    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.

    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.

    Squeeze lemon or lime juice over avocados. This will help to keep them from turning brown in the unlikely event that the bowl does not get emptied quickly.

    Crumble cotija cheese and gently fold together with the avocados.

    Garnish with cilantro sprigs. If you like cilantro, then consider chopping some up and placing it in a bowl next to the avocado/cotija mixture. Add more or less avocado or cheese to suit your taste.

    Serve alongside a bowl of chips and your favorite salsa.

    Very informative web site. We have a meeting here every month and value the information we get to pass on to new members.

    We still have many doctors that do not believe or know that Gluten Intolerance and celiac disease is real and causes many health problems.

    Before outdoor grilling becomes a casualty of summer's end, I thought I'd offer up one more great gluten-free grilling recipe, with two delicious sauces.
    Grilled fish is one of my favorite treats. I like to make it in the summer, as it's easy to prepare. For this recipe, I prefer swordfish, although halibut, cod, sea bass, trout,
    Mahi-mahi, red snapper, or any other favorite will do. Basically, this recipe will work with any white fish that will hold up to grilling.
    To make this recipe, first prepare the avocado salsa verde. Next, prepare the beurre blanc. Lastly, grill your favorite white fish. When fish is done, top sauce or salsa of choice...
