    • 1 pound fresh chicken breast, cubed
    • 1 cup packed cilantro leaves, plus extra for serving
    • ¼ cup lime juice, about 2 limes
    • ¼ cup gluten-free chicken broth
    • 3 scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces
    • 2 cloves garlic
    • 1 jalapeño, seeded
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
    • 1 red onion, cut into wedges
    • 2 bell peppers, quartered, seeds removed
    • 1 ripe avocado, halved, seeded and peeled
    • 1½ teaspoons olive oil
    • ¼ teaspoon ground cumin
    • ¼ teaspoon ground coriander
    • ¼ cup fat-free Greek Yogurt
    • ½ cup water

    Directions:
    Put the cilantro, lime juice, broth, scallions, garlic, jalapeño, honey, and salt in a blender, puree until smooth. Reserve 2 tablespoons; do not wash out the blender.

    Put chicken cubes in a medium bowl and the peppers and onions in another.

    Divide the remaining cilantro puree evenly between the chicken and the peppers and onions.

    Toss well to coat the chicken and vegetables and let stand, at room temperature, for 30 minutes.

    To the blender, add the avocado, ½ cup water, and the reserved 2 tablespoons cilantro sauce to the blender. Puree until smooth and season with salt. Set aside.

    Heat the oil in a small skillet set over medium heat until hot. Add the cumin and coriander and continue to cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Pour the spices over the yogurt and set aside for the flavors to blend.

    Reserving a bit for serving, divide yogurt mixture between the two marinating bowls of veggies and chicken marinate and mix. Marinate another 30 minutes.

    Once vegetables and chicken have marinated, skewer them in alternating between veggies and chicken, and grill, basting with lime juice. Drizzle with reserved sauce and serve.

    This recipe comes to us from jmreed in the Gluten-Free Forum.
    Ingredients:
    2 cups brown rice flour
    1 teaspoon xanthan Gum
    1 teaspoon sugar
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    2 eggs
    3 cup water
    2 tablespoon olive oil
    Directions:
    First mix all the dry ingredients into a bowl. Add the wet ingredients and mix well. Pour 1/3 a cup of the mixture into a good nonstick medium sized frying pan (I have also made these on a griddle but that requires picking up the griddle and tilting it to make larger rounds). Tilt the pan in alternating directions to cover the bottom of the pan. Cook on medium-high heat until the edges begin to pull up from the pan. You will need to pull up on the edge (fingers work better than a spatula - but be careful) and flip the tortilla. If the tortilla breaks try cooking it longer before flipping or you may need to use non-stick spray on the pan. Flip the tortilla ever 2 minutes or so until it puffs up like a balloon. After each tortilla you will need to let the pan cool down a little before starting the next one(Otherwise you get holes in the tortillas - I use 3 pans and alternate between them). Let the tortillas cool for 10 minutes or so and they will become flimsy. This recipe makes approximately 12 tortillas.

    Okay, so pretty much all guacamole is naturally gluten free. Still, guacamole is one of the summertime treats that fuel California, and many other lucky places. High in protein, vitamins, and beneficial oils, and blessed with a wonderful rich flavor, avocados are one of earth's true superfoods. This guacamole will keep folks coming back for more.
    Ingredients:
    3-4 ripe avocados
    1 lemon or 2 limes
    ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
    ¼ cup sweet onion, chopped (optional)
    When it comes to guacamole ingredients, less is more. I generally only use avocado and lime or lemon in my guacamole.
    I never put tomatoes in guacamole, as the acidity works against the avocado. The same is true of onion. I don't use it in guacamole. I simply serve salsa that includes onion and tomato along side the guacamole, so guests can mix as they like. That way they may mix tomatoes and onions in the salsa with the guacamole, or simply savor the rich, full taste of the avocado.
    Directions:
    Slice avocados in half and spoon flesh into a large bowl. Discard pits and skin. Mash with a fork and fold, or, for chunkier guacamole, simply run a thin bread knife through the avocados in multiple directions and fold gently until desired mixture is reached.
    Serve with chips, tomato salsa, and/or green chili salsa.
    Tip: Mix guacamole with Herdez salsa verde and cilantro and serve with any white fish. Yum!

    One of the best things I ever ate was the green-chile stew I had at a restaurant in Taos, New Mexico the name of which I don't remember. Still the stew of local, fresh roasted green chiles, squash, corn and pork stays in my mind to this day.
    Anyone who has ever spent time in New Mexico can likely attest to the New Mexicans' love affair with the green chile. Anyone who's tried the fresh, green chile stew has likely thought about having more one day. They make green chile stew all over New Mexico, and they make it many different ways, but it always comes out delicious.
    If you can't get fresh roasted green chiles, then try to find frozen diced chiles at your local market. This recipe makes enough to serve eight people.
    Ingredients:
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    2 pounds cubed pork stew meat
    1½ large yellow onion, diced
    5 cloves garlic, minced
    3 cups chopped, roasted green chiles
    1 can diced tomatoes with juice (14.5 ounces)
    2 yellow squash, cut in one-inch cubes
    1 cup fresh steamed, or frozen corn kernels
    1 can pinto beans, drained (16 ounces)
    1½ cups tomatillo salsa
    6 cups chicken broth
    1 teaspoon dried oregano
    ½ teaspoon chili powder
    ½ teaspoon paprika
    ¼ teaspoon ground clove
    salt and pepper to taste
    Directions:
    Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Season the pork with salt, pepper, paprika and chile powder, and add to pot. Cook until well-browned on all sides.
    Remove browned pork and set aside. Lower heat to medium, and stir in the onion, garlic and squash. Cook and stir until the onion is soft and clear.
    Return the pork to the pot, and stir in the green chiles, corn, diced tomatoes with juice, tomatillo salsa, and chicken broth. Add oregano and ground clove.
    Raise heat to medium-high, and quickly bring a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 30 minutes.
    After 30 minutes, spoon off 2 cups of the soup, making certain it contains NO pork pieces, and pour into a blender.
    Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree until smooth, then pour back into the cooking pot.
    This is a good way to thicken the stew and eliminate some of the chunkier pieces.
    Continue to simmer at least 30 minutes to one hour more, stirring occasionally, until the pork is very tender.
    Serve with rice, beans and corn tortillas.
