Fast & Easy Dinner: Grilled Chicken and Spinach Quesadillas


If you've never made quesadillas on the grill, I highly recommend you do so this evening. When charred over an open fire, the tortillas get a nice smoky flavor and delightful crispy texture.

Take some help from the store by using a rotisserie chicken and pre-washed spinach.

The ingredient list calls for Monterey Jack cheese, but one could spice things up and substitute pepper Jack. For the recipe — these quesadillas are also a scrumptious 4th of July starter! —

Ingredients

  1. 1 2- to 2 1/2-pound rotisserie chicken, meat shredded
  2. 4 cups baby spinach (about 3 ounces)

  4. 4 large flour tortillas
  5. 1 avocado, diced
  6. 1/2 cup store-bought fresh salsa
  7. 1/4 cup sour cream

Directions

  1. Heat grill to medium. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, spinach, and cheese.
  2. Dividing evenly, place the mixture on one half of each tortilla. Fold the other half over to cover.

Serves 4.

I probably wouldn't make this version because of the calories, but I hadn't thought before to grill a quesadilla! With a little less cheese and no sour cream it would be healthier but still tasty.
