This Spinach and Chicken Quesadilla is super delicious and is great to make for lunch! If you love Quesadilla’s and you want something different then you should try this recipe!

This quesadilla goes for a great Lunch. The Spinach gives you some greens as this recipe is geared for if you are on Weight Watchers or even a Keto Diet. I love making these quesadilla’s because they taste just like the ones I get at my favorite Mexican restaurant. If I want a quick lunch to throw together I make these a lot. I tweak my quesadilla’s and add my favorite toppings such as Corn and Fat-Free Greek Yogurt. These can also be a great lunch idea for kids.

If you Love Mexican Food and you want your own homemade Quesadilla recipe then I strongly recommend trying this one out! If your having a Mexican themed party these quesadilla’s would be a good fit for that special occasion.

INGREDIENTS FOR SPINACH AND CHICKEN QUESADILLA’S:

  • Corn: I love lots of corn so I probably used about 5 Tablespoons
  • Spinach: I used enough just to sprinkle on top of all my other ingredients
  • Black Beans: I used about 3 Tablespoons of Black Beans as I love the taste and flavor of the beans on my quesadilla.

HOW TO MAKE A SPINACH AND CHICKEN QUESADILLA:

First, you want to cut up your chicken breast into bite sized pieces and then cook them in a pan over medium heat until there is no more pink.

Set aside Chicken. Once your chicken is cooked set aside and get out a skillet and add some oil onto the skillet.

Fry Tortillas. Take one tortilla and place it on skillet and fry on medium heat until its a brown.

Start Placing toppings. I started with enough chicken to cover the bottom, then added some black beans, corn, greek yogurt, and then the spinach.

Place second tortilla on top of Quesadilla. I put my second tortilla on top of my quesadilla and flipped over so that way the other side can get crisp and brown.

While Frequently checking the bottom, once you feel like it is done remove from skillet and on to a plate.

Know you are ready to cut Quesadilla in fours and Eat!

Notes:

Use your own judgement on how much ingredients to use as this is no exact measurement. Feel free to substitute out the Spinach or had some cheese.
