I also think this is a delicious recipe--& I agree that the chili powder is very necessary for flavor! It does, however need a great dipping sauce so I mixed up some fat free refried beans, fat free sour cream & salsa--then added some cumin. I used a low fat mozzarella cheese (about 1/3 cup--and I made a "half moon" one serving quesadilla!). I had no green onions so I sauteed my fresh spinach w/ jarred minced onion. Thank you for sharing; I certainly want to experiment more w/ this!
The seasonings in these quesadillas really, really made them. We served ours with "wholly guacamole" and "wonderful salsa" from 'zaar and, sorry to say, those recipes completely overshadowed this one but the whole ensemble was a huge, resounding hit! We'll be back for more!
I loved the flavour of the garlic salt and chili powder with the cheese and spinich - do not omit these spices! They added more to the dish that I could have imagined. Very quick and wonderful! Made for PRMR Holiday Special
This recipe is amaaaazing, it deserves more than 5 stars. Simple, fast, easy, healthy and most importantly delicious, what more could one ask for. My family loved it, it's a definite keeper. Next time I'll try it with homemade wholemeal tortillas. Thank you so much for posting this one.
Try using a pizza cutter or kitchen shears to cut these, makes it much easier! I would not have thought to use chili powder, thanks so much for the recipe! (Simple, yet, refined. LOL)
I make these all the time. Sometimes I use black beans instead of spinach.
I loved this! I devoured this for a quick lunch and followed this exactly. I had a ton-o-spinach to use up, (fresh) so I put the whole quesadilla together. And quickly too! I scanned the recipe quickly, and then read the steps 1 by 1. Somehow I didn't notice that you had to cook the spinach. Oh no! I just put the spinach leaves on top of the cheese. Then put all the ingredients on. Took it to the table, sat down and enjoyed every single taste. I went back to write the review and to my surprise I noticed Sharon suggests you should cook! the spinach. Oh my. Well I didn't ~ and I can tell you that this is one of the best quesadillas I have had! So if you are like me, and miss the fact you should cook the spinach like I did, then you will be ok. I promise! Thank you Sharon as always, a 100% great recipe. January 2009.
We really liked these even my 3 yo ate them. the 4 yo noticed the spinach so he didn't like them anymore. I had a little trouble spreading the spinach out so it wasn't in clumps. I used about a half teaspoon or so of butter and it made a difference. Thank you so much for a great recipe.
Absolutely delicious and so effortless. Great flavors. What more could you ask for. Thanks Sharon
