Spanakopita Quesadillas

Spanakopita is a savory Greek pie usually made with layered filo dough. This quick version keeps the classics fillings of spinach, herbs and cheese but swaps the filo for gluten-free tortillas that get a quick griddling on the stovetop until perfectly golden and ready to enjoy.
