Spinach Tortilla Wedges

Tortilla filled with spinach and melted cheese recipe

This is a super tasty recipe that cooks up very quickly. The key is finding a good multi-grain tortilla and some quality cheese. You can use any cheese you want. I usually use Jarlsberg and Gouda. But any will do depending on your tastes. I load it full of finely chopped spinach and grill it in a light dab of olive oil to make it super healthy. Top it with your favorite salsa and this is a sure winner. – Curt

MAKES 2 TORTILLA PIES

3 Cups finely chopped Spinach 1 Cup grated Cheese of choice (Jarlsberg, Gouda, sharp cheddar,

mozzarella)

4 multi-grain or whole wheat tortillas

olive oil

Salsa


1. Heat a cast iron skillet (or any skillet) to medium high temp.

2. Chop spinach up fine, and grate cheese. Then mix together for the filling.

3. Add a dab of olive oil on skillet and spread around. Place first tortilla on skillet.

4. Pile spinach mixture on the tortilla high. It will shrink in cooking. Place other tortilla on top. Then add a tablespoon of water to the skillet and cover the skillet with a lid. This creates a steam chamber that will cook down the spinach. Cook for a minute or so till the bottom tortilla is brown, but not burned. Remove lid and flip tortillas and brown the other side. I usually add a tablespoon of water again and cover to continue the oven like steam chamber process. When done, remover and chop into wedges, and top with your favorite salsa!

NOTE: There is no exact recipe for this as far as this being a perfect science. You have to be creative and just make them as you like them. The key is to chop the spinach very fine, and mix in a little grated cheese. The ratio is about 3 parts spinach to 1 part cheese. The spinach will reduce greatly when cooked. So I load a ton of spinach mixture in between the tortillas as it does cook down in volume. You can also add mushrooms or other vegetables. Just have fun and experiment. I like cooking on a cast iron skillet, but any skillet will do. Covering the skillet with a lid of some sort and adding a touch of water during the cooking will really help the spinach to cook down and the cheese to melt.
