What's Spanish for “Opa!”? This cross-cultural dinner will have you saying delicious in at least three languages, four if you count the “mmms” that are universally known for meaning “scrumptious.” Spinach and feta are joined by stretchy, cheesy mozzarella in classic quesadilla form, topped with tart sour cream and an acidic, bright tomato topping that provides lovely balance. This dinner delights in all tongues, but mostly on yours as you devour that last bite. Tip: Make quick work of mincing garlic by smashing the whole clove with the side of your chef's knife. Then rock the knife back and forth, keeping the tip steady by resting your other hand over the top.
