Chicken, Spinach & Artichoke Quesadillas

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…

  1. Quesadillas are baking on a baking sheet. The top tortilla is browned in just a few minutes.
  2. You want both tortillas to beĀ brown and crispy. BUT, you don’t want a mess.
  3. Take out another cookie sheet. Put oven mitts on both hands.
  4. 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!)
  5. 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 šŸ˜‰

(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.

Flip.

Bake a little more.

Transfer to cutting board and cut with pizza cutter.

Devour these delicious quesadillas!
