Ham Cheese & Spinach Quesadillas

This week has been a super fun week - like I mentioned yesterday, I had the honor to speak and serve close to 150 women at my church.  It was such a wonderful experience!  To come down from all the adrenaline, I proclaimed yesterday to be a lay low and easy kind of Friday.  I must admit, for someone who is constantly on the go with kids, it felt good.  By accident, today is another one of those days.  Woot woot!!!

I thought I would share this easy recipe for quesadillas.  I love quesadillas because they are so easy to make, and they take virtually no time at all.  My kids prefer just plain cheese, and I like to jazz mine up a bit with some green - hey, if I can squeeze in a little more nutrients and vitamins, why not, right??

Here is Challenge #9:

Ham Cheese & Spinach Quesadillas
Recipe by Kitchen Groovy

2 tortillas
slices of cheddar cheese, enough to cover the entire tortilla
slices of deli ham, enough to cover the entire tortilla
fresh baby spinach leaves

Heat pan or griddle (if using a griddle, heat to 300 or 350 degrees)
Assemble the quesadillas:
one one tortilla, layer the cheese to cover the entire surface.  Repeat with the deli ham, then again with spinach and last with another layer of cheddar cheese.  Top with the 2nd tortilla.

Butter the top side of the quesadilla and place buttured side down on hot pan or griddle.  Wait a few minutes until browned (I usually butter the other side of the quesadilla at this point) and flip.  Wait until browned and cheese is melted.

Cut and serve!
