My oldest daughter has recently discovered that she is intolerant to gluten, which means eating anything containing the protein found in wheat and some other grains gives her great discomfort.
For that reason, I have tried to modify our favorite recipes so she can also enjoy them.
One of those favorites is an enchilada casserole, which calls for cream of chicken soup. I substituted a roux I made with Bob's Red Mill gluten free flour, and everyone like it!
