Slightly Tropical Quesadilla


I still have more mushrooms and frozen spinach. I still had those extra tortillas that I had made the other day. So I put eerything together like I did with the pizza. Cheese, then spinach, then mushroom. Then in comes the tropical aspect of this meal. Chopped pineapple bits. Yup! You wouldn't necessarily find it paired with spinach or mushroom in a quesadilla, but if it's paired Canadian bacon and baked into a pizza, heck...why not? I brought out ol' Georgie for this one. Cook both sides at once.

Makes 2 quesadillas



Slightly Tropical Quesadilla

4 taco-sized tortillas
2 c shredded mozzarella
1 c spinach  - from frozen
1/2 c chopped mushrooms
1/3 c Pineapple bits - roughly chopped

Take a tortilla and sprinkle 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella. Next layer the 1 cup of the spinach, followed by half the mushroom and pineapple. Top with another tortilla

Do this to make the second quesadilla.

Preheat your skillet. When hot enough, place the quesadilla flat. Cook for roughly 5-10 minutes until the cheese is melted. Then flip and cook the other side for another 5-10 minutes.

Serve warm.

I am sure the pineapple pieces really give these quesadillas the "something special" factor :D

everything with pineapple tastes good..

I agree with peachkins - you can't go wrong with pineapple (though my husband thinks its sacrilege to put it on a pizza). 'Slightly tropical' is enough to warm me up!

a daring combo! Way to go for it.

Once again this includes my favorite pizza toppings ;) I've never had that combo in a quesadilla but it sounds good.

I wonder if you paired some jalapenos or something in there to give it the sweet and spicy taste--that might be good.

I never tried making quesadillas until a couple of years ago and could have kicked myself for waiting so long. Yours looks absolutely gorgeous and I can only imagine how good it tastes. I love the tropical twist with the pineapple. Amazing! Thanks!

I came here to thank you for Sunday and your terrific effort at StirIT28, but I leave here hungry for quesadillas. How'd that happen? GREG
