Greek Quesadillas — Damn Delicious

Greek Quesadillas

All the best Greek favors come together in this EPIC cheesy quesadilla, topped with an easy homemade Greek yogurt tzatziki sauce!

Butters and I have basically locked ourselves in our house during this LA heat wave, sipping on these, while also trying to figure out the appropriate tzatziki sauce-to-quesadilla ratio.

I’m not going to lie – it took some time to get the perfect set of measurements just right to ensure that each quesadilla has enough sauce to go around.

But sometimes I get carried away with my dipping practices and there’s just not enough for the last few slices.

Or maybe I just solve everyone’s problems here and double it.

Greek Quesadillas

Yield: 8 servings

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

All the best Greek favors come together in this EPIC cheesy quesadilla, topped with an easy homemade Greek yogurt tzatziki sauce!

Ingredients:

  • 8 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 (10-ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1/2 cup julienned sun dried tomatoes in olive oil, drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped pitted kalamata olives
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill

For the tzatziki sauce

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 English cucumber, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh mint, optional
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

Directions:

  1. To make the tzatziki sauce, combine Greek yogurt, cucumber, garlic, dill, lemon juice, lemon zest and mint in a small bowl; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Drizzle with olive oil. Refrigerate for at least 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld; set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Top tortilla with spinach, sun dried tomatoes, olives and cheeses, and then top with another tortilla. Repeat with remaining tortillas to make 4 quesadillas.
  4. Place quesadillas onto the prepared baking sheet. Place into oven and bake until the cheese has melted, about 8-10 minutes.
  5. Serve immediately with tzatziki sauce, garnished with dill, if desired.

These look amazing!! I am all about Greek flavors lately so this sounds so yummy! Love the fresh dill you added too – sounds perfect for these!

Hi Chungah!! Long-time fan here. These quesadillas are wonderful. Yummy yummy yummy and easy to make!
Not to get too personal here, but guess I’ve been reading your blog for a while so I feel I have a right to ask–(Don’t really have a right to ask, but I’ve enjoyed your blog so much that I’m playing the Jewish mother here!!)
What happened to Jason?? And your other little doggie?? No big explanation required! I guess I just want to know if he is still in the picture.

Thanks for being such a long time fan, R. Dubin! I decided to take my brand in another direction and focus solely on the food and my fans, and let my personal life remain out of the spotlight. Both Jason and Ollie are well. You are so sweet for checking in! 🙂

Hi – I love your blog so much! I am a bit confused – if each quesadilla has 2 tortillas (one on bottom and topped with one) Wouldn’t 4 quesadillas need 8 tortillas or are you folding them over or are you stacking the 4 tortillas like a cake? Thank you !

Yes, you are completely right. 4 quesadillas would need 8 tortillas. Thanks! 🙂

Could you please include the number of calories in this delicious looking dish?
Thank you

Love the greek theme. these are one of my favorite things to make. (:

Yum! I love Greek food and am always looking for fun, new, delicious recipes. I baked a couple chicken breasts with salt, pepper, oregano, and lemon zest, chopped it up and put it into the quesadilla on top of the olives! My fiancé loved it! What a great twist on a classic recipe!

Hi Chungah! My grandma and I tried this recipe tonight and, oh my goodness, they were amazing. I have tried many of your recipes and you have never failed me! Thank you for sharing all the yummy recipes. 🙂

Quesadillas are the best–the possibilities are endless! I LOVE playing around with different flavor combos, and this one is definitely going on my list of ones to try. Thanks for the inspiration!

Would you have a recipe for adding a Greek-flavored meat to this?

Unfortunately, I do not have a recipe for a Greek-flavored meat at this time.

OMG so good but the tzatziki sauce is the hard part. Mine never comes out the right way?

Made these the night before last. They were delicious. My wife enjoyed the tzatziki but I, less so. I guess I’m a purist – I like my tzatziki, but not with lemon zest and without the dill (to each their own). Another easy hit, Chungah! Thanks for sharing…I’m waiting patiently for the beginning of September for my copy of your book!

Wow this looks amazing!

My husband didn’t even ask where is the meat, wonderful week night dinner! Will make it again. Thanks for sharing this recipe

We tried this and it was AMAZING! I added sauteed chicken breast chunks seasoned with Greek seasoning. Husband and I will be enjoying this delightful spin on Greek food often. Thanks!

Nothing better than melty cheese! These look amazing!
