Number of Servings: 4


    1 tbs olive oil
    2 cups finely chopped onions
    1 fresh chile, minced
    5 cups chopped fresh spinach, large stems removed, about 10 ounces
    pinch of dried oregano
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    4 8 or 10 inch whole wheat tortillas
    1 cup grated monterey jack cheese


makes 4 servings.

1) In a large saucepan on medium-high heat, warm the oil and cook the onions and chiles for 4-5 minutes, until softened. Add the spinach, orengano, salt and pepper. Stir until the spinach has wilted, a minute or two. Remove from the heat and drain.

2) Place one of the tortillas in a dry skillet on medium heat (for a crispier quesadilla, lightly oil the skillet). Sprinkle on 1/4 cup of the grated cheese. After about a minute, when the cheese has begun to melt, spread 1/4 of the drained spinach mixture over half of the tortilla. Fold the tortilla over the spinach and cheese to make a half-circle and cook for a minute. Turn the quesadilla over and cook until the cheese is thoroughly melted and the bottom of the tortilla is speckeld brown, about a minute.

3) Remove the quesadilla and slice into wedges. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.

Serve with salsa
