Add something cheesy to your family’s Mexican meal! Enjoy these quesadillas made with Green Giant® Frozen Spinach and flour tortillas – wonderful appetizers ready in 25 minutes.
(8-oz.) container fat-free cream cheese
teaspoon garlic powder
(8-inch) flour tortillas
(9-oz.) pkg. Green Giant™ Frozen Spinach, cooked, squeezed to drain
medium red bell pepper, finely chopped (1 cup)
oz. (1 cup) crumbled feta cheese
In small bowl, combine cream cheese, garlic powder and pepper; blend well. Spread 2 tablespoons cream cheese mixture on each tortilla. Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons each of spinach, bell pepper and cheese on half of each tortilla; fold tortillas in half.
Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place 2 folded tortillas in skillet; cook 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
Remove quesadillas from skillet; place on platter. Cover with foil to keep warm. Repeat with remaining folded tortillas. Cut each quesadilla into 4 wedges. Serve warm.
Roasted red bell peppers from a jar can be used in place of the fresh red bell pepper. Drain and pat dry with paper towel before chopping enough strips to equal one pepper.
For nice crisp quesadillas, thoroughly squeeze the excess moisture from the cooked spinach. After pressing the cooked spinach against the strainer, arrange it on a double thickness of paper towels, roll it up and twist it.
