Dinners at our house during the week have to be quick and easy to prepare, and something that two toddlers will like. Mexican food has become a staple for us lately. Most meals are simple to prepare, and the kids always gobble them up! We have used many products from Old El Paso for our Taco/Burrito/Enchilada dinners. Old El Paso has a great idea for "Family Taco Night", where you set aside at least one night a month to bring fun to your dinner table and spice things up a bit!
Old El Paso offers a variety of seasonings, sides, sauces, and meal kits as simple solutions for a night of catching up with the family over a delicious taco dinner. To satisfy your Mexican style cravings, the Old El Paso line up of products includes chilies, dinner kits, dips and sides, enchilada sauce, refried beans, seasoning mixes, shells, taco sauce and salsa. The Old El Paso taco seasoning mix selection includes flavors like Burrito, Cheesy Taco, Chili, Fajita, Taco, Mild Taco and even a seasoning with 40% less sodium.
We received a "Family Taco Night" prize pack to review. It included a packet of original Old El Paso Taco Seasoning, a Cactus Chip & Dip Serving dish, a set of 3 Fiesta Chili Pepper serving dishes and a $10 gift card to purchase our taco fixings.
Our Taco Night dinners were so easy to prepare! We browned the ground beef and added the seasonings. Then we made up the tacos with the seasoned meat, lettuce, cheese, tomatoes and sour cream. We used soft taco shells because they are easier for the kids to eat.
As always, the whole family enjoyed the tacos! The Old El Paso Taco Seasoning Mix is just the right combination of seasonings, without being too spicy for the kids to enjoy. They liked their tacos so much, I even had to share my second taco with them!
Family Taco Night is a great idea! And we will definitely be doing this again soon. For a fun twist on Family Taco Night, check out all of the different Old El Paso recipes, such as Double Layer Tacos and Chicken Ranch Tacos.
