This Curried Turkey, Mushroom, and Black Bean Quesadillas recipe is low in fat, high in protein, and an easy, healthy addition to any family weeknight meal!  Make these in under 30 minutes, and allow for an easy clean up with Pam Cooking Spray!

In my house, when it’s time for some Quesadilla action, I love to make them with a variety of vegetables and spices–you know, a unique spin on your typical boring, meat and cheese Quesadilla.  Sure your kids may love a simple cheese Quesadilla (EVERY night of the week), but for more adult flairs, basic quesadillas may prove underwhelming!  Don’t be afraid to experiment with a an assortment of ingredients, and combinations to make your quesadillas as tasty as you like!

Although Quesadillas are a no-brainer, the cheesy, greasy after-mess they leave behind can be a little frustrating!  You know, scrubbing the cooked on cheese, soaking your pans, so instead of browning my tortillas in butter I used Pam Cooking Spray and the clean up was a breeze!  I also loved that Pam has ZERO calories, and doesn’t weigh down my quesadillas like butter–which can often make them greasy, no bueno!

For these quesadillas, I added a large red onion, and a few garlic cloves to my turkey meat, also the perfect amount of curry, cumin, and turmeric to kick the flavors up a notch!  I also added baby bella mushrooms, and black beans and these were not only delicious, but just two quesadillas filled me up!  Feel free to add whatever your favorite cheese is–I used a little Mexican cheese blend for flavor.  Enjoy!

With all the planning that goes into putting together the perfect dish using Pam Cooking Spray is a sensible way to save time in the kitchen. When you use Pam you spend less time cleaning up the kitchen, allowing for more time to be spent with the ones you love. Bonus, Pam Cooking Spray leaves *99% less residue than leading brands of margarine or bargain brands, so your dishes will turn our great, and you will spend less time cleaning up!

*vs. leading cooking sprays (except olive oil) after spraying on glass bakeware, baking at 400 F for 30 minutes, cooling, and then washing in standard home dishwasher with detergent and repeating 4 times.
