Gluten-free Mexican food and menu ideas are in high demand for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to gluten. You can still enjoy Mexican-inspired favorites on Cinco de Mayo or any Taco Tuesday. They might not all be authentic, but they are delicious so you can celebrate effortlessly and with as much fun as possible.
Those burritos and fajitas in flour tortillas might be off the table. You can’t pop open a Corona or other Mexican beer and need to watch out for recipes that use it in the marinade or sauce. Chile Rellenos and fried ice cream are out of the picture. And wheat flour sometimes even sneaks into things like chipotles in adobo sauce and even those packets of taco seasoning. And let’s not forget about the cross-contamination risk at restaurants.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy an epic Cinco de Mayo fiesta. Just make it at home! That way you can watch out for foods that contain gluten and still enjoy the dishes you love!
