“Necessity is the mother of invention. A vegetarian friend came to a cookout at my house and I wasn't expecting her, so I had to just throw something together. This was the result. They are not fancy, but I make them now when I get sick of my salad mix. You can add shredded cooked chicken, jalapeno or diced bell peppers, diced tomatoes, mushrooms, bacon, etc...when adding the spinach.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 -4 cups Baby Spinach, salad
  • 2 cups Mexican blend cheese, pre-shredded
  • 4 -6 tortillas
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 -3 teaspoons chili powder
  • 14 cup sour cream, to serve
  • 14 cup salsa, to serve (I used white corn and black bean salsa)


  1. Tear spinach so that it does not all come out in one bite.
  2. Butter one side of a tortilla, drop in hot pan.
  3. Dump torn spinach in along with a handful of cheese. Sprinkle with chili powder.
  4. Fold tortilla in half over ingredients, omelet style.
  5. They are done when both sides are lightly browned and the cheese is melted.
  6. Serve with sour cream, salsa, whatever else you have on hand.
