Homemade Gluten-free Ranch Style Beans

I am a person who loves Ranch Style Beans. I love them as a side with BBQ, I love them with Mexican dishes. I know that some people say that Ranch Style Beans are safe for people with celiac disease, but I also know that plenty of folks prefer to make their own food, just to be sure.

Below is a recipe for a homemade version of Ranch Style brand beans that is sure to please even the pickiest bean lovers. These beans go great with rice and make a fine side anytime you barbecue or grill.

1 pound dry pinto beans
5 cups cold water
2 teaspoons gluten-free chicken bouillon
4 ounces ham hocks
6 ancho chiles, stems and seeds removed
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
¼ cup tomato puree (add in the last 30 minutes of cooking)
¼ teaspoon liquid smoke
1 ½ tablespoons brown sugar, divided
½ teaspoons red chili powder
½ teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon oregano
1 cup of water
1 teaspoon seasoning salt (add in the last 30 minutes of cooking)

Heat a cast-iron skillet to medium high, cook the anchos on each side for a couple of minutes, until they start to bubble and pop, turn off the heat and fill the skillet with warm water. Let chilis soak until soft and re-hydrated, which should happen after half an hour or so.

In the same pot you use for the beans, heat up a teaspoon of canola oil and cook the onions for ten minutes on medium. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.

Toss cooked onions and garlic in a blender and add the tomatoes, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, paprika, cumin, oregano, water and hydrated ancho chilis. Puree until smooth.

Add the pinto beans and broth to the pot and stir in the chili puree. On high, bring the pot to a boil and then cover; turn the heat down to low and simmer for two and a half hours, stirring occasionally.

When you're satisfied that the beans are done, salt and pepper to taste.

Feeds four to six.

The recipe calls for tomatoes and chile puree but only lists tomatoe puree in the ingredients. I'm confused.

That is the "chili puree."

I was wondering if anyone had any advice to help get rid of low back pain caused by inflammation, I never had back pain until I went to a physical therapist for my tingling in my legs, they told me it was from a lower back issue, however I now realized the tingling was from the celiac.

Not on Dapsone, but have found that OTC corticosteroid cream helps lesions clear more quickly and helps with the pigmentation a bit. You don't want to overdo it with the cream as it thins your skin, so only apply to affected areas for a short period of time. Coconut oil (the kind you eat) applied to your skin helps with the dryness and seems to help healing a bit. I would recommend Squirmingitch's advice - go with the Fasano diet. At the very least, avoid eating foods prepared by anyone but you at all costs and try to stay away from open flour/baking. Many celiacs claim to get away with doing these things (and maybe they truly do), but when your reaction manifests externally, it's difficult to pretend that risky behaviours are going below your immune system's radar.

The Rash and various other symptoms are strong signs of Celiac, multiple people in your family also have it. I see several of your symptoms as very familiar to me myself, and I know that supplementation will help resolve the rest of your issues with a gluten-free diet. While we do suggest getting tested for confirmation if your limited as you say with insurance, and money then doing what is best for your health should be your focus right now. Go ahead and remove the gluten from your diet if you wish and go gluten free. If something happens later you MIGHT be able to put up with a gluten challenge and get tested at a later time. I feel for you and see the issues, I have Medicaid myself and my severe gluten reactions and allergies got me on disability for a good while. Testing was a pain in the ass for me as finding a doctor that takes Medicaid is bloody near impossible where I live. I do suggest supplementing Magnesium, Iron, Vitamin D, and B vitamins primarily right now. Others you might be low in are folate, E,C,A and various others. The nerve issues are strongly related to various b vitamins, magnesium, and D. I will share a link of what I take for a example. BTW have you checked out the newbie 101 thread? And if you need help finding gluten-free foods I have a huge list that I have complied for people although we normally suggest a whole foods diet only for the first month or so. Might want to drop dairy and oats for a bit, by the sound of your deficiency issues I would say it would be a huge help doing so. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/ https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/116482-supplement-and-foods-you-take/

It is meant to show you are a real person not a spammer. Not sure if it works anymore. Only Admin can see it and he doesn't do anything with it.

MelissaNZ, Has your daughter been checked for vitamin deficiencies??? Vitamin D deficiency symptoms include urinary incontinence, oral candidiasis (thrush), skin rashes, bumps on the backs of arms, joint pain, distended stomach and short stature. Bones can't grow much without vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency causes delayed gastric emptying (food doesn't move through the gastrointestinal tract at a normal speed and the intestines bloat) which explains your daughter's delayed reaction to the cake. Vitamin A deficiency is also a cause of bumps on the back of the arms. Vitamin A deficiency causes vision problems. Vitamin A and D are both fat soluble vitamins. Absorption of fats is a problem for Celiacs. So is absorption of B vitamins and important minerals. B Complex vitamins are water soluble and must be replenished every day. Skin rashes are associated with several B vitamins like niacin (B3), B12, and thiamine (B1). I went through a period of severe malnutrition prior to diagnosis. It was not a pleasant experience. I had symptoms similar to your daughter's, including the incontinence, which resolved on vitamin D supplementation. Please, please have your daughter tested for vitamin D deficiency. And have her B vitamins checked as well. Celiac Disease causes malabsorption. Malabsorption causes deficiency diseases. Newly diagnosed Celiacs need to be checked for deficiencies. I hope this helps.
