Embracing a Healthy Family: Our Twist on Old El Paso Tacos and Cool Gift Pack Giveaway - 9/14 - US - $54 Value

Our Twist on Old El Paso Tacos and Cool Gift Pack Giveaway - 9/14 - US - $54 Value


We are a Mexican food family and tacos are the number one item along with nachos.  Being we live in El Paso, what better product to use then Old El Paso?  It truly is the brand I turn to for nearly all my Mexican food ingredients.  While living in El Paso, I have picked up some variations on how I used to make tacos and nachos and loved having the opportunity to try them out as my Old El Paso gift pack arrived.  As you can see, it's a really cool prize pack that really motivated me to try it out that night as I had everything on hand especially since the gift pack included everything except cheese, meat and salsa.



Our twist on tacos is deep frying them as it adds a nice crunch.  It's not the same as corn shell hardness but a light flaky crispiness that tastes amazing.  It's now the preferred way to fix tacos and I tried it out with our Old El Paso Taco prize pack.  It's easy and it's just like making a taco except after filling it with the taco meat post cooking it per the taco seasoning package mix and adding refried beans to the meat mixture, I add a little cheese, fold over and secure with a tooth pick.  Then I fry it for just a minute or so and then I let it drain on some paper towels.  It's easy and quick and the kids love it!

My nachos are similar as I just used the flour shell tortilla's from Old El Paso and cut in fourths with a pizza cutter to get clean lines.  I then fry them for about one minute on each side, drain, let cool and then add a layer of beans and cheddar cheese and bake in the oven at 350 for about five minutes. They turn out crispy and perfect!
