Comment

We had a quesadilla taste test, with a class of adults, using this recipe and the Pear Quesadilla recipe, and it was a tie -- everyone liked both recipes.  We used chicken instead of turkey, but this recipe was still a big hit.  Even people who HATED spinach liked it (I did use fresh spinach, so that made a difference)!

Another awesome recipe -- thanks Food Hero!
