Beef Spinach Quesadillas

Beef Spinach Quesadillas Meal

This year my goal is to incorporate more healthy ingredients into my quick and easy family recipes,Ā hopefully I stick with this goal. One of my favorite meals to make my family are quesadillas, so since I have the healthy mindset I decided to change it up a little and make them Beef Spinach Quesadillas.

Beef Spinach Quesadiilas

I love quesadillas, but I normally simply add fajita meat with lots of cheese. Since I am trying to incorporate some healthy into my family’s diet I decided to take a spin on the regular quesadilla and add some spinach.
