Leftover Turkey Queso Fundido
"Leftover Turkey Queso Fundido – Shredded turkey cooked up with crunchy peppers and onion and a little spice – coated with 2 types of gooey, melted stringy cheese... This is also a great sharing recipe – perfect if you still have guests or visitors round. You can dip some crunchy nachos, or some crudites if you want something a little bit healthier (although, after all that cheese, what does it really matter how healthy it is). Yum!"
Preparation Time15 min
Cooking Time10 min
Cooking MethodGrilling, Skillet
- 75 grams mozzarella cheese, grated
- 75 grams cheddar cheese, grated
- 50 grams cooked shredded turkey breast
- 10 grams jalapeno peppers, sliced
- 100 grams red bell pepper, diced
- 50 grams onion, diced
- 1 pinch paprika, to serve
Pre-heat the oven to 180C. Heat a drizzle of olive oil or low fat cooking spray in a frying pan over a medium high heat.
Add the onion and cook for 2 minutes. Add the red pepper and cook for around 5 minutes, until softened.
Add the turkey and jalapenos and stir everything together well. Cook for a couple of minutes to heat through.
In an ovenproof bowl add a layer of the turkey mixture then around 1/3 cheese. Then add the rest of the turkey mixture and the rest of the cheese. Place in the oven for around 10 minutes until the cheese has melted – don’t overdo it or the cheese will start to harden
Serve with a pinch of paprika sprinkled over the top with nachos or crudites.
