Combine quinoa, eggs, tomato paste, salt, garlic powder, paprika, and black pepper in a bowl.  Add breadcrumbs and stir in well. Let mixture sit for a couple of minutes so that the breadcrumbs can absorb the moisture.  Scoop 1 heaping TBSP of quinoa mixture, and with dampened hands, make quinoa balls by placing one cube of mozzarella into the middle of the ball and forming a smooth ball around the mozzarella. Repeat to form about 30 quinoa bites. Place quinoa bites onto the lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.

In the meantime, make the sauce.  Combine the Kickin' Pineapple BBQ Sauce and butter in a small saucepan and cook on medium heat (or place in a microwave-safe bowl for 2 minutes on high).

Gluten-Free Mini Blazin' Corn Dogs

Blazin' Pepper Relish



  • 2 tsp  BS Grillin' Co. Blazin' Pepper Relish

  • ½ cup Masa Harina corn flour

  • ¾ cup gluten-free Flour 

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • ¾ tsp Kosher salt

  • ¼ cup fine granulated sugar 

  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

  • 3/4 cup Buttermilk

  • 10 hot dogs, halved 

  • Vegetable oil (enough to fill frying vessel 2 inches deep)

  • Cornstarch (for dusting)

  • Skewers

  • Lollipop sticks from the craft store 



Set oven to Broil. Pour frying oil into a pot at a depth of 2 inches. Bring oil to 375 degrees.

(While the oil heats, the batter can be prepared.)

In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients: corn flour, flour, baking powder, salt, sugar. Mix until fully combined.

Add egg, Blazin' Pepper Relish, and ½ cup of buttermilk to the dry mixture. Stir by hand to combine. The batter should resemble pancake batter.  Add more of the remaining buttermilk if consistency is too thick or if batter thickens after sitting.

Dab any excess moisture from the hot dogs with a paper towel and lightly dust with cornstarch.  Insert a skewer into each hot dog piece and roll it in the batter to cover all sides. 

Place the hot dog into the heated oil, remove the skewer, and allow to cook until golden brown about 1 ½-2 minutes.

Remove with a heat-proof slotted spoon and place on a cooling rack that has been placed over a baking sheet or paper towels.

Repeat until all the hot dog pieces are cooked. 

Allow them to cool until you can handle the corn dogs safely. Insert lollipop sticks into the mini corn dogs.

Serve with sauces and eat immediately.


Gluten-Free Grilled Fish Tacos

Kickin' Pineapple BBQ Sauce



Grilled Fish:

  • 1/4 cup of BS Grillin's Kickin' Pineapple BBQ Sauce

  • 1 lb tilapia fillets

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Spicy Coleslaw:

  • 12 oz shredded coleslaw mix

  • 1/4 cup chopped onion greens

  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

  • 1/2 to 1 jalapeno pepper, seeds removed, finely diced

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • salt & pepper to taste

Avocado Dressing:

  • 2 small ripe avocados

  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • pinch cayenne pepper


  • 12 small gluten free corn tortillas




For the Fish:

Whisk together the Kickin' Pineapple BBQ sauce, olive oil, and lime juice. Place the fish fillets into a large resealable bag, and pour the marinade over top. Seal, and turn until all the fish is coated with the marinade. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. Do not marinade any longer, or the acid will begin to "cook" your fish.

Now is the time to prepare the Spicy Coleslaw and Avocado Dressing.

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Grease the grate, and place the fish on. Grill the fish for about 2-3 minutes per side, or until it easily flakes with a fork.

For the Spicy Coleslaw:

Add the onion greens, cilantro, and jalapeno pepper to the coleslaw mix. Stir to combine. In a separate bowl, whisk together the lime juice, olive oil, honey, salt and pepper. Pour over the cabbage mixture, and stir until it is evenly coated.

For the Avocado Dressing:

Place all the ingredients into a food processor, or use an immersion blender and a tall narrow bowl. Process the mixture until it is completely smooth.

Heat the corn tortillas. I like to use a hot skillet with a tiny amount of oil in it, this only takes about 30 seconds per side. Add some Spicy Coleslaw, Grilled Fish, and Avocado Dressing to each corn tortilla.
