Because of my busy schedule sometimes I just can’t seem to find the right time to go food shopping. Lucky for me Kings Food Market recently has launched their “Instacart” program which delivers groceries right to your door. I wanted to try this service out for my Flat Bread Quesadillas recipe which is the perfect snack to serve at halftime if you are hosting a SuperBowl party. I was surprised how fast the food was delivered, on time and with a smile. The quesadillas and guacamole came out delicious as well. Try out this service to see how it can improve your busy schedule.
Ingredients: (Ground Turkey and Avocado Flat Bread Quesadillas)
- 1 tablespoon Kings Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1 medium white onion
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2-3 scallions, ends removed and thinly sliced
- 1 cup Organic Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
- 8 soft flat bread
- 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
Directions: Chop the onion
Dice the garlic
Chop the green onions
In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat, add garlic, onion, and cook for a couple of minutes until soft (or gold). Add ground turkey and cook until no longer pink.
Stir in spices, scallions, and beans. Cook for an additional few minutes (5 minutes). Set aside to cool.
In the mean time prepare the guacamole
- 2 avocados, peeled and pit removed
- 1/4 cup of minced red onion
- 1/2 cup minced fresh cilantro
- 1/4 cup jalapeño peppers diced in very small pieces
- 1/4 cup of scallions, ends removed and thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup lime juice (juice from one lime)
- salt to taste
Directions: Mash the avocados
Chop the red onion, green onion, cilantro and jalapeno into very small pieces.
Mix all ingredients with the avocado, season with salt, and add lime juice.
Set up an assembly line: heat a large frying pan and spray with cooking spray, toast each side of the flat bread for 2 minutes (or until is golden and cooked) and transfer to a plate. Place 2 spoons of the turkey filling on one half of the bread and sprinkle with cheese. Cover the other half and gently press. Repeat as many times as needed to complete the entire plate. Serve the quesadillas cut in half with a side of guacamole.
This is an excellent snack to serve during halftime for the upcoming SuperBowl game. Enjoy!
