I enjoy spinach and artichoke dip, but I am picky about it. It has to be really creamy and cheesy for me to enjoy it. These quesadillas are perfect!

I enjoy spinach and artichoke dip, but I am picky about it. It has to be really creamy and cheesy for me to enjoy.

I found this recipe from Pinterest, and changed it up just slightly to match my tastes. I used a little more cream cheese and parmesan cheese than the recipe called for, 1oz less spinach (mostly because it comes in a 5oz container or 12oz and I don’t need all that extra), and homemade tortilla shells

Overall, they came out pretty good. The boys weren’t so sure about the spinach and artichoke, but I feel like it’s an acquired taste. My dad used to make Spinach Artichoke Dip every year at the holidays and I never ate it when I was younger.

Of course, I mentioned that I made tortillas from scratch for this recipe, but you don’t have to. I really wanted to learn how to make them, so this was a great recipe to try it out. Usually, I buy the ones from the store for any quesadillas we make. 

Step by Step

Heat the oil in a large saucepan or stock pot over medium-high heat. Add the chopped artichoke hearts and cook for about 1-2 minutes to soften slightly.

Lower the heat to medium and add the spinach leaves. If your pot isn’t big enough, you may need to do this in a few batches, waiting until some of the spinach wilts before adding more.

Cook the spinach, stirring constantly, until it’s all melted and mixed in with the artichokes.

Top with the other 4 tortilla shells, then place in a medium skillet over medium heat to brown the shell for a few minutes.

Flip the shell and cook the other side. Slice into pieces and serve warm.

  1. I love spinach dip so this looks very interesting but very delish! Def something I will have to try with my little one!

  2. I love artichoke! As a vegetarian, I’m always looking for delicious new recipes. This one looks perfect! I think my kids will love it, too.

  3. First off, SO impressed you made your own tortillas! My kids LOVE quesadillas but think that they don’t like artichokes and spinach (though sometimes they will unknowingly eat them in other things w/o complaint) – I wonder if I could get them to eat them in this dish?

  4. Funny you love creamy and cheesy because over the last couple of years I’ve flipped the other way. Love artichoke and spinach though, I’d just go lighter on the sauce.

  5. Happy to find this recipe. I have made Spinach and Artichoke Quesadillas for years, but it’s always been one of those throw it all in without measuring, then sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s ok. Making this tonight.
