In a skillet over medium heat, add olive oil and onions. Cook onions until softened. Add greens, lemon juice, cumin, and garlic powder. Sautee together until spinach is slightly wilted. Remove mixture from the pan and place tortilla in pan, add ½ cup of mixture on half of tortilla. Top greens mixture with goat cheese and tomato and fold tortilla in half.
