Servings Prep Time

4 10minutes 

Cook Time

15minutes 

Ingredients

6oz. baby spinach

pinch kosher salt

8 small tortillas(or 4 large)

8oz. pepper jack cheesegrated

 fresh spicy salsa or pico de gallo

 

Instructions

Heat ¼ c. water in a large skillet over medium heat. Add spinach, sprinkle with salt, and cover. Cook for approximately 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until spinach is wilted.

Drain spinach in a colander, rinse with cold water, and squeeze out excess water. Set aside.

Rinse and dry the same skillet. Spray the skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium-high heat. Place 1-2 tortillas (as many as will fit in an even layer) in the hot skillet, and evenly spread a thin layer of cheese over the surface. Separate cooked spinach leaves and spread over the cheese.

When cheese is mostly melted, scoop up about a tablespoon of salsa, draining as much liquid off as possible, and drop it onto half the open tortilla. Carefully fold the side of the tortilla that does not have salsa on it over the top, creating a half-circle shape. Cook about one minute longer before removing to a plate. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
