dinner recipes - minimal cooler and gluten free

Looking for a few new recipes for a trip next week. Going light weight so no or minimal cooler items. Also minimal to no gluten (not a severe allergy issue so some gluten is ok). Also something that doesn't require fire/charcoal.

Needs to feed 9 folks. Any suggestions?

I bought the no-coolers book last year and frankly am not too impressed.

Not gluten free, but tortilla pizzas have always been a hit when I take college kids on trips. Basically an Italian quesadilla - a flour tortilla with stuffings put on 1/2 of the surface (don't overfill). Spread out bottled pizza sauce, mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, canned mushrooms, canned olives - whatever you want on a pizza - (and none of these ingredients need refrigeration). Just fold in half and cook in skillet until cheese melts.

The tortilla pizza option is even better if you sub naan for tortillas (then just melt it open faced).

And if you need GF just use corn or rice, though I'll admit these options lack the structural integrity of a nice flour tortilla. The Naan option sounds great.

The beauty of the folded tortilla is that the"fillings" are heated from both sides. If you do an open face, you'd better cook it slow and have a lid to put heat on the top. Otherwise, you will probably burn the bottom w/o fully melting the top.

gnocchi is ready in boiling water in two minutes and is very filling, but not gluten free. You can get 3 servings per pkg with an average appetite, or two for the more hungry. Your favorite can/jar sauce with some pepperoni, mushrooms, and parmesan makes for a refrigeration free meal that can be ready in ten minutes.

Rice with canned chicken, canned green chiles, and the appropriate sauce, be it salsa verde, enchilada, whatever, is another quick and easy one pot meal. Plenty of variations there. Cook the rice in chicken stock until done, then add the rest. No refrigeration necessary here either.

I realize you're from Boulder, but where in the world can most folks find naan? I'm interested since I enjoy it at Little Nepal.
