Preparation

  1. Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté it for 1 minute, stirring it frequently. Add the artichoke hearts and 2 cups of baby spinach. Stir them a bit to combine everything and cook them until the spinach begins to wilt.
  2. Add cream cheese, mayo, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes to pan and stir to them to combine. Heat everything through and set the mixture aside.
  3. Place a large non-stick pan on the stove over medium-high heat. Place 1 tortilla in the pan and fill it with half of the spinach artichoke mixture and an additional 1/2 cup of baby spinach. Make sure to keep the mixture on only half of the tortilla.
  4. Fold tortilla in half and cook it until bottom begins to brown. Flip it and cook it until the other side is browned as well.
  5. Remove from the pan and repeat this with remaining ingredients. Slice them up as you like.
