Spinach Quesadillas Recipe

My family gave these cheesy quesadillas oohs and aahs. Give the spinach a quick wilt so it's still a little crisp when it's time to eat. —Pam Kaiser, Mansfield, Missouri
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 small tomato, chopped

  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat ricotta cheese
  • 6 flour tortillas (6 inches)
  • 1/4 cup fat-free sour cream


  • 1. Place the first six ingredients in a large nonstick skillet; cook and stir over medium heat just until spinach is wilted. Remove from heat; stir in cheeses.
