It won’t be long before you have to think about what do with Thanksgiving leftovers. If you live in Canada, that might mean this very week.
Cooked turkey joins pepper Jack cheese and green onions in a delicious quesadilla. Spicy cranberry salsa is a colorful and yummy seasonal accompaniment. But really, this meal or snack is good any time of year.
