Spinach & Artichoke Quesadillas

IMG_4353It has finally happened. My daughter has decided to become a vegetarian. I asked her to find me some recipes she might enjoy and she gave me this one from her pinterest. The recipe was found on domesticsuperhero.com. After visiting the farmers market in the morning and buying some local artichokes, we replaced the canned artichoke portion of the recipe with fresh ones boiled until tender.


1/4 TBS oil

8 ounces artichoke hearts drained and chopped (or fresh boiled until tender)

6 ounces baby spinach leaves

4 ounces cream cheese

1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

1/4 cup parmesan. shredded

8 tortillas


Warm each tortilla on a skillet for 1 minute on each side.

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add in the artichoke pieces and cook for 1 minute, add the spinach until wilted, turning often. Mix in the cheeses until melted. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from heat.

Spread 1/4 cup on 4 tortillas, than top with remaining tortillas. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and heat filled tortillas until desired crispness.
