Chicken Tortilla Dippers

Found this recipe at Sunday Baker.  It's fabulous and super easy.  The original recipe calls for using the oven, but we made these in our quesadilla maker.  My toddler actually ate spinach (and for that matter, so did my husband!) with these!
2 whole wheat tortillas
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cooked and shredded
Finely chopped spinach
1/4 c. shredded mozzarella
1/8 c. shredded Parmesan
1 T. olive oil
1 clove minced garlic
1/2 c. marinara sauce

What to Do:
1. Preheat the quesadilla maker (or your oven to 400*F).  Spread 1/2 T. of the olive oil on the top of a tortilla.  Sprinkle with half of the minced garlic.  Top with the chicken, spinach, and cheese.  Spread the remaining garlic and olive oil on the bottom of the other tortillas and put over the top.
2.  Close into the quesadilla maker and cook until done (or cook in oven for 10 - 12 minutes, or until the tortilla is crispy golden and the cheese is melted).
3.  Serve with a side of warm marinara dipping sauce.

  1. I will have to try this version! I love "finely chopped" spinach. It can be sneaked into anything. My girls even think something is missing when it is not between their pizza crust and the sauce. :) Yummmy, Kristen!
