Recipe: California Smoked Turkey Club Quesadilla

This quesadilla is chock full of flavor… a great little recipe to make for a weeknight meal.. quick and easy and so delicious!

All a California Smoked Turkey Club Quesadilla is .. is a Turkey Club sandwich made with a flour tortilla instead of bread…. and instead of the usual turkey breast meat… smoked turkey breast from the deli…. Add a little avocado and some spicy ranch dressing…. and you have yourself a turkey club sandwich with a twist.. and a great twist it is.


You can use a plain or flavored mayo instead of the spicy ranch dressing… but the spicy ranch gives it a little zip… a really good addition… try my homemade Spicy Ranch Dressing recipe… it’s easy and so good.

Need tips on how to pick out an avocado and how to store them? See my post All About Avocados.

I highly recommend that you chop the bacon, avocado and tomato… it’s easier to eat… and cut the quesadilla into pieces…

I left off quantities… quantities will depend on the size of the tortilla you are using and personal tastes… I used 10 inch tortillas, I used about 6 slices of thinly sliced deli smoked turkey, half a Roma tomato, half an avocado, 2 slices of bacon, and about ¾ cup of finely shredded Jack cheese. This made 1 large quesadilla that I cut into 6 wedges…. This will feed about 2 people for a light lunch…

I usually make 2-3 quesadillas for the two of us for supper… we end up with leftover wedges.. and we store them and eat them as leftovers… Warren likes them cold .. I reheat them quickly in the microwave for me.

I have a Quesadilla Maker… it wasn’t expensive and makes making quesadillas a snap…I highly recommend them.

Hope you enjoy this twist on the old classic Turkey Club!

Recipe: California Smoked Turkey Club Quesadilla

All you need:

Flour tortillas
Spicy Ranch Dressing (homemade or store bought)
Smoked turkey, thinly sliced (from the deli)
Avocado, peeled and chopped
Roma tomatoes, chopped
Finely shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Smoked bacon, cooked and chopped

All you have to do:

Layer the ingredients on a tortilla, starting with the turkey and ending with the shredded cheese. Lay a tortilla on top and place in a tortilla maker and lower the top… follow any manufacturer’s instructions.

You can also make these on a griddle. Use smaller tortillas, so they can be flipped easier.

When the cheese has melted and the tortilla is lightly browned, remove to a cutting board. Allow to cool for about 3-5 minutes. Use a pizza cutter or a sharp knife to cut into wedges.
