I love trying new things and I also love making my family try new things especially when it comes to food. They always enjoy the usual, what they are used to but mom likes to throw some changes into the mix once in a while. There is a whole big world full of delicious food waiting for their taste buds.  

One thing when it comes to meals in our house is time and taste. It should be simple enough and quick enough to make on a week night plus it should be enjoyable for everyone. Tacos are a no fail in our family and I was happy to try out the new Old El Paso Restaurante kits with my family!

Old El Paso brings fun, vibrant, modern Mexican food to Canadian families with new Old El Paso Restaurante. Cooking up restaurant-style, taco dinners at home can make you feel like a real #MexicanChef! 

Old El Paso Restaurante kits come with everything you need to season up your favourite meat and toppings for a one of a kind, flavourful dinner your whole family will enjoy. Very simple to put together following the directions on the box. We didn't have a chance to get any avacado to really make the steak tacos special but using vegetables we had on hand sure worked wonders and gave it our own unique touch. That's the beauty of taco kits, use what you have on hand paired with your cooking imagination. 

Old El Paso Restaurante has three different flavours available in stores that are sure to impress. Baja Fish for those sea food lovers, Steak Carne Asada for the meat lovers and Chicken Tinga for those who crave poultry. These three authentic Mexican flavours are easy to make and are packed with taste so you can rest assured that your family will be satisfied.

  1. So my #mexicanchef picture was using Old El Paso, but Not Old ElPaso Restaurante. Is that bad? I did enter my picture/tweet but if it's not ok please disregard.

    1. Hi Nicol! This question keeps coming up and yes, you can post a picture of whatever your #MexicanChef creation is - inspired by Old El Paso Restaurante since the prize IS for taco kits for a reader to try! :) I have reworded the giveaway to make it easier. Sorry for the confusion! :)

    2. Thanks. I'd love to win, but wanted to make sure I was following the rules.
      Old El Paso kits are the best for a hurried night dinner.
