In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
This recipe serves 3 to 4.
3 or 4 chicken thighs, simmered in salted water until very tender (about 40 minutes)
6 soft corn tortillas
1 - 12-oz jar salsa Verde (green salsa, I used La Victoria brand)
3 or 4 ounces crumbled or shredded white cheese (white cheddar, Monterey Jack or goat cheese)
Bone chicken and slightly shred meat with two forks. Stir in about 1/3 of the salsa to moisten and season the chicken. Spread a little dab of salsa on the bottom of a 2 quart casserole dish. (An oblong casserole dish with rounded ends works best.) Put a couple tortillas in the bottom of the pan over the salsa. Spread half the chicken mixture on top of that. Sprinkle with a little cheese. Add a couple more tortillas, the rest of the chicken mixture and a little more cheese. Lay on the last two tortillas, spread with remaining salsa and the rest of the cheese. Bake at 350F until heated through and a little bubbly (about 30 minutes).
