Q: I am confused, when I went to buy this product at HEB the label says it "Contains a bioengineered product" but your label here does not indicate it. Why two different labels?

submitted by Ron - 4 months ago
  • A: We're sorry for the confusion. Our Old El Paso Taco seasoning mix contains bioengineered food ingredients.

Q: Are your taco mixes gluten free?

submitted by LEE D - 4 years ago
  • A: Hi Lee, thanks for the question. Our Seasoning mix is not labeled gluten free. Only products that can be verified to be gluten free will be declared as gluten free on the label. For products not labeled gluten free, we will always declare gluten containing ingredients if they are added to the product. If there are no gluten-containing ingredients listed in the product ingredient label, but the product does not make a gluten free claim, it is because we cannot fully assure that this product is gluten free. Hope this helps.

What has happened to your Old El Paso Taco Seasonsing Mix, original flavor? You have taken my favorite, always "go to" taco seasoning for nearly 50 years from the best to the worst taco seasoning I have ever used. I am so disappointed. Picked up 2 pkgs, and 2 pounds of ground beef and the taco meat I made went directly into my garbage disposal. I knew it did not look right, and did not smell right, but I made it anyway. I didn't dare present that to my family as dinner. The taste was horrible. No good flavor or seasoning spices were detected. Just a pasty,gummy, bad smelling, bad tasting waste of ground beef. I really feel you will come to regret the change you've made.

Why Did You Change the Mild Taco Seasoning?

Weekly Taco Man - 20 days ago

What in the world did you do to the Mild Taco Mix? It is white rather than orange/red and has minimal taco flavor. It cooks up thick and doesn't smell as good as it used to smell. I can't smell tacos in the kitchen after cooking now and before, I could smell taco seasoning all in the house.

Different color , and taste. BAD!!

Mikeeee - 1 month ago

Color, and flavor has changed. Not good!! I have used the mild taco seasoning for a long time. Grabbed 4 packets like usual. It usually has a brownish, orange tint to it. Opened up the first package, and it was white. Thought it was outdated, checked the date, and it was not. Thought maybe it was just that one packet. Opened up the next 3 packets, all the same. Tasted way different. I used to love when you had a little brownish taco juice at the bottom of the pan. Really tasty. This makes me sad, because we cook a lot of tacos. I WILL NOT BUY THIS AGIAN UNITL IT GETS FIXED BACK TO HOW IT WAS BEFORE!!! Now I have to go try a different seasoning, and find one I like. I have read a lot of reviews about this. Please get this fixed, I want to use your seasoning, but I will not if it doesn't change. Thank you for your time.

What Changed??

yarington - 1 month ago

What happened to your product?? I just made a double batch as I always do and there is no flavor! It’s like there is a thickening agent but no spices! I actually pulled the taco seasoning packets out of the garbage to make sure I didn’t pull gravy mix or something. Also checked the expiration date, it’s fine, 2025! Is this an error in the recipe or did you change the recipe?

When it comes to taco shells. Old El Paso is the way to go. You can stuff two pounds of meat into ten stand and stuff taco shells and still have room for all the fixings. I really appreciate that. 😳👍

Less flavor for more money

Balto - 8 months ago

I'm used to buying the store brand for everything but this time I decided to treat myself to an American staple. The flavor was so non-existent that I can't help but wonder if the "mild" version is just food coloring to make beef look more appealing as taco meat.

Beware: Contains Bioengineered Ingredients

1 out of 5 stars
Icky - 9 months ago
originally posted on OldElPaso.com
Read the labels. This seasoning contains bioengineered ingredients, in other words fake food. I have been a lifetime consumer of Old El Paso products, It has been a staple in my household for more than half a century since I was just a kid. Just today I realized that it has bio engineered ingredients and so it went in the trash. I have also posted on social media about this poison in your product. Please, our country is battling sickness and death due to fake everything. I’m asking you to consider going back to real products and real food. Until then my family and I will not be using your products, even if that means forever. As a lifetime former consumer of yours, I thought it was fair that you should know. Let’s get real. Susan
1 reply from Old El Paso team - 8 months ago
Thanks for reaching out with your concerns! Today, if an American food or beverage product lists corn, soy, canola, cottonseed or beet sugar as an ingredient and the product is not organic, it likely contains genetically modified/bioengineered ingredients. Rest assured, safety is our number one priority. We find broad global consensus among food and safety regulatory bodies that approved genetically modified/bioengineered ingredients are safe. We hope this information is helpful to you.

They reduced the contents from 6 servings to 5 and slapped gluten free on the packaging, they also increased the suggested water amount from 2/3 cup to 3/4. You're better off to just buy bulk seasoning now
