    Celiac.com 06/23/2018 - If you’re looking for a great gluten-free Mexican-style favorite that is sure to be a big hit at dinner or at your next potluck, try these green chili enchiladas with roasted cauliflower. The recipe calls for chicken, but they are just as delicious when made vegetarian using just the roasted cauliflower. Either way, these enchiladas will disappear fast. Roasted cauliflower gives these green chili chicken enchiladas a deep, smokey flavor that diners are sure to love.

    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...

    Celiac.com 05/08/2014 - I love enchiladas, and I love soup, so this recipe was a natural.
    This soup is best done in a CrockPot or other type of slow cooker. Just toss the ingredients into the pot in the morning, turn it on, and come back around dinner time for rich, delicious chicken enchilada soup.
    Ingredients:
    2 pounds chicken thighs and legs 1 can whole kernel corn, drained (15 ounces) 1 can diced tomatoes including juice (14.5 ounces) 1 can pinto beans (15 ounces) 1 quart chicken broth 1 can gluten-free enchilada sauce (10 ounces) 1 can diced green chiles (4 ounces) 1 yellow onion, chopped ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro, as desired ...

    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...
