    Ingredients:

    • 2 cans gluten-free green chili enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand)
    • 1 small head cauliflower, roasted and chopped
    • 6 ounces chicken meat, browned
    • ½ cup cotija cheese, crumbled
    • ½ cup queso fresco, diced
    • 1 medium onion, diced
    • ⅓ cup green onions, minced
    • ¼ cup radishes, sliced
    • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
    • 1 cup chopped cabbage, for serving
    • ½ cup sliced cherry or grape tomatoes, for serving
    • ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
    • 1 dozen fresh corn tortillas 
    • ⅔ cup oil, for softening tortillas
    • 1 large avocado, cut into small chunks

    Note: For a tasty vegetarian version, just omit the chicken, double the roasted cauliflower, and prepare according to directions.

    Directions:
    Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a cast iron or ovenproof pan until hot.

    Add chicken and brown lightly on both sides. 

    Remove chicken to paper towels to cool.
     
    Cut cauliflower into small pieces and place in the oiled pan.

    Roast in oven at 350F until browned on both sides.

    Remove from the oven when tender. 

    Allow roasted cauliflower to cool.

    Chop cauliflower, or break into small pieces and set aside.

    Chop cooled chicken and set aside.

    Heat 1 inch of cooking oil in a small frying pan.

    When oil is hot, use a spatula to submerge a tortilla in the oil and leave only long enough to soften, about 10 seconds or so. 

    Remove soft tortilla to a paper towel and repeat with remaining tortillas.

    Pour enough enchilada sauce to coat the bottom of a large casserole pan.

    Dunk a tortilla into the sauce and cover both sides. Add more sauce as needed.

    Fill each tortilla with bits of chicken, cauliflower, onion, and queso fresco, and roll into shape.

    When pan is full of rolled enchiladas, top with remaining sauce.

    Cook at 350F until sauce bubbles.

    Remove and top with fresh cotija cheese and scallions.

    Serve with rice, beans, and cabbage, and garnish with avocado, cilantro, and sliced grape tomatoes.

    I love enchiladas. I love cheese enchiladas, chicken enchiladas, beef enchiladas. I love green enchiladas, I love red enchiladas. I love them rolled, I love them stacked.
    The key to great enchiladas lies in the sauce, and good enchilada sauce can be a labor of love. One shortcut is to use enchilada sauce from a can.
    The problem with many store-bought sauces is that they are made with wheat flour, and thus contain gluten. Many recipes also use flour to thicken the sauce. There are ways around that, of course, but I've experimented over the last months and found a great way to make delicious, authentic, and fairly quick enchilada sauce with no flour.
    Here's a recipe for a tasty, delicious red chili enchiladas that will have your family and friends wondering how you came to master the art of Mexican cooking so handily.
    These enchiladas are prepared in the stacked style common to New Mexico and west Texas. The process saves time and produces delicious enchiladas. In New Mexico and west Texas, it is common to serve them topped with a fried egg. This recipe follows that tradition, but the enchiladas are also delicious without the egg, and served with Mexican-style rice and refried beans.
    Ingredients:
    6 large eggs 15 ounces of Enchilada sauce (See recipe below) 4 tablespoons vegetable oil, separated 2 tablespoons lard or butter, separated 1 ½ pounds skinless boneless chicken breast 2 teaspoons cumin powder 1 teaspoons garlic powder 1 teaspoon Mexican Spice Blend (See recipe below) 12 corn tortillas 1 ½ cups grated cheddar cheese (6 ounces) 1 ½ cups grated Monterey Jack cheese (6 ounces) 1 cup canned corn, drained 5 canned whole green chiles, seeded and coarsely chopped 2 cups stewed tomatoes, drained and chopped ½ medium yellow onion, diced 1 teaspoon rice flour Salt and pepper Directions:
    Coat large sauté pan with oil. Season chicken with salt, pepper, and brown over medium heat for about 7 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Season with garlic powder and Mexican spices, and remove chicken to a platter, allow to cool. Sauté onion and garlic in chicken drippings until tender. Add corn, green chilies and stewed tomatoes. Stir well to combine, and sauté 1 minute. Pull chicken breasts apart by hand into shredded strips. Add shredded chicken to sauté pan with corn, green chilies, tomatoes and onions. Dust the mixture with rice flour to help set. Sauté 1 minute until mixed. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a large baking dish. In a skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil to medium heat. Cook each tortilla for about 30 seconds on each side (or until soft). Keep warm in a towel or a warmer. Divide chicken, green chili corn, tomato and onion mixture into four equal parts. Divide the cheese into four equal parts. To assemble the enchiladas, first coat the bottom of the baking dish with enchilada sauce. Next, take up to three tortillas and arrange them so the bottom of the baking dish is covered. Next add ¼ of the grated cheeses, and add ¼ of the chicken, corn, green chili, tomato and onion mixture. Add another tortilla, and add same amount of sauce, cheese, and chicken, corn, green chili, tomato and onion mixture. Add a third tortilla, and again top with sauce, cheese, chicken, corn, green chili, tomato and onion mixture. Repeat until you have four stacks. Bake enchiladas in the oven for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbling. While enchiladas are cooking, heat the remaining tablespoon of lard or oil in the cast-iron skillet and then fry the eggs two at a time (or however many will fit). To serve, place an enchilada stack on a plate and top with a fried egg.  
    Mexican Spice Blend
    Ingredients:
    2 tablespoons ground chili powder
    3 teaspoons ground cumin
    1 teaspoon ground paprika
    ½ teaspoon dried oregano
    ½ teaspoon garlic powder
    ½ teaspoon onion powder
    ½ teaspoon dried red pepper flakes
    Mix together and place in a jar for use as needed.
     
    Authentic Red Enchilada Sauce
    Ingredients:
    6 medium dried ancho chiles, dried
    4 medium guajillo chiles, dried
    4 cloves garlic, unpeeled
    ½ tsp black pepper
    ½ tsp ground cumin
    2 cups chicken broth
    1 teaspoon salt
    Juice of ¼ to ½ fresh lime
    Pinch of sugar, as needed
    Directions:
    Heat a heavy skillet or griddle over medium. Tear the chillies into flat pieces and, few at a time, press them against the hot surface with a metal spatula, flip them over and press again; you will see them blister and change color.
    Soak chilies in hot water for at least an hour, preferably 2 -3 hours. Reserve a cup of the soaking water.
    Roast the garlic in the pan for about 15 minutes, turning regularly, until almost blackened, and soft inside. Remove from the pan, allow to cool and then peel.
    Remove the stems from the chiles and puree in a blender with all the other ingredients, except the lime juice and sugar.
    The sauce will be thick. I like a thicker enchilada sauce, but if you like, you can make the sauce thinner by adding a bit of the water from the soaked chilies, as you like. Add sugar as desired. I also like to add a couple squeezes of fresh lime juice for a bit of extra tartness.
    You can place any extra sauce in a jar and keep it in the fridge for many weeks.

    Celiac.com 12/02/2017 - Pozole, pozole, pozole. Pozole seems to be popular lately. Pozole is a hominy-based Mexican stew closely associated with the Pacific-coast state of Guerrero.
    I've noticed a number of references to pozole lately. I've seen articles touting pozole in place of traditional turkey dinner for Thanksgiving, and articles about using leftover Thanksgiving turkey to make pozole.
    This tasty recipe calls for chicken, but you can easily substitute turkey, leftover or otherwise. When stewed in chicken broth and other tasty ingredients like tomatillos, green chiles.
    Ingredients:
    Three 15-ounce cans of hominy, drained 8 cups chicken stock 2 cups water 6 chicken thighs on the bone, with skin 1 pound tomatillos, husked and halved 1 medium onion, quartered 2 poblano chiles, cored, seeded and quartered 2 jalapeños, seeded and quartered 6 large garlic cloves, smashed 1 tablespoon oregano leaves Salt and freshly ground black pepper 1 tablespoon vegetable oil For Serving:
    Finely shredded cabbage Fresh Mexican cheese (queso fresco) chopped cilantro sliced radishes chopped onion diced avocado sour cream tortilla chips lime wedges Directions:
    In a large stock pot, bring the chicken stock and water to a boil. Add the chicken thighs, cover and simmer over very low heat until they're tender and cooked through, about 30 minutes.
    Skim any fat from the cooking liquid and reserve.
    In a blender, combine the halved tomatillos with the quartered onion, poblanos and jalapeños, smashed garlic, chopped cilantro and oregano.
    Blend until coarsely chopped. With the machine on, add 1 cup of the cooking liquid and purée until smooth.
    Season with salt and pepper.
    In a large deep skillet, heat the vegetable oil.
    Add the tomatillo purée and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the sauce turns a deep green, about 10 minutes.
    Pour the green sauce into the cooking liquid in the stock pot.
    Add the hominy and bring to a simmer over moderate heat.
    Add the chicken thighs back to the stew, season with salt and pepper and cook just until heated through.
    Serve the pozole in deep bowls, and garnish as desired with quest fresco, cabbage, radishes, onion, avocado, sour cream, tortilla chips and lime wedges at the table.

    12 ounces thinly sliced cooked beef, sliced 6 burrito-sized gluten-free tortillas 1 ripe medium avocado, diced 1 large tomato, diced ½ medium red onion, thinly sliced ¼ cup mayonnaise 2 ears sweet corn, husks and silk removed 1 teaspoon olive oil ¾ cup soft cream cheese spread 1-2 teaspoons gluten-free hot sauce of choice Sprouted pea greens, as desired fresh salsa, as desired Directions:
    Heat grill to medium-hot. 
    Brush corn with olive oil. 
    In a small dish, blend mayonnaise and hot sauce. Adjust mixture, and add fresh salsa, as desired.
    Grill corn for 8 to 12 minutes, turning as it browns and lowering heat as needed until corn is tender and charred in some places. 
    Cool slightly; cut kernels from cobs.
    Spread 2 tablespoons cream cheese on one side of each tortilla to within ½-inch of edge; arrange beef slices to cover.
    Spread beef with mayonnaise hot sauce mixture as desired.
    Place a bit of grilled corn kernels, avocado, tomato and red onion in a 3-inch strip along one edge of each tortilla.

    Celiac.com 07/20/2018 - During my Vipassana retreat, I wasn’t left with much to eat during breakfast, at least in terms of gluten free options. Even with gluten free bread, the toasters weren’t separated to prevent cross contamination. All of my other options were full of sugar (cereals, fruits), which I try to avoid, especially for breakfast. I had to come up with something that did not have sugar, was tasty, salty, and gave me some form of protein. After about four days of mixing and matching, I was finally able to come up with the strangest concoction, that may not look the prettiest, but sure tastes delicious. Actually, if you squint your eyes just enough, it tastes like buttery popcorn. I now can’t stop eating it as a snack at home, and would like to share it with others who are looking for a yummy nutritious snack. 
    Ingredients:
    4 Rice cakes ⅓ cup of Olive oil  Mineral salt ½ cup Nutritional Yeast ⅓ cup of Sunflower Seeds  Intriguing list, right?...
    Directions (1.5 Servings):
    Crunch up the rice into small bite size pieces.  Throw a liberal amount of nutritional yeast onto the pieces, until you see more yellow than white.  Add salt to taste. For my POTS brothers and sisters, throw it on (we need an excess amount of salt to maintain a healthy BP).  Add olive oil  Liberally sprinkle sunflower seeds. This is what adds the protein and crunch, so the more, the tastier.  Buen Provecho, y Buen Camino!

    Celiac.com 07/19/2018 - Maintaining a gluten-free diet can be an on-going challenge, especially when you factor in all the hidden or obscure gluten that can trip you up. In many cases, foods that are naturally gluten-free end up contain added gluten. Sometimes this can slip by us, and that when the suffering begins. To avoid suffering needlessly, be sure to keep a sharp eye on labels, and beware of added or hidden gluten, even in food labeled gluten-free.  Use Celiac.com's SAFE Gluten-Free Food List and UNSAFE Gluten-free Food List as a guide.
    Also, beware of these common mistakes that can ruin your gluten-free diet. Watch out for:
    Watch out for naturally gluten-free foods like rice and soy, that use gluten-based ingredients in processing. For example, many rice and soy beverages are made using barley enzymes, which can cause immune reactions in people with celiac disease. Be careful of bad advice from food store employees, who may be misinformed themselves. For example, many folks mistakenly believe that wheat-based grains like spelt or kamut are safe for celiacs. Be careful when taking advice. Beware of cross-contamination between food store bins selling raw flours and grains, often via the food scoops. Be careful to avoid wheat-bread crumbs in butter, jams, toaster, counter surface, etc. Watch out for hidden gluten in prescription drugs. Ask your pharmacist for help about anything you’re not sure about, or suspect might contain unwanted gluten. Watch out for hidden gluten in lotions, conditioners, shampoos, deodorants, creams and cosmetics, (primarily for those with dermatitis herpetaformis). Be mindful of stamps, envelopes or other gummed labels, as these can often contain wheat paste. Use a sponge to moisten such surfaces. Be careful about hidden gluten in toothpaste and mouthwash. Be careful about common cereal ingredients, such as malt flavoring, or other non-gluten-free ingredient. Be extra careful when considering packaged mixes and sauces, including soy sauce, fish sauce, catsup, mustard, mayonnaise, etc., as many of these can contain wheat or wheat by-product in their manufacture. Be especially careful about gravy mixes, packets & canned soups. Even some brands of rice paper can contain gluten, so be careful. Lastly, watch out for foods like ice cream and yogurt, which are often gluten-free, but can also often contain added ingredients that can make them unsuitable for anyone on a gluten-free diet. Eating Out? If you eat out, consider that many restaurants use a shared grill or shared cooking oil for regular and gluten-free foods, so be careful. Also, watch for flour in otherwise gluten-free spices, as per above. Ask questions, and stay vigilant.

    Celiac.com 07/18/2018 - Despite many studies on immune development in children, there still isn’t much good data on how a mother’s diet during pregnancy and infancy influences a child’s immune development.  A team of researchers recently set out to assess whether changes in maternal or infant diet might influence the risk of allergies or autoimmune disease.
    The team included Vanessa Garcia-Larsen, Despo Ierodiakonou, Katharine Jarrold, Sergio Cunha,  Jennifer Chivinge, Zoe Robinson, Natalie Geoghegan, Alisha Ruparelia, Pooja Devani, Marialena Trivella, Jo Leonardi-Bee, and Robert J. Boyle.
    They are variously associated with the Department of Undiagnosed Celiac Disease More Common in Women and Girls International Health, Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America; the Respiratory Epidemiology, Occupational Medicine and Public Health, National Heart and Lung Institute, Imperial College London, London, United Kingdom; the Section of Paediatrics, Department of Medicine, Imperial College London, London, United Kingdom; the Centre for Statistics in Medicine, University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom; the Division of Epidemiology and Public Health, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, United Kingdom; the Centre of Evidence Based Dermatology, University of Nottingham, Nottingham, United Kingdom; and Stanford University in the USA.
    Team members searched MEDLINE, Excerpta Medica dataBASE (EMBASE), Web of Science, Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), and Literatura Latino Americana em Ciências da Saúde (LILACS) for observational studies conducted between January 1946 and July 2013, and interventional studies conducted through December 2017, that evaluated the relationship between diet during pregnancy, lactation, or the first year of life, and future risk of allergic or autoimmune disease. 
    They then selected studies, extracted data, and assessed bias risk. They evaluated data using the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE). They found 260 original studies, covering 964,143 participants, of milk feeding, including 1 intervention trial of breastfeeding promotion, and 173 original studies, covering 542,672 participants, of other maternal or infant dietary exposures, including 80 trials of 26 maternal, 32 infant, or 22 combined interventions. 
    They found a high bias risk in nearly half of the more than 250 milk feeding studies and in about one-quarter of studies of other dietary exposures. Evidence from 19 intervention trials suggests that oral supplementation with probiotics during late pregnancy and lactation may reduce risk of eczema. 44 cases per 1,000; 95% CI 20–64), and 6 trials, suggest that fish oil supplementation during pregnancy and lactation may reduce risk of allergic sensitization to egg. GRADE certainty of these findings was moderate. 
    The team found less evidence, and low GRADE certainty, for claims that breastfeeding reduces eczema risk during infancy, that longer exclusive breastfeeding is associated with reduced type 1 diabetes mellitus, and that probiotics reduce risk of infants developing allergies to cow’s milk. 
    They found no evidence that dietary exposure to other factors, including prebiotic supplements, maternal allergenic food avoidance, and vitamin, mineral, fruit, and vegetable intake, influence risk of allergic or autoimmune disease. 
    Overall, the team’s findings support a connection between the mother’s diet and risk of immune-mediated diseases in the child. Maternal probiotic and fish oil supplementation may reduce risk of eczema and allergic sensitization to food, respectively.
    Stay tuned for more on diet during pregnancy and its role in celiac disease.

    Celiac.com 07/17/2018 - What can fat soluble vitamin levels in newly diagnosed children tell us about celiac disease? A team of researchers recently assessed fat soluble vitamin levels in children diagnosed with newly celiac disease to determine whether vitamin levels needed to be assessed routinely in these patients during diagnosis.
    The researchers evaluated the symptoms of celiac patients in a newly diagnosed pediatric group and evaluated their fat soluble vitamin levels and intestinal biopsies, and then compared their vitamin levels with those of a healthy control group.
    The research team included Yavuz Tokgöz, Semiha Terlemez and Aslıhan Karul. They are variously affiliated with the Department of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition, the Department of Pediatrics, and the Department of Biochemistry at Adnan Menderes University Medical Faculty in Aydın, Turkey.
    The team evaluated 27 female, 25 male celiac patients, and an evenly divided group of 50 healthy control subjects. Patients averaged 9 years, and weighed 16.2 kg. The most common symptom in celiac patients was growth retardation, which was seen in 61.5%, with  abdominal pain next at 51.9%, and diarrhea, seen in 11.5%. Histological examination showed nearly half of the patients at grade Marsh 3B. 
    Vitamin A and vitamin D levels for celiac patients were significantly lower than the control group. Vitamin A and vitamin D deficiencies were significantly more common compared to healthy subjects. Nearly all of the celiac patients showed vitamin D insufficiency, while nearly 62% showed vitamin D deficiency. Nearly 33% of celiac patients showed vitamin A deficiency. 
    The team saw no deficiencies in vitamin E or vitamin K1 among celiac patients. In the healthy control group, vitamin D deficiency was seen in 2 (4%) patients, vitamin D insufficiency was determined in 9 (18%) patients. The team found normal levels of all other vitamins in the healthy group.
    Children with newly diagnosed celiac disease showed significantly reduced levels of vitamin D and A. The team recommends screening of vitamin A and D levels during diagnosis of these patients.
