Five Cheese Spinach Quesadillas

Mouth-watering quesadillas stuffed with four kinds of gooey, irresistible cheese and baby spinach. Not only are they kid-friendly but they take all of ten minutes to make!

They’re perfect for a busy weeknight, after school snack or lunch. Plus they’re a good way to get your kids to eat their veggies! Spinach surrounded by gooey, melting cheese is a win-win.

Right now at Target you can save on Kraft cheese products with their “Weekly Wow” deal of the week. Five Kraft cheese products for only ten dollars. You can’t go wrong at that price! Good until 9/20/2014.

I have a grown-up version and a kid-friendly version. The grown-up version is with spicy, garlic spinach and the kids version is plain – just cheese and lots of spinach for young taste buds and picky eaters. The five cheeses include Kraft triple cheddar and Mexican cheddar and jack.

You can add leftover chopped chicken or rotisserie chicken, leftover taco meat, more veggies or serve these alongside soup or chili. They’re pretty great for breakfast too with eggs. . .or not.

What I know is this: I love having Kraft cheese around!

For tucking into quesadillas, grilled cheese, nachos, topping my burgers and hot sandwiches and simply eating hand to mouth.

Five Cheese Spinach Quesadillas

(makes 2)

1 – 2 teaspoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, sliced
5 packed cups of fresh baby spinach leaves
a couple pinches of ground cayenne pepper
salt and fresh black pepper
4 (8-inch) flour tortillas
Kraft Triple Cheddar Cheese
Kraft Mexican Jack/Cheddar
sour cream or salsa, for serving, optional

In a medium frying pan heat enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan over medium-low heat.

Add the garlic and spinach. Season with a couple pinches of cayenne, salt and pepper.

Stir until the spinach starts to wilt. Remove from heat.

Heat another large frying pan over medium heat and toast a tortilla until golden brown on one side. Remove from the pan and sprinkle the toasted side all over with the triple cheddar.

Toast another tortilla. Flip it over and sprinkle all over with the Mexican cheese, then top with half the spinach and the first tortilla, cheese side down. Cook, turning so both sides get toasted.

Repeat to make the second quesadilla.

Cut them like a pie into triangles and serve with sour cream or salsa.
