Gluten Free Cheese Quesadilla

To make cheese quesadillas is simple enough, place your favorite cheese between two flour tortillas, heat in a skillet until the cheese starts to melt, cut it with a pizza cutter and serve with guacamole, sour cream and/or pico de gallo. But what if you want it Gluten Free?

The directions would be the same as my recipe on how to make Homemade Corn Tortillas, but with the following ingredients:

Makes 8 tortillas Total Time: 1 hour

2 cups gluten free flour
4 tablespoons vegetable, palm or coconut oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
2/3-1 cup warm water

Directions would be the same as I described above, but you could also use a waffle iron. See my Waffle Maker Chicken Quesadilla recipe.  I’ve made these a few times for my granddaughters. The one at Walmart is perfect because you can remove the plates for easy clean up. I got a more expensive model at Costco and you can’t remove the plates. Pain in the you know what to clean afterwards.



Remember you can always add ingredients to your cheese quesadilla. In the picture below someone added spinach, halved cherry tomatoes and black beans. Topped with a slice of avocado and seasoned with salt and pepper. Doesn’t it look good?
