White Bean Quesadillas with Spinach is an easy and quick weeknight that can be made in just 20-minutes from scratch. Crispy on the outside and creamy bean and spinach filling on the inside make this a family favorite recipe.
Season the Beans: Drain the beans and rinse thoroughly. Once drained, transfer them to a mixing bowl. Add chili powder, ground cumin, garlic powder, and salt. Stir to combine.
Add Spinach: Add chopped spinach, ranch dressing, and shredded cheddar cheese to the beans and spices mixture. Stir to combine.
Divide the Mixture: Divide the mixture evenly in each tortilla. Fold them in half.
Cook the Quesadillas: Heat a skillet on medium-high heat. Cook one or two Quesadillas at a time until they get brown and crispy on the outside, while the cheese melts inside. (3-5 minutes on each side)Cut Quesadillas in half and serve with Chipotle Salsa or Simple Sour Cream or Guacamole.
Cheese: You can replace Cheddar Cheese with Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack Cheese or Colby Jack Cheese. You can also make it more Mexican by adding Shredded Mexican Cotija Cheese.
Bring in More Heat: You can add more Heat to the Quesadillas. Just add some Chipotle Peppers in Adobo sauce and it will make it spicier. Or else just add 1 tablespoon of Chipotle hot Sauce while making the White Bean Spinach mixture,
Salsa - If you don't have salsa don't fret it. Just use Enchilada Sauce in its place and you'll be good to go.
Don't Like Spinach - No issues, you can replace spinach with a can of diced green chilies. Different texture but a good alternative.
