Greek Quesadillas

Makes 4 Inspired by Better Homes and Gardens Notes: Feel free to use whatever quantities desired of the ingredients below, and substitute or omit ingredients according to your own preferences! These healthy ingredients would also be great in a spinach wrap or a Pita Bread

  • 8 whole wheat tortillas 
  • Fresh spinach (about 2 cups) 
  • One red onion
  • A Jar of  red peppers or sundried tomatoes 
  • Black olives 
  • fat free Mozzarella cheese, shredded (a handful or so per serving) 
  • Feta cheese (a few tablespoons per serving) 
  • Oregano (dried or fresh) 
  • Red pepper flakes (optional) 
Directions:  First (and this is optional)  Chiffonade the spinach. (you can just throw it on there too if you're lazy) Thinly slice the red onion, red peppers, and black olives.

On a plate, place a tortilla. Sprinkle with your desired quantities of spinach, red onion, red pepper, black olives, mozzarella, feta, oregano, and red pepper flakes (if using). Be careful not to overload.

Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat for a few minutes. Place the loaded tortilla on the griddle and place another tortilla on top. Cook until browned on the bottom, then flip and cook until browned on the other side (a few minutes per side). Remove the tortilla and cut into wedges with a pizza cutter. If making several quesadillas at once, you can keep them warm in a 300°F oven.
