Mediterranean Quesadilla Recipe

What You'll Need:

  • 2 (8 inch) tortillas – They’re the foundation of our quesadilla.
  • 1 cup of shredded Mozzarella (feel free to swap for Monterey Jack or Kasseri) – For that gooey, cheesy goodness.
  • ¼ cup of crumbled Feta – Adds that tangy kick.
  • ¼ cup of baby spinach – For a bit of green and freshness.
  • ¼ cup of sliced artichoke hearts – Bringing a bit of texture and flavor.
  • 2 tablespoons of thinly sliced sun-dried tomatoes – They pack a flavor punch!
  • 2 tablespoons of sliced Kalamata olives – For that briny, salty taste.
  • 1 tablespoon of Romesco sauce (optional) – If you’re feeling adventurous and want a bit of a spice kick.

Directions:

  1. Prep It: Crank your stove up to medium heat and throw a tortilla onto the pan. It’s showtime!

  2. Layer It: Start the flavor party by sprinkling half of your chosen cheese directly onto the tortilla in the pan. Follow it up with the crumbled feta, spreading it out evenly. Now, it's time for the colors and textures - layer on the baby spinach, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, and Kalamata olives. Feeling bold? Drizzle some Romesco sauce over everything for that extra zing.

  3. Cheese It Up: Add the rest of your cheese on top, because let’s be honest, one can never have too much cheese.

  4. Top It Off: Cap it all off with the second tortilla. It’s like building a delicious cheese fort.

  5. Cook It: Let it sizzle and cook until the bottom tortilla is turning a beautiful golden brown - it usually takes about 2 to 4 minutes. Give it a gentle, confident flip and cook the other side until it matches - golden and crispy, with the cheese all melted and gooey inside.

  6. Enjoy It: Slice that beauty into wedges and dive in! Whether you serve it as is or with a side of your favorite salsa or sour cream, you’ve got yourself a meal that’s sure to impress.

And there you have it - a Mediterranean Quesadilla that’s easy, quick, and unbelievably tasty. Perfect for any day of the week, and sure to become a new favorite!
