Old El Paso “Family Taco Night” Review and Giveaway

So due to some travel, I have spent some time away from my home and haven't been able to do an entry.  Well now that we are back at home I am thrilled to share with you my next giveaway.  My Blog Spark had given me my inspiration for tonight's dinner.  There is one dinner that the whole family enjoys.   Taco night!  Well tonight was our night and again it was a hit.  The best part about Old El Paso products is they have a little something for everything.  At my house, we can never agree on what type of shells for the tacos.  Some want hard shell, others like soft tacos.  Old El Paso actually has a box of six hard shells and six soft.  It ends up perfect for my children who never agree on anything. 

Before I discovered these products from Old El Paso, I would have to purchase a box of hard shells and a box of tortillas.  For some reason I would never use the leftover shells in time and they would go bad. I was throwing away money and I hate wasting anything.  Now I don't have to.  I also used their taco seasoning for my entree this evening and everyone thought my taco meat was delicious.  

For a fun twist on Taco Night, be sure to try one of the delicious recipes below.
  • Double Layer Tacos
    • Old El Paso Favorite Recipe! Layered taco shells and tortillas create the "double" in beef- and bean-stuffed tacos.
  • Chicken Ranch Tacos
    • Need a new idea for a 30-minute dinner? Here's a twist on ta cos using precooked chicken.

My Blog Spark has provided me with an Old El Paso “Family Taco Night” prize pack which includes a packet of original 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 to purchase my taco fixings.  So basically they bought my family dinner and they can do the same for you.  My Blog Spark and Old El Paso has provided me with a "Family Taco Night' prize pack to give away to one of my readers.  

They have also provided me with a coupon link that you can print to purchase your own taco goodies. You visit http://www.myblogspark.com/uc/main/b069/to download a printable coupon for $0.60 off any two Old El Paso products today!
