Celiac Community Unites in this amazing GF Recipe! Katie over at House 54 shows of her genius-ness in this fabulous Tamale Pie Recipe. Besides it truly being fabulous, I love the story behind it. Family recipe, passed on,….the epitome of cooking if you ask me. Food is meant to be shared.
Besides Katie (& her gorgeous daughter Chloe, who has won over my heart through the pictures she posts) has a fabulous GF blog. Katie doesn’t know it but she inspires me to bring out my GlutenFree-nista. I have struggled to create family meals that everyone will like- celiac or not. I have gotten into the trap of separating my food from the families, for the most part, because its easier. While we have no official diagnosis (yet) as to the cause of my sons Gastrointestinal problems, we do know that him being 80%+ GF definitely helps him. So Drs. can continue in their direction & I’ll do the same thus = Happy Campers. With this recipe all of those issues above were avoided & everyone enjoyed this meal.
Btw, don’t hate on my assembly, much like life, I had planned this awesome meal when things came up & last min I was rushing to get it in the oven,….
1 lb ground Turkey (or beef)
1/2 a medium onion, diced
2 c. Mexican Cheese (mozzarella or cheddar cheese)
1/2 can Kidney Beans
1/2 can Pinto Beans
1/2 c. Corn
1/4 c. Red Bell Pepper (diced)
1/4 c. Green Bell Pepper (diced)
1/2 Jar Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime
1/4 c. of water
1/2 c. Salsa (GF)
1 1/2 tsp. Salt
Corn Tortillas (GF)
Preheat Oven to 375
- Dice your Onions, Peppers, set aside.
- Drain & Rinse your Beans, set aside.
- Saute your veggies w/ Salt & Pepper, set aside.
- Cook your beef ( tip, I do NOT cook all the way, until outside is browned- keeping it from drying out)
- Mix together 1/2 Jar of Fiesta Lime + 1/4 c. of Water; stir ’til combined (scrapping the bottom)
- Add Mrs. Dash to the ground turkey, bringing to a boil, stir ’til well combined.
- Add Sauteed Veggies + 1/2 c. of Salsa to your Beans, combine & drop into the ground turkey mixture.
- In the bottom of an 8×11 baking dish, spray with canola oil, layer your tortillas, overlapping, placing turkey/veggie/bean mixture on top, layer with cheese & repeating until all the meat is gone; before topping it all with cheese, using a pastry brush I ‘painted’ the top layer lightly with taco sauce & topped with more cheese.
