Ingredient Substitution
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.
Kitchen Tip
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.
