I don’t know why, but I have always had an affinity for Greek flavors and food.

No one in my family is Greek, and I didn’t eat a lot of Greek food growing up, but I just LOVE feta cheese, olive oil, kalamata olives, oregano, mint, etc, and I find those ingredients in my food quite often.

Though quesadillas are often prepared with Tex-Mex type ingredients, one day I was digging around in the fridge and decided I wanted to make a Greek-ish quesadilla. So I cut up some kalamata olives, crumbled up some feta, sliced some scallions, tomatoes and chicken, and cut up some mozzarella cheese:

Then I grabbed a skillet and melted a little butter to coat the pan:

I laid down my flour tortilla and piled on all of the ingredients:

The quesadilla only needs a few minutes in the pan to toast and crisp up the edges and let the cheese melt. Then it’s ready to be sliced into triangles:
