Chicken quesadilla with spinach and mushrooms

Simple chicken quesadillas are great for many occasions. Kids can pick up the cheese wedges and eat them while having fun at their kindergarten friend’s birthday party. And adults can hold them in one hand while holding a glass of wine in the other and chatting with other parents. These sweet Mexican sticks, or churros, also fit perfectly in your hand.

What will we need

  • 250 g grated cheddar
  • 250 g of grated white cheese
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 250 g of chopped mushrooms
  • ½ teaspoon of minced garlic
  • 250 g of roughly chopped spinach
  • salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 8 tortillas
  • 300 g chopped boiled chicken
  • 60 g of chopped pitted black olives
  • Sour cream and salsa (to serve)


  • Mix the cheeses in a bowl.
  • Heat 2 teaspoons of butter in a pan with a lid over medium heat.
  • When the butter has melted, add the mushrooms and sauté for about 8 minutes. The mushrooms will soften as they cook and will probably release some liquid.
  • Continue cooking until all the liquid is released and evaporated and the mushrooms start to brown a little.
  • Add the chopped garlic and stir for 30 seconds.
  • Add the spinach, season with salt and pepper, and sauté for two minutes until the spinach has wilted. Transfer the vegetables to a plate and set aside.
  • Wash the pan and return it to medium heat and add half a teaspoon of butter.
  • Place the tortilla in the pan and cook for 30 seconds, then flip the tortilla over.
  • Top half of the quesadilla with 2 tablespoons of the cheese mixture, the sautéed vegetable mixture, and the chicken.
  • Top with another 2 tablespoons of grated cheese.
  • Flip the bare half of the tortilla over the filling, cover the pan, and cook for about 2 minutes until the cheese starts to melt on the bottom, then flip the quesadilla and continue cooking, 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove the quesadilla to a cutting board and let it rest for a minute before cutting it into 2 or 3 wedges.
  • Serve with salsa and sour cream.
