  • 4 large flour tortillas
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, or a mix)
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional for serving: salsa, sour cream, or guacamole


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and sauté until translucent.
  2. Add mushrooms to the skillet, and cook until they are soft and have released their moisture.
  3. Stir in the spinach and cook until just wilted. Season with salt and pepper, then remove from heat to a separate plate.
  4. Clean the skillet and return it to the stove, increasing heat to medium-high. Drizzle with remaining olive oil.
  5. Place a tortilla in the skillet and sprinkle cheese evenly over one half of the tortilla. Then add a generous amount of the spinach-mushroom mixture on top of the cheese.
  6. Fold the empty half of the tortilla over the filling and press down gently with a spatula. Cook until the bottom of the quesadilla is golden brown.
  7. Carefully flip the quesadilla over and cook until the second side is crispy and the cheese inside is melted.
  8. Transfer the quesadilla to a cutting board and let it sit for a minute before cutting into wedges. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling.
  9. Serve the quesadillas hot with your choice of salsa, sour cream, or guacamole on the side.


  • For a heartier meal, add some cooked chicken or black beans to the filling.
  • Use a mix of different cheeses to get a more complex flavor.
  • To make it extra crispy, you can brush the outside of your tortilla with a bit of oil before cooking.

Enjoy your savory and cheesy Spinach and Mushroom Quesadilla, perfect for a quick lunch, dinner, or a satisfying snack!
