Gluten Free Lentil Quesadilla Recipe

Are you looking for the perfect gluten free recipe for Cinco De Mayo and meatless Monday? Look no further gluten free lentil quesadillas, they are the perfect fit. These are a huge hit with the entire family. The 3 year old was happy, the 11 month old love the lentils and the hubby loved them. How often do you hit a trifecta like that?

For a special grown up treat Cinco de Mayo wouldn't be complete with out Margarita Jello Shots on the side!

Lentil Ingredients:
1 cups of lentils (pre-soaked overnight)
2 cups vegetable stock
1 cup tomato sauce
2 tbs cumin
2 tbs chili powder
1 tbs garlic powder
1 tbs red chili pepper flakes

Other Ingredients needed:
4 brown rice tortillas
1 cup shredded cheese
1 avocado
.5 cup Greek yogurt

Start by placing all of the ingredients for the lentils in the crock pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours. When the lentils are cooked you can create the quesadilla. 

Pre-heat the oven to 350. Place two brown rice tortillas on a baking pan and layer it with lentils and cheese. Then add the remaining two brown rice tortillas on top of the two on the baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Serve with a side of avocado and Greek yogurt!!
