  • 2 large flour tortillas
  • 1 cup fresh spinach leaves, washed and dried
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional toppings: salsa, sour cream, guacamole


  1. Prepare the Spinach and Corn Mixture: In a medium-sized skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced red bell pepper and cook for 2-3 minutes until softened. Then, add the corn kernels and cook for another 2-3 minutes until they are heated through. Add the fresh spinach leaves to the skillet and cook until wilted, about 1-2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Assemble the Quesadillas: Place one flour tortilla on a flat surface. Spread half of the spinach and corn mixture evenly over one half of the tortilla. Sprinkle half of the shredded Monterey Jack cheese over the spinach and corn mixture. Top with chopped fresh cilantro. Fold the other half of the tortilla over the filling to create a half-moon shape.
  3. Cook the Quesadillas: Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium heat. Carefully transfer the assembled quesadilla to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until golden brown and crispy, and the cheese is melted. Repeat the process with the remaining tortilla and filling ingredients.
  4. Serve and Enjoy: Once cooked, transfer the quesadillas to a cutting board and let them cool for a minute. Use a sharp knife to slice each quesadilla into wedges. Serve hot with your favorite toppings such as salsa, sour cream, or guacamole.
