Old El Paso Dinner Kit, Stand and Stuff Tacos with all the fixings.  Remember to check the cheese label to make sure there is no gluten added, otherwise, you are good to go with tomatoes, lettuce, cheese and sour cream. 


Today's Recipe
Brownies - From Wheat Free Recipes and Menus by Carol Fenster MD.
                      1 cup gluten-free flour blend (recipe link below)
                        2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa (not Dutch)
                        1/2 teaspoon baking powder
                        1/2 teaspoon salt
                        1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
                        1/3 cup butter or margarine (melted)
                        1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
                        1/2 cup granulated sugar
                        1 large egg
                        2 teaspoons vanilla extract
                     1/3 cup hot water or brewed coffee
                        1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 8-inch square nonstick pan. Stir together gluten free flour blend, cocoa, baking powder, salt, and xanthan gum. Set aside.

In large mixing bowl, beat butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well combined. With mixer on low speed, add dry ingredients and hot water or coffee.  Mix until just blended. Mixture will be somewhat thick. Stir in walnuts, if using. Spread batter in prepared pan with wet spatula.
  Bake for 20 minutes.

Note:  I use different flour blends, depending on what I have.  Sometimes I use the Hodgson Mill baking mix and sometimes gluten free Bisquick.  I've even used a gluten free pancake mix with good results.  These brownies are wonderful.  I do recommend using the coffee if you have it, because it results in a much richer flavor.
