This is one crazy fast recipe that is healthy and incredibly tasty. Don’t get hung up on exact measurements here. All you need for the filling is spinach, kale and some good cheese grated up. That’s it. The secret is to chop up the kale and spinach pretty fine. In about half inch sections. It seems to stay on the tortilla better that way. Anyway, chop up the greens, then mix in whatever cheeses you want. Kale is considered possibly the most healthy green vegetable in the world. So it’s this dish packs nutrients! Serve with some good salsa, or top with chopped tomatoes and red peppers. It is so fast and your friends will be amazed! – Curt
1 Cups finely chopped kale
2 Cups finely chopped spinach 1 Cup grated Cheese of choice (I like Gouda and Jarlsberg)
4 multi grain or whole wheat tortillas
Chopped tomato and red pepper
1. HEAT SKILLET: Heat a cast iron skillet (or any skillet) to medium high temp.
2. KALE, SPINACH & CHEESE: Chop spinach & kale up fine, and grate cheese. Then mix together for the filling.
3. COOK: Add a bit of olive oil on the skillet and spread around. Add tortilla and then pile the spinach/kale mixture on HIGH. It will shrink, so add a lot. Top with another tortilla. Cover with a lid to keep heat on. Gently flip when tortilla is browned. I add a tablespoon of water and cover with lid. This creates a steam chamber which cooks the filling really well. When done, just remove and cut into quarters and top with salsa or tomato topping (not essential but tasty).
Note: Once you experiment a little with these you will see how fast and easy these are to make. They can be made quite quickly and I’ve served these to a pretty large group right off the skillet one after another. They are devoured very quickly!
