    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    Celiac.com 10/22/2015 - Quinoa is one of those gluten-free grains that are packed with nutrients and fiber. But quinoa on its own can be a bit dull. This recipe features quinoa blended with garlic, onion, cumin, diced tomatoes spinach and beans, and stuffed into red bell peppers and roasted for a flavor-packed gluten-free vegetarian delight.

    As a kid, my mother always served the same store-bought potato salad. It came in a silo-sized tub and looked more like a jell-o mold than a summertime salad. This is not that potato salad. The red potatoes add a splash of color and play up the salty bacon and creamy buttermilk play nicely. You can substitute the milk with a few tablespoons of red wine vinegar for a little kick....

    I've been learning to love one pot, slow cook meals lately, and this southwest-inspired chicken dish is one of the results.
    It's easy to prepare and tasty to eat. I'm happy because I can put it on in the morning and have it ready for lunch or for dinner, depending on how high I cook it.
    Just prepare some rice, and you're ready for an easy, delicious dinner.

    I agree.  Clarification is needed.  
    That is not a celiac test result.  Celiac results are NOT reported as mg/dL.  It is most likely a total IgA result. Were there any other results?
    @faithjoy Interesting subject. Do you have celiac disease?   https://www.healthline.com/health/pregnancy/cryptic-pregnancy https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KSNLfuzJQGQ
