What’s the Quesadillio? — Cheddar, Apple, Spinach Quesadillas and other simple, nutritious and kid-friendly ideas


Cheddar, Apple, Spinach Quesadillas

  • 2 small corn tortillas, preferably ones with at least 2 grams of fiber per serving
  • 3 tablespoons sharp cheddar cheese shreds (you can eyeball it...a few small handfuls)
  • 6 thin apple slices (about half of a small, cored apple)
  • 1 small handful of fresh baby spinach, washed, dried and any thick stems removed
  • Olive oil mister or cooking spray
  • Kosher salt, to taste


Cheddar, Apple, Spinach Quesadillas

Heat a small sauté pan over medium heat and spray with an olive oil mister or cooking spray.

Add 1 corn tortilla and layer half of the cheese shreds, the apple slices and the spinach. Cover evenly with the remaining cheese and the second tortilla.

Use your hand or a spatula to press down firmly on the top tortilla to help it all stick together.

Spray the top tortilla with additional olive oil or cooking spray to lightly, evenly coat.

Allow the quesadilla to cook over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes until the bottom tortilla is golden and crisp. Gently flip the quesadilla over in the pan and continue cooking for another 1 to 2 minutes until the second side is golden and the cheese is melted throughout.

Remove from pan and place on a plate or cutting board. Season with Kosher salt, if desired. Allow to cool for 1 minute before cutting into wedges.
