Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Wash and dry the spinach. Crack the eggs into a bowl; season with salt and pepper. Whisk until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine the tomatillo sauce and sour cream. Grate the cheese on the large side of a box grater.

2 Make the filling

In a large nonstick pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced onion; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until softened. Add the spinach; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until wilted and combined. Add the beaten eggs. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined and cooked through. Turn off the heat.

3 Cook the quesadillas & serve your dish

Place the tortillas on a work surface. Top one half of each tortilla with the grated cheese, filling, and 1 tablespoon of the tomatillo sour cream; fold the tortillas in half over the filling. Rinse and wipe out the pan used to cook the filling. In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium until hot. Add the quesadillas. Cook 2 to 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and the cheese is melted (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil before flipping). Transfer to a cutting board and immediately season with salt. Carefully cut in half. Serve the cooked quesadillas with the remaining tomatillo sour cream on the side. Enjoy!
