    This recipe comes to us from Jack and Laurie Tepe.

    Here is the gluten free flour tortilla recipe that I want to eventually use with an electric tortilla press. Thanks to those list members that looked around for one for me in their areas. Currently Im waiting to get one shipped! This recipe is from the Denver Metro/CSA Chapter:

    Basic Tortilla Mix:

    ¼ cup cornstarch
    ¼ cup tapioca flour
    ¼ cup potato starch flour
    ¼ cup white rice flour
    ¼ cup brown rice flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1-½ teaspoon xanthan gum
    1 generous teaspoon baking powder
    1-½ Tablespoon vegetable oil
    ½ cup water or more as needed

    Measure all dry ingredients in a sealed container and shake to mix. Add oil and water to mix. Let the dough rest 10 minutes for easier handling. Divide dough and roll into 10 to 12 balls. Flatten a ball slightly and place in the press and follow the press instructions. This recipe says to cook 30 seconds on each side, but you need to check and see if your press cooks on both sides at once.

    HINTS:

    It is suggested that you cook all the tortillas first and STACK them (and perhaps cover with a moist towel) so that they steam up a little and soften, otherwise they come out of the press sort of dry. Use the moistened flour immediately (can make the dry ingredients ahead of time). The recipe doubles well. If the tortillas have been refrigerated you should re-heat them before eating. Should roll tortillas (if desired) while they are warm and pliable. Can use two as bread for sandwiches. Also can use as pizzas or dessert crepes with fruit filling, etc.

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.

    This recipe comes to us from "Carriefaith" in the Gluten-Free Forum.
    1-2 cups of water
    1 package of chicken cut up for a stir fry
    5 peaches, diced
    1 yellow pepper, diced
    1 red onion, diced
    2-3 cloves of garlic
    cilantro leaves to taste
    optional (1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice)
    pepper to taste
    Cook chicken, garlic, and ½ of the red onion in the water until the chicken is done. I like to let the meat sit in the juices for a while. Place all other ingredients including the other ½ of the red onion in a bowl. Mix cooked ingredients with uncooked ingredients. Serve.
