Celiac Disease Awareness Month is May every year, which means every year we celebrate Cinco de Mayo at the same time we celebrate celiac disease. It’s actually pretty easy, because traditional food served at Cinco de Mayo events are typically naturally gluten-free, like salsa, guacamole, hard tacos, tortilla chips, and more. But too often to manufacturers take something naturally gluten free and add in modifiers that make it unsafe for celiacs. Today for #CDAM16, we’re featuring Nature Path’s Que Pasa line – a gluten-free corn tortilla chip brand that happens to also be delicious.
Their line of gluten-free tortilla chips includes a blue corn, yellow corn, and even a red corn (made from red beet coloring) line. Look for a thin and crispy “cantina” inspired variety this summer too! These are all certified gluten-free. You can find them in paper packing. There are also other chips available in smaller packaging, including ancient grain, purple corn, and black bean. These are my preferred non-flavored tortilla chip on market! I find mine at Sprouts. But it’s not just chips either – they also make a great line of salsas!
Nature’s Path and Que Pasa wanted to share a recipe with you for Celiac Awareness Month – to continue the gluten-free fun for Cinco De Mayo and beyond! Enjoy this meaty meatless taco salad and their special dressing!
