    Doesn’t the Taco seasoning have gluten in it? I was going to use some in a recipe the other day, and saw wheat as one of the ingredients?

    I was just going to ask the same question…I know that some of McCormick’s spices were GF but I didn’t think the mixed/multi seasonings were…including the taco seasoning?? That’s great if it is!!! That would make my life so much easier!

    Many seasoning mixes do contain wheat. McCormick taco seasoning does not. You can check the ingredients at their web site. I am currently using a large bulk size container, but I have also used the packets. I always check the ingredients when I purchase it in case anything has changed.

    Doing all dairy free now, so gonna miss sour cream. I got Daiya cheese, but it just isn't as good.
