It’s like your favorite spinach artichoke dip…in quesadilla form.
And to answer your question (at least the question I think you might be thinking about right now!)…YES, these are as addictive as the dip can be.
Even my little ‘spinach avoiders’ thought these were great!
There are a couple different ways to make/cook a quesadilla, but these work best in the oven. Mainly because they are so ‘full.’ Here’s why I say that: when you make them on a baking sheet, it’s easy to flip them over half way through the cooking to brown and toast both tortillas by using another cookie sheet and doing a “giant fliparoo.” Picture this…
- Quesadillas are baking on a baking sheet. The top tortilla is browned in just a few minutes.
- You want both tortillas to be brown and crispy. BUT, you don’t want a mess.
- Take out another cookie sheet. Put oven mitts on both hands.
- Pull out the baking sheet with hot quesadillas. Put the other cookie sheet on top and press together. Get your hands in a position that will allow you to flip both cookie sheets together. (Careful, because the one is HOT!)
- Put the flipped over quesadillas back into the oven on the new baking sheet and cook a few more minutes until golden brown and slightly crispy on top.
See what happened there…you end up with perfect quesadillas and not flippage mess 😉
(You could try these in a skillet or on a griddle, but they are ‘heavy’ and ‘full’ and will likely spill out when you flip!)
Here’s how they work…
Chop the ‘chokes.
Mix up the filling.
Combine the chicken, well-drained spinach, cheese.
Mix in the ‘chokes.
Spread evenly onto 4 tortillas. Transfer to lightly greased baking sheet.
Add top tortilla.
Bake a little more.
Transfer to cutting board and cut with pizza cutter.
Devour these delicious quesadillas!

My Walmart is selling 10 pound bags of frozen chicken breasts for 18.80 . This series will be a great way to use the chicken, thank you. I have been thinking I will cook several pounds in my pressure cooker to use in recipes.
