Old El Paso Family Taco Night Review and Giveaway






WINNER is #41 Kari~  She has been contacted~Thanks for entering~



My family loves nothing more than when we have taco night! There is just something about being able to make your food the way YOU want it, that brings my family running to the table! We normally have our family taco night about twice each month, and we spend the time laughing and enjoying each other so much.

My daughter is now old enough to prepare the taco meat and she will also chop up lettuce and tomatoes, and shred the cheese! She loves hearing us brag about how good everything tastes and how evenly she has diced the tomatoes. (Since hubby is a chef, she always tries to impress her dad!) Sometimes she makes tacos with ground beef, and other times she makes them with chicken...and grilled onions(my fave). With Old El Paso taco seasoning, my tween makes tacos like a pro!

Since I have been using Old El Paso for years, I was very pleased when I was offered a new spark from My Blog Spark! Old El Paso has a line up of products that includes chilies, dinner kits, dips and sides, enchilada sauce, refried beans, salsa, seasoning mixes, shells, and taco sauce. Old El Paso has a taco seasoning mix selection that includes flavors like Burrito, Cheesy Taco, Chili, Fajita, Mild and Regular Taco and even a seasoning mix with 40% less sodium, which is quite impressive and very tasty!



Thanks to My Blog Spark and Old El Paso, one Shelly's Bits and Pieces reader will win an Old El Paso  prize pack of their own!  The kit includes:
  1. A Packet of Original Old El Paso Seasoning
  2. A Cactus shaped Chip & Dip Serving Dish
  3. A set of 3 Fiesta Chili Pepper serving dishes
  4. A $10 gift card to purchase your taco fixings
To Enter:  Simply tell me what you do(or would do) to make your family taco night a success.
