Recipe Information

# of Servings: 6
Recipe Created By: Amy Hugon


6 medium tortillas (wheat or rice based)
1 1/2 cups diced cooked chicken or turkey
2 apples, chopped
1/2 avocado, chopped
3 Tbsp raisins
1/2 cup shredded dairy or soy cheddar cheese (optional)
1/2 cup dairy or soy mozzarella cheese (optional)
1 large or 3 small tomatoes, chopped
3/4 cup salsa, preferably with a fruit flavor (I used pineapple-peach salsa)
dairy, soy, or rice sour cream (optional)
pan spray or oil


In large bowl, mix all ingredients except tortillas and sour cream. Put about 1/2 cup of mixture in the middle of each tortilla, and fold tortilla in half. Place on pan-sprayed cookie sheet.

Bake at 400 °F for 8 minutes. Turn over, and bake an additional 8 minutes. Cut each quesadilla into thirds for easier handling, and serve topped with sour cream if desired.


I used rice tortillas and no cheese, and added rice sour cream, to avoid top 8. Note that rice sour cream contains corn.

Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn. Consult with your physician to find out which corn derivatives you need to avoid. Many corn-free options are available in the US. Find out more about corn substitutions.
Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.
