Old El Paso Review and Giveaway

I received a kit from MyBlogSpark with Old El Paso taco seasoning in it for free to try out and review. I made the tacos pictured here with it. Old El Paso taco seasoning comes in a packet to use if you want to quickly make a Mexican meal and either don't have all the right taco seasoning mix of herbs and spices at home or don't want to mess with searching for them in your cabinet. Sometimes you just want to make a quick and fairly simple meal for your family. Old El Paso taco seasoning is great for just whipping out a yummy Mexican dish. However; it has Monosodium glutamate (MSG) in it which for some people like my mother isn't a good thing because of being allergic. I really don't think that the MSG is a necessary ingredient. Although the tacos I made with the seasoning turned out really yummy and were quicker to make I think that I will be making them again with my own taco seasoning blend from home next time. While the seasoning blend from Old El Paso isn't as healthy as I'd like I have tried other Old El Paso products like their salsas and taco shells and I love them!!

I did have a lot of fun with my "family taco night" and I will definitely be doing it again really soon. This was my very first time making taco shells myself with just regular corn tortillas. I think they turned out very well :) I just learned how to do it myself on YouTube! Isn't the Internet wonderful!

If your family already loves tacos, why not put "family taco night" on the calendar at least once a month? With a variety of seasonings and other complementary products, Old El Paso offers everything you need for fun nights with the family. Their 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.

For a fun twist on taco night, be sure to try one of the delicious recipes below.

* Easy Fish Tacos - Old El Paso taco shells, seasoning mix and taco sauce and battered fish fillets make easy fish tacos.

* Tarantula Tacos - These spook-tacular tacos are great for a Halloween party!

Here are more recipes.
