Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce
0

9 posts in this topic

A friend wants to make dinner and asked if Old El Paso Enchilada sauce is safe. Neither of us have the ingredients in front of us and we can't find it online. I know they are a company who won't hide the ingredients...but I don't have the ingredients to let her know if it is safe or not.

If anyone could let me know if its safe or not, I'd be grateful

I understand that it is NOT gluten free. I used to use it all the time and quit. I use a package now I think it is by McCormick and I think it is really good.

I went to www.generalmills.com and clicked on Old El Paso medium enchilada sauce and it showed a side label which stated as an ingredient -- wheat gluten-- and on the allergy part it listed wheat and soy. I hope this helps some.

thanks both to jenny and karen :).

The link that jenny provided had the labels to the mild, medium, and hot versions of the sauce that we would use...and they all contain wheat gluten. Delightful!

I don't know if this helps but here's a recipe for enchilada sauce. It's pretty basic stuff when you take out all the scary ingredients and the wheat gluten. Maybe you could make it ahead of time for your friend to use in the rest of her recipe if she can't find a safe, pre-made version?

Do not despair. The Old El Paso taco sauce is very good and contains no wheat or gluten and I called them to make sure. Now perhaps that is only in Canada. I use it on my enchiladas.

once I found out how easy it is to make I make it and freeze it. It's really very simple. And If I make mexican beef (chuck roast + Peppers + spices in a slow cooker), I make that first and use the juices as the beef broth in the enchilada sauce. YUM! Might be time for another batch....
