Tortilla Soup

Tortilla Soup

This week I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes with you Chicken Tortilla Soup, which is naturally (or at least it should be) gluten free. There are many of different ways and recipes for making Tortilla Soup.  I like this recipe because it doesn’t take as long as most recipes and a lot of the work is done for you in a blender or food processor.  I was joined by my fellow Lipstick Sisters Stephanie Kwong and Lisa Kiyomi in the making of my YouTube video too.  We had such a great time sharing stories, bonding over food and enjoying the delicious rewards of our work (scroll to the bottom for some photos from the set).  Please let me know if you try the recipe and what you think.

Mexican Feast Part 1: Chicken Enchiladas

This is Part 1 of my Mexican Feast series, Chicken Enchiladas.  I love Chicken Enchiladas and they are naturally gluten free and full of flavor.  Hooray!!

As you may have picked up, I love Mexican Food…to me it’s just food.  When I learned I had to give up gluten, I was so happy to find out that I could continue to eat one of the biggest food types I eat…Mexican.  These enchiladas will take you about 1 1/2 hours to prepare from start to finish, you won’t have to be working the whole time but make sure you’re not hungry when you start making these.  I like to make these on the weekend and freeze the leftovers for lunch or fast dinners during the week.
