Southwestern Chicken and Rice Soup is a one-pan meal that is on the table in 30 minutes.  It features green chiles and cumin which is nicely offset by creamy coconut milk.  If you’ve read many recipes here on Life After Wheat, you will know that I’m a HUGE fan of easy meals (see here, and here) that are also easy to clean up after.

Crescent Rolls

Soft, light, and tender, these gluten free crescent rolls are easy to make and ready in less than an hour! Free from gluten, soy, oats, and dairy.

Slow Cooker Pork Carnitas

This recipe is so, so easy and versatile! Get creative with this one! You can roll it up burrito style, serve it over tortilla chips and top with cheese, green onions, olives, lettuce and salsa for nachos. Or pile it on a bed of lettuce with your favorite toppings and some cilantro ranch dressing (my favorite option for sure!)  It’s one of my favorite meals for those crazy days we all…

Tacos!

Taco Tuesdays are back with easy to make gluten free taco meat!

Tacos are my go-to easy dinner. They are quick and easy to make, and,  thanks to the Lego Movie, it is now required that we eat them every Tuesday night (thank you, Hollywood). I usually make a large batch and use the leftovers for more tacos, taco salad, or, the kids’ favorite, nachos. If you have more leftovers than you can eat, which never happens in our family of 6, this meat…
