And it's not just Mexican, I'm finding it in most of the rice mixes (there are some marked GF), corn bread, you name it!

Always read labels to make sure that it does not happen. If I am in a hurry then I will miss it and then have to take the product back.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Thanks for the good reminder. I try to always read labels before I buy. The hard part is usually in restaurants. We eat at the Austin Grill for Mexican and they have a GF menu now.

Thank you for this posting. Living in TX mexican and TexMex is everywhere and it is deelicious too. Being GF I have to check every label.

The workers at Costco just give me the weirdest looks sometimes when I have to turn their food down because I don't know what's in it. Sometimes I ask to look at labels other times I just pass by.

Love it when they have a GF sample of something but they are serving it on a cracker!!!

We just must have a good sense of humor!

I appreciate you sharing this with us.

I don't eat much mexican, but I have been more vigilant with all my sauces/dressings since these discussions.

I'm really trying to be vigilant about those little sources of gluten, but I've had a few surprises lately.
Some red or green chili sauces have wheat in them, and others do not. I don't know if any of these are national, but check labels. The Cervantes sauces contain wheat flour but the 505 brand has rice flour.
At Costco, they were handing out samples of tamales. Now, there's a GF food, right? Wrong! Same with enchiladas sometimes.
Also, though not Mexican, check risotto for wheat. None of these things need wheat, but it's cheap! And, it's not just the store brands, either.
