This is a super quick, easy, and light dinner. This also makes a great snack or appetizer. It looks like a lot of spinach at first, but it shrinks down a lot in no time during cooking. Other types of tortillas can be used if whole wheat isn't available. Serve with salsa and sour cream.

Directions

  1. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Place 1 tortilla onto the skillet. Sprinkle about half the Cheddar cheese evenly over the tortilla. Top with the spinach, green onions, garlic powder, and chili powder. Cover with the remaining Cheddar cheese. Place the second tortilla on top.
  2. Cook until the bottom tortilla starts to develop a bit of color and starts to crisp, about 3 minutes. To flip and cook the other side, slide the quesadilla off the non-stick pan onto a dinner plate, cover with another dinner plate and flip. The crispy tortilla side should now be on top. Slide the quesadilla back onto the pan and cook until the bottom tortilla starts turning crisp, about 3 minutes more. Slide onto a cutting board, and cut into 8 wedges to serve.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

These quesadillas were delicious, only I added salsa inside as well. An easy lunch that my son and I really loved.

I used Whole grain tortilla and used a stainless steel skillet with EVOO because of the leeching problems of non-stick pans. This was so amazing! I made this for lunch today and it was done in minutes, literraly. I used pre-washed spinach as that was all the grocer had. I used the one green onion, chopped and just sprinkled a handful of cheddar each time, and sprinkled the spices, did not measure. This was so delicious and I want some more! But, of course I will have some tomorrow again for a snack or even dinner. Yummy! Thanks for posting, I will make this often as stated and using chicken instead of the spinach for a nice change.

This was awesome!!!! It is so quick to make! I made it for lunch for myself - so I used only one low-carb. rectangular whole wheat wrap, placed the cheese on half the wrap, spinach and spices on top and cheese on top of that. I covered it with the other half of wrap and flipped it when it got crispy on one side. Delicious!
