    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Celiac.com 12/10/2015 - Soups are a common part of many types of cuisine. This soup recipe offers a variation on the delicious chowder the Peruvians know as Chupe de Pollo. It marries chicken and broth with vegetables, herbs, spices, hominy and cream with a dash of adobo, and smokey chipotle pepper to produce a rich, hearty chowder fit for fair weather or foul.

    Finely chop 1 chipotle chile, and set 1 teaspoon adobo sauce aside separately.

    Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat.

    Add chopped chile, onion, chopped carrot, chopped celery, ground cumin, dried oregano, and dried thyme; cook 5-7 minutes, stirring often, until onion is tender.

    Stir in broth; bring to a boil. Add chicken; cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer about 30 minutes or until chicken is tender.

    Remove chicken without juice, and cool slightly. Shred chicken with 2 forks; cover and keep warm.

    Remove pan from heat; let cool 5 minutes.

    This next step is best done with an immersion blender, but if using a regular blender, use caution, and blend very small amounts at a time.

    Place one-quarter of broth mixture in a blender; process lightly and cautiously until smooth. Pour pureed broth mixture into a large bowl. Repeat in small batches with remaining broth mixture.

    Return pureed broth mixture to pan. Stir in potatoes and hominy; bring to a simmer over medium heat.

    Simmer, uncovered, for about 15-20 minutes, until potatoes are tender. Stir in cream and then the chicken; simmer a few more minutes.

    Remove from heat, and stir in reserved adobo sauce, tomato, cilantro, and salt. Serve with lime wedges.

    This chimichurri recipe blends olive oil, parsley, cilantro, shallot, garlic, oregano, red wine vinegar and lime juice to deliver a zesty, delicious accompaniment to grilled shrimp.
    1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 cloves garlic, minced Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste Chimichurri Ingredients:
    1 cup parsley leaves, stems removed 1 cup cilantro leaves, stems removed ½ cup mint leaves, chopped, optional ½ cup olive oil ½ cup red wine vinegar 3 cloves garlic, peeled 2 tablespoons fresh oregano 1 shallot, chopped ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes Juice of 1 lemon Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste Instructions:
    To make the chimichurri sauce, combine parsley, cilantro, shallot, garlic, oregano, red pepper flakes, red wine vinegar and lime juice in the bowl of a food processor; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

    Place shrimp on a hot grill, turning once, until they are fully cooked.
    I like to serve it with the chimichurri sauce on the side, but you could go bold and mix it together, if you like. Either way, they go great with your favorite gluten-free beer or ale.
