Smoked Turkey and Spinach Quesadillas

Spinach is spectacular when it's paired with diced chilies and smoked turkey, made into a quesadilla and served with salsa, guacamole and sour cream.

8 CHI-CHI'S® 8 inch Flour Tortilla Soft Taco Size

2 cups diced smoked turkey (8 ounces)

2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese

1 (4.25-ounce) can CHI-CHI'S® Diced Green Chilies, drained

1/4 teaspoon pepper

16 leaves fresh spinach or cilantro

1 (16-ounce) jar CHI-CHI'S® 16 oz Thick & Chunky Salsa Medium, if desired

Guacamole, if desired
