at the last moment, just before filling them, so that they do not harden too much when you go to serve them.
