Spinach-cheese quesadillas

Your kids will love this fun finger-food recipe so much that they won’t even notice the good-for-you greens and tomatoes tucked inside.

3 ounces spinach
1/4 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced tomato
1 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 tablespoons torn fresh basil leaves
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup shredded four cheese blend
1/4 cup queso fresco crumbles
nonstick cooking spray
6 6-inch whole-grain tortillas

1. In a large nonstick skillet, combine first 6 ingredients. Stir. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until spinach has wilted. Remove from heat and stir in shredded and crumbled cheese.
2. Spray a griddle with nonstick cooking spray. Heat to medium heat.
3. Lay tortillas out on a clean surface. Scoop spinach-cheese mixture (made in step 1) on half of each tortilla and fold the other half over the filling. Place on the griddle and cook for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until golden-brown.
4. Use a knife to cut each quesadilla in half and enjoy warm!
