Gluten-Free, No Preservatives Seasonings and Soups by Nueva Cocina

I've never been a prepackaged spice kind of cook. I'd rather mix my own adding a teaspoon of this and a teaspoon of that, plus many packaged seasonings contain MSG. Not so with Nueva Cocina:
Nueva Cocina Chipotle Taco Seasoning:

Ingredients
Dehydrated Onion, Freeze Dried Raisins, Salt, Sugar, Dehydrated Red Bell Pepper, Dehydrated Green Bell Peppers, Dehydrated Garlic, Chipotle Pepper Powder, Spices, Dehydrated Orange Peel, Garlic Powder, Apple Cider Vinegar Powder, (Maltodextrin, Modified Food Starch, Vinegar Solids).

This seasoning is designed to be used with beef, but it could just as easily flavor tofu, tempeh, or beans. Of course, it would be better if the spices were organically grown.

Nueva Cocina also makes instant soup mixes. We were sent:
Nueva Cocina Sweet Corn Soup with Green Chiles:

Ingredients
Dried Sweet Corn and Corn Powder [Corn, Maltodextrin, Corn Starch, Soy Lecithin}, Whey, Dehydrated Onion, Corn Starch, Yellow Corn Flour, Dextrose, Nonfat Milk, Salt, Sweet Cream Solids, Sunflower Oil, Sugar, Milk, Dehydrated Butter (Cream, Nonfat Milk, Salt, Annatto), Dehydrated Garlic, Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Dehydrated Green Bell Pepper, Natural Flavor, Spice, Dehydrated Jalapeno Pepper, Annatto.

This product does not claim to be MSG-free, as autolyzed yeast extract is hidden MSG.

Just like with seasoning mixes, I'd prefer to make soup from scratch. I don't event take dehydrated food backpacking.

Both of these products are made in Miami, Florida
