Well, I am excited to announce that finally...NOW... Willy's salsas and cheese dip are gluten-free! The only thing off limits at my absolute favorite fast-food Mexican joint are the cookies and flour tortillas. Personally, I can easily deal with that.
The wheat-based thickener used in the chili d’arbol sauce, which is the base to many of Willy's other salsas and cheese dip, is now corn-based. Whoo hoo!! I was excited a year ago when I learned I could still enjoy Willy's, including the chips (which as we know are usually fried with gluten-containing foods at many places - but not here)...I am even more excited now!
So, with that news, my daughter and I enjoyed a warm cup of cheese dip with our chips this week on our mommy/daughter night out! Indulgent cheesy yumminess.
But remember, there is always a risk of cross-contamination anywhere where gluten-filled foods are served. For my own personal preference at Willy's, I ask if they can change their gloves when they make my food. So far, I have not had any problems.
