Spinach and Artichoke Quesadillas

Spinach and Artichoke Quesadillas are a great way to combine the creamy flavors of spinach and artichoke dip with an easy way to make dinner.

I enjoy spinach and artichoke dip, but I am picky about it. It has to be really creamy and cheesy for me to enjoy. And we love quesadillas here. So why not combine the two and make Spinach and Artichoke Quesadillas?!

Since I already have a recipe for baked spinach artichoke dip, I decided to start with that. This is a bit different, but I knew I needed a slightly different texture to make it into a quesadilla. I also decided to try my hand at making homemade tortilla shells for the spinach and artichoke quesadillas.

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 during 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 stockpot 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. Wait until some of the spinach wilts before adding more. 

Add the cream cheese, mozzarella cheese, and parmesan cheese. Stir until the cheeses melt.

Spread about 1/4 of the mixture onto 4 of the tortilla shells. 

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?

    1. It was actually pretty easy to make the tortilla shells. Much easier than I thought it would be. And if you don’t tell them what’s in here, they may eat it and end up liking it!!

  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.

    1. I’ve only ever had artichokes when they are in spinach dip like this. I’m not sure how I feel about them on their own, but they are delicious when mixed with everything else.

  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.

    1. Hah, I have quite a few recipes that were like that. When I started blogging them I made myself measure and figure out the amounts so I could actually have it documented.

    1. Isn’t it funny that we sometimes get the food, but don’t think of them together? That’s how I was the first time I made this one. It just dawned on me one day to combine the two and it was delicious!

    1. I’ve never had artichokes on their own. It’s always been in a spinach artichoke dip like this. So even if you don’t like them on their own, you may once they are combined with so many other flavors.

  6. omg i would have quesadillas all day every day, i love it! I mean what there is not love, it is delicious! Can’t wait to try your recipe.

  7. I recently discovered a love for spinach so this is super timely! Never made artichoke either intrigued about how this will taste.
