Chicken Corn Chowder GFDF

I need to be more willing to find a way to make things I used to eat, gluten and dairy free.

Here's one.....

Chicken Corn Chowder

2 cans creamed corn
4-6 medium potatoes
2 cups almond milk
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 onion
salt, pepper, cayenne, cumin

Melt the coconut oil in a pan, with the chopped onions.  Cook over low heat until tender.  Cut 4-5 cups of cubed potatoes, and add to the onion mixture.  Stir in the corn, milk and seasonings.  Let simmer until the potatoes are tender.  Could put in the crockpot all day to soften the potatoes, and blend the flavors together.
I also cooked chicken and diced it up fine to add to the soup.

Ham & Scalloped Potatoes GFDF

{no picture} forgot to take I guess. :)

I realized that the cream of mushroom was just milk thickened with chopped up mushrooms.  Since I don't really like mushrooms I may as well just use milk.  Since I can't have regular milk I just use almond milk.  Easy enough, right?!

Ham & Scalloped Potatoes
2-3 thick slices of ham cubed
bacon bits
1 onion finely chopped
salt, pepper, cumin
2 cups almond milk
8-10 medium potatoes

Cube ham, peel and slice the potatoes.  Mix all ingredients in your crockpot and let sit on low for 4-6 hours.  Stir occasionally.  Don't over cook or the potatoes will become mushy.  Still tastes good but doesn't look as pretty.

Homemade Taquitos

Rice Tortilla Shells
refried beans
any other taco toppings you like

Put a thin layer of refried beans over your taco shell.  After the hamburger is cooked and seasoned chop finely.  Put a thin layer of hamburger over the beans.  Roll the shell as tightly as possible.  Heat a shallow  pan with oil.  Once oil is very hot, place the "taquito" in the oil to crisp the shell.

*It's possible you might need a toothpick to help hold the shape while frying.  If so remember to take this out before serving. :)

Top with any of your favorite taco toppings!

Obviously if you are not gluten and dairy free, you can use a standard flour shell for this.
I suggest the rice shell because the corn shells fall apart too easily.  But next time I might try to find a way to soften them up so they don't fall apart.  I'll let you know when I find out.  In the mean time if you have already done it let me know!
