Turkey and Hummus Quesadillas

Our family has been on a huge healthy eating kick the last few months. I'm actually really proud of us. We're officially at a point where we're only eating out one day a week on the weekends, and I'm at a place where I feel like I really have a handle on grocery shopping, and getting healthy meals on the table.

For the last six weeks or so, I've been doing the Six Sister's Stuff Menu Plans. I bought them when they were on sale fo half off, and so I think I spent something like $30 bucks for the entire year. They have a ton of different menu plans you can choose from: Standard family, Standard Large Family, Healthy Family, Healthy Large Family, and a Gluten Free Plan. We are doing the Healthy Family Plan which feeds four people. I've gotten a lot of questions about the meals and things over the last several weeks, so I thought that I would share a few recipes over here every now and then, especially the ones that we adapt to our own personal tastes.

We have four people in our home and the healthy family plan easily feeds all four of us, and we usually have leftovers. Our house doesn't have a ton of big eaters though. In fact, I'm probably the biggest eater in our house #RunnersAppetite.

These turkey and hummus quesadillas were one of my favorite meals that we've had so far! They were super delicious and easy to make! I modified them a little bit to fit our family's personal preferences, like swapping whole wheat for white flour tortillas, but you can find the original recipe on their site.

4 Flour Tortillas
4 tbsp Hummus
8oz Deli Turkey
1 cup Spinach
1 cup Shredded Mexican Cheese
Cooking Spray

Spread 1 tablespoon of hummus on one half of each of the tortillas. Then add 2oz of turkey on top of the hummus. Next layer a sprinkle of spinach and a 1/4 cup of cheese on top of the turkey, and then fold the tortilla in half.

In a skillet on medium heat, spray the skillet with cooking spray and then cook the quesadillas on each side for a couple minutes until the cheese is melted. I find that it goes a little faster if you keep the lid on the pan to keep the heat in and help the cheese melt faster!


  1. These quesadillas are perfect as snacks! We are also trying to cut down on eating out. The once a week goal has been challenging but we are getting there. One of the hardest things to give up is skipping cafes for our daily coffee or tea. Good luck to your new goals!

  2. These looks really great. Can I be honest without sounding rude? Hmmm, how do I do this without hurting your feelings. Your blog is sordive meh lately. I used to love coming to this space, your style posts were fun, some of your stories were great, but lately, I feel something is lacking. I will still come around because I think you are awesome!!

    1. I'm sorry that you've been finding the content lacking the last few months. It's been hard to put out the same amount of content while the kids are home from school, so I have to go with what I can do, when I can do it. As far as style posts, those used to be a large focus on my blog 3-4 years ago, but as I've grown and changed, it's not a huge part of who I am right now, and I find it hard to blog about light hearted things like fashion when we have other serious things in our life going on. It's hard for me to strike that balance sometimes. I'm grateful for your longtime readership, and appreciate you sticking with my blog through all it's changes and seasons.
