These Spinach Quesadillas are gooey, cheesy and incredibly easy to prepare. From stove to table in less than 5 minutes!



  • 3 TB olive oil
  • 8 oz. fresh baby spinach
  • 2 large flour tortillas, burrito size
  • 16 oz oaxaca or monterey jack cheese, shredded


  1. In a large skillet on medium-low heat, place 1 TB olive oil and the spinach. Cook for about 1 minute, tossing constantly to ensure even cooking. Once it darkens and wilts, remove to a bowl or plate.
  2. Place another TB of olive oil in the skillet and a tortilla. Move it around a little to soak up the oil. Spread about half of the shredded cheese on half of the tortilla, then sprinkle a small amount on the other half. Top the cheese with about half of the spinach. Cook for 30 seconds – 1 minute until the cheese starts to melt.
  3. Fold the tortilla over on itself, like an omelet. Cook for 30 seconds, then flip and cook for another minute.
  4. Remove to a plate and cut into fourths. Repeat the process with the remaining oil, spinach, tortilla and cheese. Enjoy!
