“Very simple and tasty chicken, mushroom, and spinach quesadilla, with melted cheese and spicy ranch sauce. Served with sour cream and salsa for dipping. I serve these as a snack or with salad or soup for lunch or a quick dinner.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over a medium heat. Add the onions and mushrooms and cook until the mushroom water is evaporated and they begin to brown, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Add chicken, cumin, chili powder and oregano and stir until all spices are incorporated. Add spinach, salt and pepper and cook until spinach is wilted, about 2 minutes.
  3. Mix ranch dressing with hot sauce.
  4. Lay 1 tortilla on a flat work surface, spread 2 tablespoons of hot ranch sauce on each tortilla, and sprinkle with 1/4 cup shredded cheese.
  5. Spoon 1/2 chicken and vegetable mixture on top of cheese, then top with an additional 1/4 cup cheese. Top with another flour tortilla.
  6. Heat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray over medium heat. Carefully place 1 quesadilla in pan and cook 3 minutes. Using a large spatula, gently flip quesadilla and cook an additional 3 minutes until lightly browned and cheese is melted. Repeat with second quesadilla.
  7. Slice each quesadilla into quarters. Serve with sour cream and salsa for dipping.
