In a small bowl, combine the cranberry sauce, salsa and lime juice. Set aside
Sprinkle 1/4 cup cheese over each of 4 tortillas; top each with 1/2 cup turkey, 2 tablespoons of cranberry/salsa and another tortilla.
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Place 1 quesadilla in pan; cook 5 minutes on each side or until tortillas are crisp and cheese is melted. Set aside and keep warm.
