  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

  2. Here's my basic one, there's room for lots of variation: 2 Tomatoes, diced 1/4 of a medium onion, diced (or more or less, depending on taste) 1/4 cup diced cilantro Juice of two limes Cayenne pepper to taste Ground cumin to taste (optional) Stir together, and you're done! If you want it to be less chunky, mash it. If you like your salsa spicier, chop up a serrano (very finely) and substitute for cayenne. I usually like it just like that, but there are other variations: Use canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh (makes it a little runnier, more like store bought) Use canne
  3. True, but as has been pointed out there could be undeclared malt flavoring. Not that there should be. Regardless, the writer and lawyer in me has to know why it is not on the gluten free list. Drives me crazy not to have the specifics, and doesn't go over terribly well with the husband when he's shopping, either. I have a friend who is allergic to cilantro, some Pace salsas do not contain any, thus it was frequently around at some of our get togethers. I had read the label and wouldn't have thought anything of it. I spoke with Reser's, their customer service rep was extremely nice and a
  4. I guess I should say, the average gluten sensitive consumer. If you're just at the market shopping and reading labels there is no red flag to tell a consumer there might be an issue with gluten. It's not like cereals where you might expect cross contamination from other grains, either.
  5. Honestly, I don't buy any of these products. (I usually make my own or buy Herdez, Newmans or other lesser known or local brands) However, they are extremely common and one tends to encounter them in food service contexts as well as at friends' barbecues. Every now and then a person has to buy something from a convenience store, as well. Also, since the label doesn't actually mention any troublesome ingredients it's a risk for the average consumer out there. (Assuming there actually is an issue, which we don't know.) I got this response from Campbell's Foodservice division: I h
  6. Regarding Pace Salsas: I called Campbell's today to ask about its gluten free status. First, the customer service rep reviewed the gluten free products list which is the same one that has been floating around here, and doesn't mention Pace. Then, in response to my question about what, specifically, the salsa could contain that included gluten, he educated me on what "gluten contains." (Ur, as opposed to what contains gluten, and didn't mention wheat) I told him that since the product labels (except for some of the cheesy products) do not include any gluten containing products, it is
  7. I am hoping this thread gets some Google love, because all I am finding on Pace are these old lists that cite it as gluten free, and a thread from back in March with the gluten-free Campbells products listed (but not Pace.) I have emailed Campbells, but if anyone around these parts has the definitive word on Pace please share. It's so extremely common that it's probably not safe to eat salsa at BBQs anymore.
  8. Hi Nanchris, Could you pass on some brand names? This has got me looking around 'teh interwebs today and I can't find any specific gluten containing ingredients for other salsas, other than those contained within scary taco bell products and mass produced burritos. I'm sure Reser's isn't the only one, though.
  9. This has me questioning everything now. I'm double checking with Campbell's about Pace because of their "Natural Flavorings." Frito Lay specifically lists Tostitos brand as gluten free, (except for the individual cups of nacho cheese that you get at movie theaters) and I know my favorite "real" salsa brand, Herdez, contains just the basics: Tomatoes, onions, serrano peppers, salt, cilantro. (At home I usually make my own fresh but it's one of those things I tend to eat when I'm out.)
  10. Yup, that's right. Salsa with gluten. Not flour, or anything that might just be there through contamination, but straight up hydrolyzed wheat gluten. Why? I don't know. But here's the product: Reser's Original Baja Cafe Salsa Ingredients list: Tomatoes (Tomatoes, Tomato Juice, Salt, Calcium Chloride and Citric Acid), Water, Onion, Jalapeno Pepper (Jalapeno Peppers, Salt, Acetic Acid, Calcium Chloride), Salt, Seasoning (Salt, Hydrolyzed Wheat Gluten, Stabilizer (Guar Gum, Xanthan Gum, Sugar), Potassium Sorbate (to Protect Freshness), Cilantro, Yeast Extract, Natural Flavors, Lac
