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.Jump to Recipe
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.

I know corn tortillas are gluten-free, but I haven’t tried them with this recipe yet. I’d love to know how it comes out!
I love spinach dip so this looks very interesting but very delish! Def something I will have to try with my little one!
It’s one of my favorites, too. That’s why we decided to try it on a quesadilla!

These look absolutely delicious! I love quesadillas – I make them all the time – but I’ve not tried them with spinach and artichoke…. yet!
We make a lot of quesadillas, too. But it’s usually just chicken and cheese or cheese only so I wanted something a bit different.
I really love spinach and artichoke dip – so this is right up my alley! I can not wait to give these a try.
It’s one of my favorites, too! That’s why I figured it might make a great quesadilla.
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.
We try to work meatless meals into our rotation whenever I do the meal planning. This one is delicious and definitely makes you not miss the meat at all!
Oh God, these look delicious! I haven’t had a quesadilla in forever! Adding this to a list of things to make soon.
We usually have chicken and cheese quesadillas, so these are very different but still delicious!
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?
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!!
I see this becoming a favorite around my house. Anything spinach and artichoke dip-like is already a hit! Can’t wait to try!
Oh, then this sounds like the perfect recipe for your family! I hope you all enjoy it 🙂
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.
You can easily modify the recipe to your liking. That’s what’s great about cooking at home!
To be honest, i’ve never tasted artichoke. but knowing this is a veggie dish makes my mouth water. It looks delicious.
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.
Ooo I love the look of these – super yummy! Artichoke is a brilliant flavour and never thought about using in a quesadilla xx
It works surprisingly well. I’ve just learned you have to make sure to chop the artichoke up well or it’s hard to bite into in a quesadilla.
Omg I love quesedillas…these look so yummy and healthy…spinach + artichoke is a healthy combination!
Well I don’t know if the amount of cheese I add is extremely healthy, but they are definitely yummy! 😉
I love spinach and cheese! This is something i would definately love to make and its easy too!
It’s such a delicious combination!
I love spinach and artichoke dip, and putting between tortillas – with ALL that cheese! – sounds amazing!
The cheese is definitely great in this one. I love cheese 🙂
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.
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.
just got back from cosco with the dip & tortillas…. never dawned on me to put them together… that will be my dinner tonight. thnx maude
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!
These look so great. Thank you so much for sharing these, the pictures look great! Can’t wait to make these at home.
Thanks, Billy! I hope you enjoy the recipe when you make it 🙂
Wow, those look great. I got to try them!
They are so delicious and a great way to vary regular quesadillas.
I am not a big artichoke fan, but I have to admit that your quesadillas look amazing. I would definitely taste them!
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.
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.
Quesadillas are such a great easy option for a meal! And there are so many varieties, you probably could have a different one for every meal!
I recently discovered a love for spinach so this is super timely! Never made artichoke either intrigued about how this will taste.
Spinach and artichoke is a great combination! I’ve used it together in quite a few different meals and it’s always delicious.
