Chicken and Spinach Quesadillas

Chicken and Spinach Queso Quesadillas from 5DollarDinners.com

I love chicken. I love spinach. I love tortillas. And cheese, oh how I love thee.

(I miss cheese. It won’t be long until I get to rekindle my relationship with cheese.  Story is, I suspect Tyler has a dairy intolerance, so I don’t eat much of it these days.)

    Oh, cheese!! I too, have a love affair w/ cheese – every meal and snack usually has cheese in it somehow!! It’s so hard to pick a favorite, but if I must, I will say Colby/Jack because it can be use in almost anything!

    My favorite quesadilla: I usually keep grilled chicken on hand and like to have it in a flour tortilla w/ spinach, roasted red peppers and a mexi-blend cheese!

    Fave quesadilla would have to be bacon, apple and cheddar.
    I also add caramelized onions if I have some made up in the fridge.
    That combo is fantastic together.

    I love all quesadillas! Show me a new recipe and I’ll devour it. Maybe it’s because I love cheese!

    I am a fan of any cheese- apples or crusty bread with brie, this amazing organic creamy white cheddar that makes the best mac and cheese, marscapone added to homemade marinara or risotto to be creamy goodness, a nice bite of sharp cheddar as a snack,,,, oddly enough, despite my (and my hubbys) obvious love affair with cheese, I have one son who detests cheese- for years, he would pull it off pizza… now, after much coaching, we’ve gotten him to at least eat some melted cheeses…

    Best quesadilla: 1-2 Chicken breasts, small dice, cooked with diced peppers and onions and seasoned with chili powder, s&p, cumin, and a little cayenne… mexican blend shredded cheese… the peppers and onions really help extend the chicken- especially with 2 teen boys and a hubby!

    My favorite quesadilla: Mexican melting cheese, black bean, caramelized onion on a flour tortilla (homemade, if possible!)

  12. Rebecca says

    My favorite quesadilla is chicken and cheese, I like steak too. The only thing I wouldn’t like in a quesadilla is mushrooms.

  13. Debra says

    My daughter’s boyfriend won’t eat anything with cheese in it. Can you imagine?!?!?!? And I gave them a quesadilia maker for Christmas. Lucky me….who lives on cheese….I’m getting it back some day.

    my favorite quesadilla is beef tips with the white mexican melting cheese with lettuce,guacamole and sour cream.
