Ooey-Gooey Delicious: Two-Cheese Quesadillas Recipe With Spinach

It happens to all of us: You stare into the fridge and have no idea what to make with the odds and ends you have on hand. That’s when we turn to a classic favorite — the quesadilla. They’re cheesy, delicious and so easy to customize. It was a fridge clear-out that inspired our Two-Cheese Quesadilla recipe, but it turns out, the combination was so tasty, we keep coming back to it again and again!

It all starts with pepperjack cheese and feta. The mix has the perfect hints of spice and tang, plus melts perfectly. Then we threw in spinach for a pop of color and plenty of fresh flavor. Scallions give it the right amount of oniony goodness, but you could also use shallots if you have extra on hand. 

We like to make our Two-Cheese Quesadillas on a sheet pan in the oven — that way, you can cook up a whole batch at once to feed a hungry crowd. If you’re making dinner for one, you can also adjust the recipe and make it in a skillet on the stovetop. 

Top it with our Pico de Gallo, or for a total splurge, add dollops of our Mexican Street Corn Dip. Let us know what you think in the comments!
