Old El Paso – Make it a Mexican Night!

Last month, I had an amazing opportunity to visit Mexico.  I love Mexico.  I studied there 10 years ago and there’s a huge place in my heart for that country.  There’s no way I’d ever be able to replicate the food, but thanks to Old El Paso, I can get a small taste of some Mexican cuisine to bring back good memories.

I had the chance to test out some of their brand new on the shelf products.

The first product is the new Extra Mild, Super Tasty Hard Taco Dinner Kit! I’m not really a fan of hard tacos, I like soft tacos the best.  But what I did enjoy was the sauce.  Being pregnant, I have to really be careful what I eat, and spices are pretty much a “no no”.  The sauce was light and not spicy.  I was also surprised to see it was more creamy than other sauces.  I wasn’t able to get Princess Picky Eater to have any tacos, but she really enjoyed the shredded cheese.

We also tried the The new Hot & Spicy Fajita Dinner Kit!  I LOVE fajitas!!! And I especially love saying the word fajita with a “j”, it sounds so funny.  These were the hot and spicy flavour and yup, true to their name they sure were hot and spicy.  I used a lot more water than the recipe called for to try to water it down, and didn’t even use the salsa intended for the kit.  I actually used other mild salsa and still found it to be spicy.  In my non pregnant days, this would be fine, but right now my heart burn is like fire.  While the fajitas tasted really yummy going down, later in the evening, it was like there was a Fiesta in my esophagus.

  1. I was lucky enough to get one of the FPC they were offering on their Facebook page. Can’t wait to try out the mild, as I usually get heartburn with the regular kits!

  2. I have been to Mexico twice. Once on a missions trip to Ensenada and then just this past winter to Cancun area with my husband. Love it!

  3. I have never been to mexico but my parents have…and they rave about it all the time which makes me so jealous! I’m planning to go next year though! Mazatlan!

  4. I have been to Mexico many times and love it. I have never been to a resort there, I usually stay in smaller hotels and explore.

  5. Nope! I’m from Canada and I haven’t had the chance to travel much. The only place I’ve been out of the country was a quick over the border trip to some place in New York lol

  6. I love Mexican and so I will definitely try their new products. It’s hard to find something the whole family eats but this is an easy meal for me that all will eat without issues.
