Here's a new gluten-free product I picked up at my local supermarket (Gristede in NYC) and it's so useful I think it's worth keeping an eye out for them elsewhere in the country.
I love the taco shells that come in boxes in the store, but since i've never really mastered the use of the taco shell filled with chili to point where I don't require a vegetarian version of the lobster bib, this was quite a find for me.
These are not, as you can see, folded in half. Which, if you were planning on eating your chili with a fork, as I do, is no great loss. And you still have that wonderful taste of corn and chili, which, as far as I'm concerned, is one of those unbeatables that we gluten free vegetarians can easily enjoy with the rest of the world with no adjustments or excuses. So, there!

The chili shown, by the way, is actually the Texas Bean Bake from Mixes from the Heartland. More on that later. Oh, and the broccoli? I always serve chili over broccoli. Or over mushrooms. It's the daytime WeightWatcher in me. At night the vampire carboholic takes over, but, hey, who's perfect, anyway?
