This past week I was able to try out the latest from Udi’s Gluten Free, their new ‘flour’ tortillas. I have to say I have missed quesadillas. I have tried many times and failed at making my own gluten free tortillas, so I had high hopes for these.
Guess what? They worked! Now, let me add if you are not gluten free then enjoy this recipe with a nice, soft flour tortilla…that’s what my husband did. For the rest of us though who are gluten free, these will work perfectly!
I was skeptical at first because the tortillas felt very much like sand paper. Once they are warmed up though they will be a pleasant surprise. They come in both the small taco size and then burrito size. I am so happy to be able to use them not only on quesadillas but also for wraps as well!
I made these quesadillas using my panini press. I have to say they turned out so well and will be a staple on our busy cooking nights. These can be made with all your family favorites. I used leftover chicken that I shredded up and cheese. Then, we simply dipped ours in Homemade Salsa!
I was also happy that these did not fall apart on me. I have used corn tortillas in the past but almost always the corn tortilla falls apart on me before I’m even able to enjoy it. These stayed together very well and tasted the same as a gluten filled tortilla. I even had my husband taste test and he agreed. I think had he felt them and tried them without heating them up it would of been different; however, when heated they taste very good.
What else do I love about quesadillas? I can hide a variety of foods inside those and my picky eater will actually eat them! Perfection!
Quesadillas are so simple that no recipe is needed and amounts will vary depending on how many you plan to make; however, I have put it in Ziplist format for those that use it as a grocery list.
Chicken & Cheese Quesadillas
- Shredded Chicken
- Shredded Taco Style Cheese
- Sour Cream Guacamole, Salsa, Onions, Tomatoes
- Amounts and ingredients will vary depending on the amount you plan to make.
- Simply warm up a panini press then spray with non stick cooking spray. Place one tortilla on the bottom and fill with your toppings, then place the other tortilla on top and press the panini press together until the light comes on saying it's ready. At this point you would want to follow the instructions for your panini press. These can also be made in a quesadilla maker or on a skillet.
