Old El Paso family taco night Review and Giveaway















Over the course of the last several months, I have tried to make dinner a little more frequently and a little more healthy.

I wondered why I did this for Noah, but not for Jonathan and I.

I quickly learned how time consuming cooking can be, and although I have not completely eliminated making the bigger more complicated meals, I try to have a couple of more simple ideas for those crazy nights - such as Taco Night and Spaghetti night.  What I love, is that Noah is now old enough to eat both!

Now that school is back in session, reward your family for their hard work and bring the dinner your family loves to the table with a fiesta - Old El Paso style!

With a variety of seasonings and other complementary products, Old El Paso offers everything you need for fun nights with the family.

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.

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 quick work out of Mexican fare.
  • Tarantula Tacos
    • Having a Halloween party? Gather the kids and make spook-tacular tacos.
And to keep your family laughing at the dinner table, have some fun with El Tacodor™, the world’s only family taco night Game. With El Tacodor, your family can share a special night at home by challenging one another to quick fire trivia, wordplay and pantomime. Visit www.ElTacodor.com today to download instructions, a score card, and a challenge sheet for even more fun on family taco night!

Visit 
Old El Paso for news and great tips, recipes and more. Take a minute to share family fiesta photos and videos from family taco nights on the El Tacodor Family Spotlight!

Also, make sure to visit 
http://www.myblogspark.com/uc/main/b069/to download a printable coupon for $0.60 off any two Old El Paso products today!

Old El Paso sent me an amazing family taco night prize pack through 
MyBlogSpark which included a packet of 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 that I used to purchase our taco fixings, including organic ground beef, salsa and sour cream!  A must in our family!




Noah had never eaten tacos before (of course we gave him soft tacos) and he absolutely LOVED them!  It took him a couple of tries before I had to break it apart from him, but he delved after the meat that was seasoned with the Old El Paso seasonings!  Yeah!  One more easy dinner to cook for him!






Old El Paso and MyBlogSpark have offered a great family taco night prize pack to one lucky Going Green with Noah winner!!!!

We make it special by offering toppings to suit every taste. To us, that means buying avocado when it is out of season, or wild caught salmon.

I follow your blog.
