  1. I haven’t tried this brand of GF tortillas. I may need to. The Tillamook vintage white cheddar however is an absolute family fave.

  2. these look delicious. I’ve never tried gf tortillas although I’ve wanted to try the recipe for cauliflower tortillas. I’m sure this recipe could work with those though too

  3. I love that these quesadillas are gluten free (my father has celiac). Thank you for sharing!

    2) where do I get Tillamook Vintage White Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese
