Yum! I had to use a green pepper but it was still good . I used a carb wise 9 grain w chia tortilla , then 1/2 fat free cheese and 1/2 2%milk cheese and 1/4tsp of heartsmart spread instead of butter with alittle canola cooking spray and 2tsp of olive oil to cut down on the calories and fat
Added a handful of chopped rotisserie chicken to the mix. Sriracha as garnish. We loved it. Thanks!
So glad you liked it Jen! Great idea to add chicken and sriracha.
I made this last night &, like others, I added additional vegetables that were in the fridge too. It was fantastic & quick to come together. Great recipe!
I’m so glad you liked it Amy! Love the idea of adding more vegetables.
Very tasty. The kale skeptics were all won over. I served them with scrambled eggs.
I am caregiver to my 93 year old mom. Feeding her can sometimes be a challenge. Two things she loves are greens and beans. This recipe comes just as we are getting our first cold front of the season. We will have highs in the upper 80s! Thank you bunches for this meal. I have a feeling it will become a staple.
How does this do reheating? I’m helping my vegetarian friend with meals and can’t deliver on the day she needs it. Can I make this ahead of time, freeze it or keep in fridge, and she can reheat on the day? If it reheats well, would you mind sharing instruction? Thank you so much!
Hi EK, I have never tried freezing and reheating quesadillas. If you do, please let us know how it turns out for you!
Delicious and easy! I added 1/4 c of chick peas, a sprinkle of turmeric and only 1 oz of cheddar. Before adding my changes I thought it was good too but I just wanted to make a healthier meal out of it. Thank you, keep ’em coming!
This was great! I actually added mushrooms to mine and the first one I cooked using butter and it was a little greasier than I wanted so when it was time to make the second I just used cooking spray and it was better. I will definitely be making it again and filling it with even more fresh goodies!
Hi, I made this tonight for dinner along with a tossed salad and it made a lovely dinner. Instead of the cheddar cheese, I used Daiya cheddar because it my son is a Vegan. I thought about also using spinach next time. The “Kale”saldilla is a good idea for a quick dinner and so nutritious too! Thanks for this.
I changed up recipe a little and used baby kale in a bag from Trader Joes because I am too lazy to cut the thick stalks from the kale. I also used wheat tortillas without the butter. Awesome recipe though, thank you so much for the great idea!
Good idea, as I like kale, too. However I don’t do dairy so I’m going to try Annie’s Cashew cheese and I bet it will be equally good!
BTW, new to your site and I like the layout. Good for those of us who aren’t “expert cooks”.
I made these! I was a little worried they wouldn’t be flavorful enough, and I wasn’t sure the kids would eat the kale, but surprisingly they were SO good and everyone ate them up! With the only spice being cumin and no salt they still had plenty of flavor and were very satisfying. I tripled the recipe and the seven of us stuffed ourselves. Thanks so much!
This looks incredibly good however I wonder whether anyone else thought of trying the “kale stuff” raw and finish accordinbg to rest of the recipe. Kale chopped is easy, fresh and not difficult to digest…..it might be more nutritious then the added cooking and still taste great.
Fresh Kale is easily chopped in the food processor by just a few pulse bursts — making it easy to enjoy without all the chewing on fresh leaf.
I like your suggestion, Kevin. I just started using kale and I was surprised of how good it tasted raw.
“Every party needs a pooper, that’s why you invited me, your Party Pooper…” lol
Hate to say it, but this one, beautiful and healthy as it is and as much as we like greens as a rule… The general consensus of my gang is that I ruined a perfectly good quesadilla by putting kale in it…
Hah! Did you ruin the quesadilla? Or just improved the kale? Given how much I live on quesadillas, I completely accept the notion that having kale in them can be a stretch for the tastebuds. But, that said, I need more kale in my diet a lot more than I need more quesadillas. :-)
I could see doubling the filling ingredients and mixing it into bow-tie pasta for a meatless meal.
