When you want to pull out all the stops and make an impressive gluten-free chicken recipe, these crispy tacos should be top of your list. The secret is using almond flour in both the chicken breading and our delicious Almond Flour Tortillas; it provides a subtle depth of flavor without the gluten! When preparing your breading mixture, make sure to include plenty of spices (garlic, paprika, cayenne) for flavor and shredded coconut for texture. Place your baked crispy chicken in a warmed tortilla, top with some homemade lime crema, and enjoy!

Traditional Mexican flavors, but gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan? Check and check. These tacos combine all of the rich flavors you’d find in a traditional “al pastor” recipe with our vegan and gluten-free Grain Free Tortillas. The combination of tangy citrus from pineapple and lime and smoky spice from adobo sauce and chipotles is a unique flavor profile that you don’t want to miss. By making a thick, creamy sauce from these ingredients that coats your grilled mushrooms, you can be sure that every bite is packed with bold taste. Adding diced pineapple on top, along with shredded cabbage, red onion, and cilantro, makes for a fresh and healthy meal any day of the week.
If you’re looking for a delicious way to get your dose of veggies for the day, these gluten free wraps are for you. Loaded with nutrients from spinach, mushrooms, and green chile (full of vitamin C!), these wraps pack a flavor punch. Sauté the veggies together with plenty of olive oil, salt, and garlic, then layer in our delicious Gluten Free Original Tortilla Wraps. You can even prepare the vegetable filling ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator for several days to use as needed for making lunches and snacks throughout the week; just warm the tortilla and filling on the stovetop a bit before serving!

For a quick and easy gluten free meal that’s perfect for busy weeknights, try these Greek turkey wraps. Brown your ground turkey while you dice vegetables for the topping – cucumbers, red onion, and lettuce are great options. Layer everything in one of our Gluten Free Spinach Herb Tortilla Wraps for an added burst of flavor, then top with some tzatziki sauce; leave the sauce off for an easy dairy-free and gluten-free meal!
Onions, bell peppers, and mushrooms fill these delicious gluten-free vegan quesadillas; with our Gluten Free Original Tortilla Wraps as the base, you won’t even know that these are a healthier alternative to traditional quesadillas. Sautéing the vegetables before assembly is a key step – they’ll develop a nice caramelization and deep flavor that compliments the spices. Spread a homemade guacamole over the tortillas before browning on the stovetop to crisp and serve.
For a delightfully cheesy recipe that can easily serve a crowd, try this chicken casserole. Since it uses our naturally gluten-free Organic White Corn Tortillas, you can be sure that this dish won’t compromise on flavor or nutrition. Using refried beans along with shredded chicken (that you can buy premade or make in batches ahead!) in this layered casserole gives the dish plenty of protein, while enchilada sauce and green chiles add a bit of spicy kick. With quick assembly and about half an hour of cooking time, this gluten free chicken recipe can be on the table in under an hour.
No matter your dietary choices, these recipes bring all of the flavor without compromising your health!
