I was making my tacos with Gluten Free Pantry Tex Mex, but I discovered they stopped making it..ugh! It was my favorite too! I loved Pasta Fagoli too, they stopped making that also :( I have only looked at one packet at the store, and it contained wheat.

I was wondering what taco seasonings are gluten free and good if any?

Many of McCormick's taco seasoning packets are gluten free. McCormick has a clear gluten labeling policy, so if you don't see it --- its safe!

After draining the browned ground beef I add in some McCormick Chili Powder, Tomato Sauce and some Pepper. All three things are added till the right taste is met. When I get to the taste I want I let it simmer for a minute or two so all three ingredients can warm up (the taste will disperse more) and then add more chili powder if needed. We use to buy the packs of season taco mix but this way we know what is going in and it isn't as bad for us as the mix (cutting back on sodium etc). Still really good taste. The tomato sauce depends on how much meat we are using sometimes we use the whole 8oz can and sometimes just half (If I am remembering right -- off hand I think it was half a can for 1lb and whole can for 2lb).

Good Luck

Don't know if is this is any good, but my mom just gave me a recipe for taco mix that you can keep on hand. You could add/subtract to your liking. Haven't had a chance to try it yet, but here goes:

8 tsp dried minced onion

2 T chili powder

2 tsp cornstarch

2 tsp garlic powder

2 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp dried oregano

1/4 tsp cayenne powder

Mix it up and store in a cool dry place for up to 1 year.

Hope it's good!

I am in Canada, and I am not sure but you may be able to get this in the US. Old el Paso taco seasoning mix seems to appear gluten free and I have been having no problems with it , I have been using it since I went gluten free a few months ago. Old el Paso lists any type of gluten in their ingredient list.

Hope this helps

Their fagita mix is really good too!

I've found quite a few good ones. I usually mix or blend several kinds together.

~ Casa Fiesta Taco Salad seasoning mix.

~ Bearitos Taco seasoning.

~ Wick Fowler's Famous Taco Seasoning Mix.

~ Nueva Cocina Chipotle Taco Beef Seasoning.

~ McCormicK Taco & also Chicken Taco seasoning mix.

~ Walmarts Great Value Taco seasoning.

I don't have any at the moment, but I'm pretty sure Albertson's brand taco seasoning is gluten-free also.

best regards, lm

I use some of McCormick taco seasoning mixed in the meat with some salsa. Very tastey with gluten-free homemade tortillas.

Penzey's has a gluten free taco seasoning too. It's lower in salt than many taco seasonings are.

I make my own taco seasoning since every packet I have ever seen has whey in it and I don't do the dairy thing.

1TB minced dried onion

2 tsp Chili Powder

1 tsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Cornstarch

1 tsp cumin

1/2 to 1 tsp Cayenne Pepper

I also add about 1/2 tsp salt, which the recipe didn't call for, but I thought it really needed it.

This recipe is equivalent to a package of taco seasoning.

I add about 3/4 cups of water when I use it to season meat.

I also add it to my rice cooker when I make Spanish rice along with 1 can of diced tomatoes for 2 cups of rice. (If you double it to 4 cups rice then double the seasoning and cans of diced tomatoes.)

Also, my son came up with a good idea... we like to buy the crunchy Mission Taco shells, but they break, so we also use the soft corn tortillas.

We use a little refried beans or guac (as a glue) on the base of the soft corn tortilla, then we fold the soft tortilla onto the outside of the hard shell, that way the hard shell sticks to the soft one and nothing breaks... it's a little more filling, but it is actually really good ---

I never thought of trying that. Taco Bell's Double Decker Taco Supreme used to be one of my favs. I've seen them use refried beans as the "glue", or sometimes they use queso instead. Your son had a good idea.

The best taco seasoning is the one you make yourself. Seriously - most packets have so much sodium and so many preservatives you lose some of the flavor.

I generally use garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, curry powder, ground red pepper, chili powder...you can add anything you want! If you want it to taste more Indian than Mexican, go heavier on the curry and cumin. If you want to make it more Italian than Mexican, go heavier on the garlic and onion. And so on.

I always keep a cabinet full of spices - you just never know when that new gluten-free dish is going to need some spice! :)

    • Ken, I have the same thing. Did you ever find a reason or solution? I'm tired of shampoos and creams that only work short term. My problem cropped up after I had gone gluten-free. Thanks!
    • Hi, I recently was tested (blood) and got a positive for celiac disease. I'm 31 and have had 3 kids, and no longer have the urge to urinate. I birthed all of my children naturally, no c-sections, no surgeries. I thought perhaps there was some trauma during the birth and attributed it to that. But have come across a few things online saying that bladder problems can be related to celiac disease? I have been to a few doctors for this problem, including a very confused urologist (I asked him about my stomach bloating issue with pictures of it- before having any clue it was from celiac!) and he wanted to run some tests but I have not been back. I had multiple (or perhaps just one very bad) urinary infections which would not go away for about 6 months. The last round of harder antibiotics finally killed it off. Has anyone else had this problem? I have not met with a GI yet to ask, I'm super poor right now! hah.
    • You're right on the extremes, I'm sitting in a gluten-free food festival right now and still unsure if to eat anything which I guess means I've hit the extreme end of the scale. Seem to be noticing the recovery pattern over the course of 6 weeks or so after a gluten hit. Will be very interesting to see what the blood test readings come out like when I eventually get them done again. And thanks for the good wishes
    • Your getting plenty of proteins for once and I would drop the L-glutamine supplement what brand is it? Paleo Protein as in the brand? They were not gluten free last I checked, I got sick from it 2 years ago or so when they changed to a non dedicated facility.
    • Very interesting. However, my positive on the DGP test is on the combined assay. When separated into IGA and IGG they are within normal range. Twice the IGA was a point or two above normal range, which can be easily disregarded per University of Chicago.  Much of the research done on NCGS is showing activation of cells which are different then in celiac. Placing it still in a gluten related illness spectrum, but an entirely different kind of mode of transport, if you will, then celiac disease. Odd, because I am pretty sure I read that 1st degree relatives of celiacs have a higher prevalence of NCGS suggesting it is, in part, that they are related. But I cannot recall where I read that.  I think my specialist doc is following the right track given that all of this began at the tail end of a 6 week challenge in 2015/16 and I have an increase in IELs.  which, as I've stated before, is a very non-specific finding however. Symptoms continued On a gluten free diet for me months after.  however I was only on it for that 3 months after they found some inflammation. So maybe I didn't give it long enough.  Or like I said, maybe it's something else. We shall see!
