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

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

20 minutes10 minutes

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.

    So yummy!! Everything about it was so delicious. My very first tzatziki sauce and it was perfect. I am hooked on all your recipes. I can’t wait to try more!

    I would have given this 5+ stars, BUT for the flour tortillas (ugh). I love Greek style food, so personally…. I’d never insult this lovely combination of flavors by pairing it with anything Mexican. We loved this w/Pita, and also on Nan Bread.

    • Not quite sure how to read this comment, Angelina. I’m going to assume you didn’t mean this in the way it reads. This is a fusion dish – it’s Greek quesadillas so we used Greek flavors in an otherwise Mexican staple. Does that make sense?

      Glad you still enjoyed your version! #spreadkindness

    This recipe is amazing! The flavors that are layered in this quesadilla are incredible. Best part for me was that it turned out EXACTLY AS PICTURED! That is NOT the case with most of the recipes I try. LOL! 

  7. Nothing better than melty cheese! These look amazing!

  8. 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!

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

  10. Wow this looks amazing!

  11. 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!

    Cheers!

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

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

  14. 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!

    – MAK

  15. 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. 🙂

  16. 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!

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

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

  19. 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 !

  20. 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! 🙂

  21. 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!
