Product Review: Cali Spicy Fiesta Gourmet Seasoning Mix- Medium Spice- gluten free/ dairy free/ yeast free/ vegan/ no MSG/ organic ingredients when available

Posted on | May 28, 2008 | 3 Comments

( I can’t believe this is my 200th post!)

Yum! Cali did it again- another tasty seasoning mix that is free from gluten! I am always wary of the seasoning packets at the grocery store that are supposed to be gluten free. I worry that the spices may not be pure or the formulation may have changed to contain new gluten ingredients. One thing I really like about the Cali seasoning mixes is that I can cook conveniently and eat with peace of mind that they won’t make me sick.

I used this versatile one ounce Spicy fiesta gluten free seasoning mix as a yummy variation on an old favorite- crunchy beef gluten free tacos.

I added the seasoning mix to one pound of cooked ground beef for a quick and easy Tex Mex dish. I found this mix to contain just the right amount of heat – a bit of a kick without burning your mouth. I loved the layered flavors of the chili pepper, garlic, leek and black pepper, supported by a touch of carrot, green pepper, cumin, cayenne and sea salt.

The packaging also provides a recipe for vegetarian tacos and use for this seasoning on veggies, as a marinade, chip and veggie dip, with pasta and beans, and on burgers. Let your imagination go wild- you can use this mix on just about anything!

PROS: great, high quality flavor, versatile, individual packets for ease of use

CONS: if you like really spicy foods, this may not be for you

Rating: 5 stars

    Thanks for the link! I’ve never heard of Cali’s seasonings, so I’ll have to check that out.
