Delicious, easy and quick Beef Mozzarella Spinach Quesadillas ! Serve for dinner or great for lunch with gooey cheese, ground beef, spinach and more !

Beef Mozzarella Spinach Quesadillas

Quesadillas must be one of the quickest, easiest and most versatile meals. You could really fill two tortillas with anything and have a rich (or not) meal as you would like.

But as with most recipes, there had to have been the first Quesadilla, which as I see things would then be the actual authentic recipe.

A quick glance at the ingredients list (full printable recipe lower down in card):

  • exta-virgin Olive Oil
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Chili Flakes
  • Lean Ground Beef
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Can Chili Beans
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Fresh Spinach
  • Large Tortillas
  • Cheddar Cheese

Beef Mozzarella Spinach Quesadillas

These Beef Mozzarella Spinach Quesadillas are perfect for dinner.

Or slice them into smaller wedges, and they are just fine for lunch as well – especially as a special kid’s lunch after school, perhaps.

Beef Mozzarella Spinach Quesadillas

What I love most about this recipe, is that the Quesadillas are almost just as delicious cold, as when served warm, out of the oven.

Feel free to add more Cheddar cheese to the top ! In our house, the more cheese, the better – always !
