My friend Irina and I were recently wandering around the Whole Foods in Columbus Circle, and I was pleasantly pleased to find rice tortillas made by Food For Life. Unfortunately, my local Whole Foods does not stock them, but I might have to have a word or two with the manager about that.

I decided to make quesadillas with them. I used refried beans and a little bit of rice cheese for the "glue" to hold them together. I stuffed them with sautéed onions, peppers and mushrooms and then I baked them in the oven for a few minutes. Dennis whipped up some guacamole to top them with, and I made some sautéed chard and mixed them with a little bit of the pepper mixture that didn't fit in the quesadillas. The tortillas turned a little flakey in the oven, but that didn't take away from the taste at all - they were delicious! I'm going to be really upset if I can't get these tortillas locally!
