Tasty Turkey Quesadilla

I'm headed out of town and won't be making any Post-Thanksgiving leftover meals this year so I pulled this one from the archives. It's a yummy way to create a completely different meal using your Turkey Day leftovers! I like topping it with some left over Cranberry Sauce!
  Whole wheat tortillas 2
  Shredded pepper jack cheese 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Cooked turkey 1 Cup (16 tbs), cut into bit sized chunks
  Pinto beans 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Jalapeno 1 , thinly sliced
  Green apple 1⁄2 , thinly sliced
  Thyme 1⁄2 Teaspoon

1. Heat tortilla to dry pan over medium heat and flip it over a few times until it is warmed thru.
2. Add 2 tbsp of cheese over the entire tortilla. On ½ of the tortilla add ½ cup of turkey, ¼ cup of pinto beans, a few jalapeno slices and 3 slices of apple (you'll love it!). Sprinkle with ¼ tsp of thyme. Add another 2 tbsp of cheese and fold tortilla on top of itself.
3. Press down with spatula and flip. Cook until cheese is melted and tortilla is heated thru. Allow a few minutes for quesadilla to cool down before slicing and enjoy!
