As a teenager, I worked at Del Taco, and I learned the fundamentals of cooking quesadillas there.  They are an extremely popular food. Of course we've modified their recipe to fit into our guidelines.  And I truly believe these taste better than Del Taco's version. 

Even if I wasn't on a gluten-free diet, I'd still eat these quesadillas.  These brown rice flour quesadillas are far better than standard wheat.  They are crunchy with just the right touch of flavor. 

Note:  The glycemic index of brown rice flour is moderate/high, but the cheese will significantly lower the GI because of the fat content contained within the cheese.

Best tip for how to make quesadillas:

You will first cut three chunks of block cheese and place them on either the upper or lower portion of the tortilla.

Fold the quesadilla so it looks like the picture below.  Please note, since we're using gluten free brown rice flour, the edges will break.  You do not need to fix this or do anything to reattach it because the cheese will hold it together when it's cooking.

Making quesadillas folded over with cheese

Put flame on medium heat.  Generously cover a large pan with butter, and place the quesadillas into the pan side by side.  Gently flatten the quesadillas with a spatula to encourage the sides to stick together.  Flip them over when they turn golden brown. The entire cooking process takes anywhere from two to three minutes.
