    Separate for rolling: ½ cup Asian sweet rice flour

    Directions:
    Combine dry ingredients except rice flour into a bowl. Add ½ cup of milk or soy milk. Stir milk and flour together, blending well. Mix will be somewhat moist, but not runny.

    Sprinkle sweet rice flour liberally on a flat surface and knead dough to a smooth ball. Completely wrap in plastic wrap and let rest for about an hour.

    Remove from plastic. Divide into 10-12 portions and roll into balls. The less balls you make, the thicker the tortillas will be. Cover them with a damp cloth to keep them from drying out while rolling.

    Liberally sprinkle wooden cutting board or counter with sweet rice flour. Roll each ball of dough to a 10 inch round. Wood will release the dough easily, use wax paper or plastic if it sticks to your counter. You can also use a tortilla press to start the flattening process. Use a rolling pin to make a very flat and smooth tortilla.
    Cut into a circle with a knife by hand, or use a cooking pan lid that is the desired diameter, like you would a cookie cutter.

    If not cooking tortillas immediately, stack with wax paper or plastic in between the tortillas and store in an airtight container or baggie.
    Caution- leaving dough or tortillas exposed to the air will very quickly dry them out.

    Cook on a hot surface for about 30 seconds on each side. Use immediately, or store in a tightly sealed plastic bag.

    Reheat on a hot surface. DO NOT MICROWAVE. Keep unused tortillas in a sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator.

    These tortillas are the best! They fold and roll like wheat without cracking or crumbling.

In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014.

    I'm a sucker for traditional guacamole. But, believe it or not, I know a number of people who don't like onions, and a few who don't like tomatoes, so making traditional guacamole is out of the question for them.
    If you know anyone who likes avocados, but shies away from traditional guacamole, try this.
    This simple and quick recipe makes a great dip to serve with tortilla chips, and has won over even my pickiest friends.
    Ingredients:
    1-1½ ounces of Cotija cheese 1 or 2 ripe Avocados 1 lemon or lime wedge 1 or 2 sprigs of cilantro, optional 6-8 ounces of good tortilla chips Directions:
    Slice and dice avocados and place into a bowl....

    Chilaquiles is one of my all-time favorite Mexican dishes. Typically featured at breakfast or brunch, chilaquiles, like enchiladas, can be made with either red or green sauce, and can be garnished in a variety of ways. Anyone who likes enchiladas will likely take a shine to chilaquiles.
    This recipe features chilaquiles in a red sauce. It comes together quickly and will be a big hit with any lovers of Mexican food.
    Ingredients:
    1 dozen corn tortillas, best stale, or dried out a bit, cut into wedges
    1½ to 2 cups gluten-free red chile enchilada sauce (I use Hatch brand)
    Corn oil
    Salt
    Garnishes:
    Cotija cheese or queso fresco
