Old El Paso Prize Pack Giveaway***CLOSED

When I don't have a lot of time to cook dinner, I usually rely on the typical (and quick) standbys like tacos.  Normally, I already have all of the ingredients in my pantry and fridge. All I have to do is heat up the taco shells and cook the meat which only takes a few minutes. Not to mention this is a cheap meal to make.

We always do "make your own" tacos.  Out go all the fixings and everyone fixes their own.  Less work for mom.

My husband's family has a family tradition of having tacos whenever they get together-including at Christmas (or around Christmas) when everyone is in town.  Sometimes you can't mess with family traditions.  So saying tacos have a special place in my family's heart is putting it mildly.


With family dinners being a hot topic lately in the media, what about a family taco night?   Old El Paso has even created El Tacodor.  With funny activities like saying everyone's name backwards and acting out animals without making any noise, you'll be laughing around the table in no time.

Old El Paso has a whole line of everything you would need from refried beans (which I wouldn't touch but my husband loves), chilies, dinner kits, taco shells, taco sauces from mild to spicy, seasoning mix, salsa, and more.

Looking for some unique taco recipes?   Here are two to try: Double-Layer Tacos and Chicken Ranch Tacos.


TPMG readers can also get a Old El Paso printable coupon for $.60 off on any two Old El Paso products.  There is another Old El Paso printable coupon for $.60 off any two Old El Paso products on the Old El Paso website.

Enter to win an Old El Paso family taco night Prize Pack

I like that my son would eat this well. Mostly because I would tell him that Diego loves family taco night. Plus - he would really go for the cute dishes!

I like the versatility to tacos. Like pizza, with a taco there are hundreds of variations.You can make a vegetarian, chicken, ground beef, fish, or even steak taco. You can top with salsas(sweet or savory), sourcream or a variety of dressing( cilantro lime is great on fish, you could do a ranch on a chicken bacon) you can add cheeses like cheddar or monterey jack, you can garnish with stuff like olives or jalepenos. You can stuff with veggies/fruits like corn, lettuce, cabbage or avocado. The sky is literally the limit.
