At Thanksgiving time it's easy to pile leftover turkey — along with all of the other leftovers — into a delicious sandwich. During the rest of the year, get creative when using leftover turkey. This recipe makes a tasty turkey quesadilla. The turkey is tossed with salsa verde and placed on top of two cheese-filled tortillas. More cheese, cilantro, and green onions finish the pie. The dish is broiled in the oven until the ingredients are warmed and the tops of the tortillas are crisp.
