Hi ya! How’s it going? Let’s make a toast to hump day! Ewww, I hate that word.

Do you know what makes this day better, though? Knowing that you’ll be having Spinach and Artichoke Dip QUESADILLAS for dinner! And why aren’t you doing a head dive straight into these melty treats, anyhow?!

Honestly, I’m just happy to report that Spinach and Artichoke Dip is still alive and kickin’! I feel like it’s so retro, but I don’t care ’cause it’s SO good!

It has been too long since we talked artichokes + spinach. Too. Long. In fact, those two ingredients together haven’t appeared on here since my recipe for Spinach and Artichoke Dip Crock Pot Mashed Potatoes, which was way back in November. Of 2015!!

Let’s just cut right to it –> the main idea here is that you fight temptation and stop eating these Cara Mia Marinated Artichokes straight from the jar, but instead, give said artichokes a swim in the skillet before they meet up with their bestie, baby spinach.

But, aside from being fun to eat, Cara Mia’s artichokes are also Trans Fat Free, Cholesterol Free, and Sugar Free. Dressed in a delicious oil and herb marinade, these boys are great in salads and dips, served as an appetizer, or tucked inside these amazing quesadillas.

Like most recipes in my life, this one starts and ends with lightER cream cheese, lightER mozzarella cheese, and not so light, BUT very little parmesan cheese.

This is so easy to make: Prepare the dip, take some low carb tortillas, place ’em on a hot skillet, spread dip on one side of tortilla, flip it, flip it again, remove from heat, let stand, cut it in half, and repeat!

…Ooookay… now that I wrote it all out, it seems like a lot of work, but I promise, it is not. And it’s soooooo delicious! I also have this 3 year old that can confirm it – she inhaled a good quarter of the quesadillas. For reals. Girl can eat!
