Creamy Southwest Quesadillas

Category: Appetizers

 Ingredients List

  • Ingredients
  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 8 ounces whipped cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon reduced sodium taco seasoning
  • 4 whole wheat soft 8 inch tortillas
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced small
  • 1 cup chopped fresh spinach (or frozen)
  • 1 can corn, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained



In a bowl, combine the cheese, cream cheese and taco seasoning. Spread in one fourth of the mixture over one side of each tortilla.
Meanwhile, sauté the red bell pepper in a small sauce pan for 3 minutes to make soft. Add in the spinach at the last minute just until wilted.
In a large bowl, combine the cooked bell pepper and spinach with the corn and black beans. Sprinkle over one half of the cheese mixture on the tortillas.
Working in batches, place filled tortillas on a medium warmed griddle until the cheese has melted and the tortilla is light brown.
Serve immediately.
