      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!
