When I had this at our local Mexican restaraunt, I enjoyed it so much that I recreated it at home and I think this is a good likeness!This is pure comfort food to me! Feel free to experiment with this recipe! makes 2 for a main dish, 8 for appetizers

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a skillet and place a tortilla on it.
  2. Add half of the cheese to the tortilla.
  3. On top of the cheese, add half of the green onion and spinach.
  4. Sprinkle with half the garlic salt and chili powder.
  5. Top with another tortilla, turn over and fry in skillet until the cheese melts.
  6. Slice into quarters (or 1/8's for appetizers) and serve hot.
  7. Repeat with next 2 tortillas.
  8. Good served with salsa and sour cream!
  9. This would be great served with guacamole on lettuce and refried beans or/and rice.

I collect quesadilla recipes but have not run across anything like these. They were fabulous and very easy to make. I used a colby-jack cheese blend. I served them with homemade salsa and refried beans. Made a delicious light supper for me and my husband. Thanks.

This was Oh so delicious !!! So fast to make for our lunch too. I had sauteed quickly the spinach in a bit of butter and added the garlic salt and Mexican Chili powder into it along with some salt and pepper. I also had some black eyed peas left from another recipe and added them. I used a mix of the Monterey Jack and Sharp Cheddar and it was a really great flavor. I think when I make this again though I will not flip it in the pan I will pop in the oven for just a bit, only cause some insides came out when I flipped it. But it was scrumptious with some guacamole and sour cream. A definite keeper.... Thanks for sharing your recipe Sharon. Made in memory of Sharon's DH

These are sooooooooooooo addicting!!! I had them for lunch 2 days in a row now.. and I think I want them again!!! lol Instead of green onions I used regular onion, as I ran out of green onions making another recipe *ack!*.. but they were SOOO good with regular onion (I sauted the onion before adding to the tortilla!). YUM YUM YUM!!! Thanks Sharon.. this is something I will make OFTEN!!! Great with guacamole and refried beans. I didnt use lettuce as I felt it overpowered the flavor of the spinach.. :-) Thanks again!!!! Keep these great recipes coming sharon!
