With New Meal Solutions From Old El Paso, You Can Heat it Up or Keep it Mild-Giveaway #LMDConnector

When it comes to Mexican food, there’s one question that always needs to be asked before the cooking begins…hot or mild? While some people can take the heat, others are more likely to get out of the kitchen if dinner has too much spice. So how can a mom make a Mexican meal that the whole family will love? With new products from Old El Paso!

  • Hot & Spicy Fajita Dinner Kit: Perfect food to spice up your get-togethers with friends and it’s also ready in 20 minutes. Each kit includes 10 soft tortillas, 1 spicy fajita sauce and 1spicy fajita seasoning mix. Hot!
  • Mild Taco Seasoning: This dry seasoning mix is specially formulated to give you the goodness of Old El Paso’s signature Mexican flavour without the heat. Your kids will LOVE it!

While my husband likes a little spice in his life, my boys and I tend to prefer milder flavours, so I decided to cook up the Extra Mild, Super Tasty Hard Taco Dinner Kit for our dinner. I loved that the kit came with a mix-in seasoning for sour cream and I also appreciated the fact that even though the tomato sauce I added to the meat was very mild, it still had the great scent and flavour of a true Mexican meal.

Making tacos takes intense concentration!

So that the meal would suit the entire family, I served the meal with some spicier sides including Old El Paso Medium Salsa and Pickled Sliced Jalapeno Peppers. That way, the boys could dig into their simple and mild tacos while my husband could pile his high with meat, cheese, salsa, peppers and veggies for a spicy taste sensation. We all had a great time at our Old El Paso fiesta and I can’t wait until the boys are at school this year so that I can whip up the Hot & Spicy Fajita Dinner Kit for lunch one day. Like my husband, I don’t mind a bit of spice and I absolutely love a good chicken fajita!
