Prep Time Cook Time Total Time Servings
10 mins 20 mins 30 mins 4 servings


  • 8 large flour tortillas
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cups fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Optional toppings: sour cream, salsa, guacamole

Cooking Instructions

  1. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the diced red onion and minced garlic, and sauté until fragrant and translucent, about 2 minutes.

  2. Add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet, along with the ground cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook for 5-7 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender and lightly browned.

  3. Add the fresh spinach leaves to the skillet and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

  4. Heat a separate skillet over medium heat. Place one flour tortilla in the skillet and sprinkle a generous amount of shredded Monterey Jack cheese on top.

  5. Spoon a portion of the mushroom and spinach mixture onto half of the tortilla. Fold the other half of the tortilla over the filling, creating a half-moon shape.

  6. Cook the quesadilla for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the tortilla is golden brown and the cheese is melted. Repeat with the remaining tortillas and filling.

  7. Once cooked, remove the quesadillas from the skillet and let them cool for a minute or two before slicing into wedges.

  8. Serve the Mushroom and Spinach Quesadillas with optional toppings such as sour cream, salsa, or guacamole. They are perfect for a quick lunch or dinner!
