Chicken Quesadillas With Black Rice Tortillas

Disclaimer: Food For Life provided me with product for this post. All opinions are my own.

Yesterday, I was in the cafeteria at work, watching a friend get a chicken quesadilla. Sadly, I brought my own lunch to work, so I couldn’t order one too. Which is why I made them for dinner instead!

I’ve been trying to figure out how I could use my Food For Life black rice tortillas, and thought this would be the perfect thing to whip up. It’s so easy to make because I only used 4 ingredients.

This was my first time trying this product by Food For Life (love their Ezekiel bread), and I was excited to try it because it was gluten free. I have also never tried anything made from black ride flour. Here are the ingredients:

Black Rice Flour, Organic Brown Rice Flour, Filtered Water, Organic Tapioca Flour, Safflower oil, Organic Chia Seeds, Rice Bran, Vegetable Gum (Xanthan Gum, Cellulose), Sea Salt. Certified Kosher by KOFK

The only comment I have about the tortillas is that they were kind of brittle, so it was hard to cut the quesadillas and have the wrap stay together. This is probably because it is gluten free.

I tried microwaving them first too, but it didn’t really help. Other than that, it tasted pretty good…it’s just that eating can get a bit messy!

What are your favorite quesadilla ingredients? If I wasn’t so lazy, I’d probably add in onions and peppers too ;)

  1. Ohh! We use the regular GF tortillas, but I’ve never seen the black rice ones! We usually put in sauteed onions and peppers as well as some tomatoes. We actually have a quesdilla maker that we use.
