Spinach Quesadillas

My family gave these cheesy quesadillas oohs and aahs. Remove the spinach from the heat as soon as it wilts so it keeps a little bit of crunch. —Pam Kaiser, Mansfield, Missouri
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 25 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces fresh baby spinach (about 4 cups)
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 1 small tomato, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese or Mexican cheese blend
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat ricotta cheese
  • 6 flour tortillas (6 inches)
  • Reduced-fat sour cream, optional

Directions

  • In a large nonstick skillet, cook and stir first 6 ingredients until spinach is wilted. Remove from heat; stir in cheeses.
  • Top half of each tortilla with spinach mixture; fold other half over filling. Place on a griddle coated with cooking spray; cook over medium heat until golden brown, 1-2 minutes per side. Cut quesadillas in half; if desired, serve with sour cream.
Health Tip: Use whole wheat tortillas and get almost twice the fiber per serving.

    This was easy to make but I thought it was bland. Nothing special about it.

    Good meatless quesadilla. I may add some jalapenos next time for a bit more heat.

    Tasty and easy to fix, though a little bland. May make it again. Remember to use FRESH spinach, not frozen.

    Very good. I used cream cheese because I didn't have any ricotta, and it was great. Will definitely try adding black beans and maybe some chicken next time.
