Sharing my first recipe over here in what feels like forever but I’ve been on a cooking kick the last month or so, as well as a quesadilla and hot sauce kick (weird combo – no I am not pregnant) so I thought I would share with you amazing mommas some of my fun yummy creations I came up with over summer.

Gluten Free Quesadilla

Taking myself on a lunch date is one of my favorite ways to be selfish, it can also hit the bank account pretty rough and pack on extra calories when I decide to do it everyday when the kids are back in school and maybe I hit up my favorite ramen place too many times in one week. Oops. Decided this back to school year I was going to practice a little more discipline in my eating out and cook more lunches at home.

We recently made some choices in our family to go gluten free. After a rough summer with behavior issues from our six year old and LOTS of research I found that gluten (as well as other foods) were huge determining factors with behaviors. Makes perfect sense! Think of how you feel after you eat a meal? When its healthy you feel amazing, full, maybe even energized! When its loaded with crap you might feel like a nap am I right?

This didn’t settle well with mine and Sophia’s new love for all thinks quesadillas. We looked high and low to find a tortilla that we both liked as well as fit the dietary needs of Jay and then we found this little gem….

BFree Foods prides themselves on creating an entire line of foods that are wheat and gluten free. They have everything from wraps to pita bread to regular bread and even pizza crust….No this is not an affiliate post I just really love these products! I’ve personally only tried the one wrap but I’m excited to try some of their other amazing products and was shocked to find them at our local Kroger (even better!) This bad boy here was a staple ingredient for our Buffalo Chicken Quesadillas.

I feel like everyone has a favorite condiment right? Like if loving Hidden Valley Ranch is wrong than I just don’t want to be right. Well move over ranch dressing because there is a new condiment in my life and I’m currently obsessed with it. Not to mention its a healthy alternative – an no its not ranch but it does pair nicely with it and I’m currently putting it on all the things including this quesadilla.

Nobel Made by the New Primal has snacks, jerky and of course condiments that are both Whole30 and Paleo approved! Currently we have tried the Hot Buffalo Sauce, The BBQ sauce and the meat sticks (which are pretty popular in our house) and all of them are delicious PLUS 0g of SUGAR. As an ex Hooters girl (I know I know lol) this hot sauce is ammmmmaaazzzing.

So obviously you can make a Buffalo Chicken Quesadilla with any old ingredients but what I  told you this entire quesadilla was roughly 300 Calories and completely gluten free? Give it a try and I’d love to know what you think!

Buffalo Chicken Quesadilla

Serves 2

What you need: 

1 BFree Multigrain Wrap

1/4 Cup of Shredded Rotisserie Chicken

1/4 Cup Shredded Cheese of Your choice (Personally we always have the Whole Foods Mexican Blend on hand for taco nights)

1/2 Cup of shredded lettuce for topping

OPTIONAL: any other added toppings you like (sour cream, salsa, black olives, jalapeños, guac, or pico)
  1. Heat non-stick pan on medium heat. TIP: Don’t even bother spraying the pan, I have found that the wrap doesn’t stick while cooking and you don’t even need too!
  2. While pan is heating take 1 Teaspoon of New Primal HOT Buffalo sauce & Shredded chicken, put both in a ziplock bag, close and shake until chicken is evenly covered in sauce.
  3. Place BFree wrap in pan and place 1/2 the cheese on one side of the wrap, then place chicken, then top with remaining cheese, then fold over wrap quesadilla style. TIP: putting cheese both under and over chicken makes sure all the goodies inside do fall out as you take it out of the pan.
  4. Cook on each side about 4-5 minutes (really depends on how crispy you like your tortilla) and remove from pan.
  5. Cut in to four even pieces and plate (two each). Top each plate with shredded lettuce and any toppings you like and enjoy!

Y’all its delicious, takes about 10 minutes to make, gluten free and around 300 calories – do yourself a favor and add this to your lunch or dinner rotations. If eating at dinner don’t forget to add some fajita style peppers and onions. Want more veggies in your life?Add steamed broccoli leftovers in there! To make this kid friendly simply omit New Primal Hot sauce and replace with their amazing and yummy BBQ sauce!
