Recipe by Tracy X
"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."

(10 inch) whole wheat tortillas
fresh spinach leaves
shredded Cheddar cheese
green onion, chopped
These quesadillas were delicious, only I added salsa inside as well. An easy lunch that my son and I really loved.
Pretty tasty appy, and it gives me another way to eat spinach :)
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!
Very good and the creator is right - super quick! I made this in a snap for lunch. Just made half a quesadilla though as a whole one would be too filling for lunch. I used a 6-inch WW tortilla, also sauteed the spinach along with some button mushrooms as I do love how they compliment each other in a dish. I only used a TEENSY bit of cheese and topped with some medium salsa. YUM! Had all the ingredients in the house and it hit the spot. Thanks for the great recipe idea - but for anyone else, if you like mushrooms - definitely saute some first and add to the spinach!
This was great! I modified it a little bit. I used frozen spinach. I cooked the spinach in the microwave and then added the chili powder and garlic powder to the spinach. I did decrease the garlic powder to 1/4 tsp. I didn't add the green onion. I followed the rest of the procedure in the frying pan. I served it with sour cream. It would have been great with salsa but I didn't have any salsa in the house.
Makes a good and quick lunch. Also would be great served with soup. I left out the chili powder because I didn't think it really went with the other flavors.
This recipe is delicious!
I add red peppers for a little extra flavour and nutrition, but they are delicious either way!
