Your Not-So Typical Quesadilla

Let’s be completely honest with ourselves, we may or may not have had one too many quesadillas in our college careers.  Why, you ask?  I’ll tell you it’s because it’s one of the rare culinary endeavors that is both tasty and easy to make.

Now, with this in mind, we may or may not have gotten a little bit sick of them and that’s why this recipe was born.

3/4 cup of salsa (spiciness of your own choice!)
1/3 cup of olive oil

Time to make: 20-30 minutes


1. In a basic sautoir pan, add minimal olive oil and place a tortilla to heat it.

2. Once the tortilla is heated, add a spruce of mozzarella cheese on one half-side of the tortilla.

3. While the cheese melts, add spinach, diced tomatoes, and diced mangoes.  NOTE: you may put as much ingredients as you wish.

4. Top it off with a little bit more mozzarella and fold the other side over to complete your tortilla.
