Poker Game Tonight. Any Recipe Ideas?

6 posts in this topic

So I need an idea for a recipe or maybe just some snacks that are gluten free. I'm going to play some cards with friends. There will be pizza and beer. It's usually a 5 hour game so I'll need something. Anything I could bring that would be easy to make and everyone could enjoy?


I miss pizza and beer sometimes :)

We love this!  I make a separate bowl for me and bring my own little bag of chips to keep people from cc'ing it with crackers.  I copied this and the amounts aren't there.  I'll fix it in a minute.  If it gets cool, just microwave again.

Jalapeno Popper Spread
8 oz cream cheese (can use non-fat)
4 oz can chopped green chiles
4 oz can chipotles in Adobo
1/2  cup sour cream (can be light)
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese

1. Cut open the Chipoltes & remove seeds. Then blend the chipotles & adobo sauce in a food processor. (or chop the pepper really small )
2. Mix them all together in an oven safe bowl  leaving half the Parm for a topping. Wipe sides of bowl or it just burns.
3. Top with the 1/4 cup of parm remaining
4. Bake at 400 F for 30 minutes or microwave for 5-10 minutes

5.  Serve with chips

We use the 7.5 oz can of San Marcos chipotles. We process them and use about 1/2 . This is very spicy with that much peppers.

I'm thinking that long nights playing poker aren't much different from long nights playing Magic. This is the sort of thing I would bring.




Or just this and tortillas and/or Snyder's gluten free pretzels which no other brand comes close to. Not even Glutino. My husband even kinda prefers them to regular pretzels.

I make something similar to this--serve with corn chips




Sorry I am too late for tonight's poker game, but maybe you can use it next time?  :)


Hope you're having a winning night. I love to play cards.


get some Green's, Bard's or New Planet beer to go with.


also, you could make these gluten-free Pizza Bombs


aka Gluten-Free Pao de Queijo “Chebe-Style” Pizza Rolls

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ¼ cup tapioca flour/starch
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ to ½ tsp pizza seasoning or Italian seasoning (or to taste)
  • 2 cups mozzarella cheese (or favorite gluten-free pizza cheese or blend)
  • ¼ cup melted butter
  • 1 cup of favorite pizza toppings, pre-cooked, drained, and cut into small pieces (e.g., pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers, onions)
  • Pizza sauce for dipping


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add eggs to large bowl. Beat slightly. Add other ingredients in order shown, stirring some after each addition. (Stir gently when adding tapioca flour as it tends to “jump” out of the bowl.) Once all ingredients have been added, stir well until ingredients are fully incorporated. I like to use a wooden spoon (gotta keep up one’s hand and arm strength).
  3. With lightly greased hands, form dough into balls about 1 ½ to 2 inches in diameter and place on the baking sheet about 2 inches apart. At this point, you can flatten the dough balls with your hands some if you wish, but I usually just leave mine “as is” to get more of the “bomb” effect (than roll effect). I also think that the centers turn out chewier this way.
  4. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes until golden brown.
  5. Let cool just a bit and then remove from baking sheet. Add to individual platter or plates and serve with pizza sauce (or sauce of choice) for dipping. Giving each person his/her own small container of dipping sauce will prevent that always present “double dipping” concern.
Makes about 15 “bombs,” about 2 ½ to 3 inches in diameter.

omg... I totally forgot something my husband thought up that he calls pizzadillas. Probably reheatable in a microwave. We just make quesadillas with corn tortillas with mozzarella, pizza sauce and pepperoni. I go with the thinnest layer of sauce so they aren't messy, or you could probably just use sauce for dipping too. They're really good and do taste like pizza. They'd be great for a game night.

    • Welcome!   It looks like your daughter is on her way to a celiac diagnosis.  Everyone is different, but I think you will have to wait until the biopsies come back from the Pathologist.  My endoscopy looked fine visually, yet my biopsies revealed intestinal damage (the villi are microscopic!)  The important thing at this point is that she must still be eating gluten daily for the endoscopy.  Once you get a diagnosis (sometimes labs lose stuff), then she can go gluten free.  Both an elevated TTG and EMA leans strongly to a celiac diagnosis and not something else. I would advise reading some books at your local library about celiac disease and read about it online too.  Read through the forum postings as they contain great tips.  We are here to help you with your questions.  
    • Welcome Tanya!   I know you must be suffering so!  Do you know if this is a celiac rash?  I do not have DH, but many of our members do.  Here is more information and possible treatment: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/understanding-celiac-disease-2/dermatitis-herpetiformis/ https://www.verywell.com/dapsone-short-term-relief-562992

    • Thanks cyclinglady, that makes me feel more confident to give it a try.  I really need more fat in my diet and nuts would really help right now.  I'm going to try this. Yeah, there may be days when I don't want to work so hard to get nuts out of the shells! I really hope my body lets me eat some nuts and seeds so I'm going to try adding them in slowly. Thanks again.
