Tips

Expert Tips

  • 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.
