Super Bowl Sunday is just a week away! Whether you’ll be rooting for the Ravens or the 49ers, you’ll need a little something tasty to keep your energy up as you and your friends shout at the screen. Don’t worry—we’ve got you covered with a few gluten-free Super Bowl snacks and recipes.

Gluten-Free Nachos


  • Gluten-free tortilla chips (Frito Lay’s list of gluten-free products, which was updated on January 13, 2013, will give you a few options, or make your own!)
  • 4 cups gluten-free cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 can gluten-free black beans, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup green onion, sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, minced
  • 1 cup gluten-free sour cream
  • 1 cup gluten-free guacamole
  • 1 small can of black olives, sliced
  • 1-2 cups of chicken, pre-cooked and shredded
  • 1/2 cup jalapeno pepper, sliced (optional)


Preheat oven to 350° F. Spread the chips out in a pan, then cover them with shredded chicken, black beans, black olives, green onion, jalapeno pepper, and cheese. Bake until the cheese has melted. Remove from oven and top with sour cream and guacamole. Sprinkle cilantro on top.

Feeling feverish? According to the CDC, the 2012-2013 flu season got off to an early start this year, and since it typically peaks in January or February, many of you may already be feeling its aches and pains. Before you reach for that box of Theraflu, make sure that it’s gluten-free (and good thing you checked, because it isn’t!) Some medications are contaminated with gluten when they’re dusted with flour before they’re packaged, or they’re inactive ingredients are derived from starch sources.

We did some research and compiled a few gluten-free cold and flu remedies below. Please use our list as a helpful guide as you search for gluten-free remedies, but as always, please consult with your doctor or pharmacist about whether or not a medication is gluten free.
