Spinach Quesadillas


Change the kind of cheese used (pepper jack would be fabulous), and try different flavored tortillas for a new taste with very little effort.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Yield: 8-10 servings


  • 16 oz. bag frozen cut leaf spinach, thawed and very well drained
  • 2 cups shredded Havarti or Gruyere cheese
  • 10 flavored or plain flour tortillas


Drain the spinach well, then squeeze it between paper towels to get out as much moisture as possible. On four tortillas, sprinkle half of the cheese. layer on all of the spinach. Then top with remaining cheese. Top each with another tortilla and press gently.

Heat nonstick skillet over medium heat, then cook each quesadilla for about 2 minutes on each side until cheese melts and tortillas are crisp, pressing gently with spatula as they cook. Cut each into six wedges to serve.
