Chicken, Sweet Potato, & Spinach Quesadillas

Welcome back to Monday! How’s everyone doing this morning? I’m sure many of you were out having fun doing the whole weekend thang, so here’s a little bit of what you may have missed while you were out having fun…

So last night, I briefly mentioned that I had the most unreal quesadillas for dinner.


The funny thing is, Jay and I were actually planning on making pizza all day long, but while I was out getting my pedicure done, I happened to be reading through the latest issue of Health magazine and came across a recipe that I just could not get out of my head.


I mean, sweet potatoes? In a quesadilla? That’s like a match made in heaven right there! Lucky for us, we already happened to have all of the ingredients that we needed on hand, and I took that as a sign that these needed to happen. The pizza could wait.

So the quesadillas happened…but with a few minor adjustments which I only think made them even more amazing.


I will tell you that these quesadillas were extremely filling. I wound up feeling like a load eating my entire quesadilla, while Jay ended up leaving one of his quarters. That probably would have been the smart thing to do, but I just could not put them down.


They were delicious and would be perfect for a quick and easy dinner (or lunch!). I’d definitely recommend giving ‘em a try. And another thing? Don’t skip out on the olive oil when cooking the tortillas; it helps them crisp up so much better than regular cooking spray would AND they taste so much better. Trust me!

What are some of your favorite quesadilla combinations?

    oh my goodness, these sound like something i’d absolutely love. well let’s be honest, i love pretty much anything with sweet potatoes, but these sound so unique! i also love quesadillas with cheddar & jack cheese, chopped bell peppers, and black beans inside topped with guac and salsa!

    Oooooohhhhhh, these sound something like my family would enjoy. We’re not big spinach fans so we’d probably swap that out with something else. I never thought about sweet potatoes in quesadillas! My brothers would love this. Thanks.

    My quesadilla combo is pretty plain, but I like it this way. When I go to Pancho’s (haven’t gone in forever- need to go back soon), I usually order a chicken quesadilla with sour cream, and guacamole. I spread the tub of sour cream inside my quesadilla and then dip the quesadilla in the guacamole side. Yummy! :)

    Oh my goodness, those sound so tasty!! I never would have thought to put sweet potato in a quesadilla, but I totally believe you when you say it’s delicious :). I usually just do the standard chicken, cheese, and some veggies in mine…but I think I need to start branching out!

    Love me some quesadillas! My fav is probably mushroom with caramelized onions, but this one looks like it could give it a run for its money. Wow. Pinning!!

    Tried these tonight… so, so good! Unreal is definitely the word for them. Who would’ve ever thought sweet potato could go so well in a quesadilla? I added a little crunch by throwing in some corn and man, was it good! Thank you for the recipe!
