You’ll need:
2 tortillas – I like using uncooked tortillas (I found Two Tias brand at Costco)
1 handful baby spinach
2 tbsp chevre style goat cheese crumbles
1/4 an avocado
salsa

Directions:
Place one tortilla in a large cast iron skillet over med-high heat. Layer it first with 1 tbsp goat cheese crumbles, then add avocado, fresh spinach leaves, another tbsp of goat cheese, and then finally top with the second tortilla. Let sit for about 2-3 mins, continuously checking the bottom of the tortilla.

Once the tortilla has started to brown, press down with a spatula and then flip the entire quesadilla over. Let sit for another 2-3 minutes. When your tortilla is brown on both sides, remove from skillet and cut into 4 sections with a very sharp knife.
