One of our favorite meals around my home is tacos and we have them at least twice a month if not more. The oldest loves tacos and amazingly can eat three of them when we have them! To me there is nothing better than having a get together with the family and having what we call a "taco bar", complete with all of the fixings: cheese, lettuce, onions, tomatoes, olives, salsa and of course the meat. Making tacos is so easy not to mention a lot of fun! The girls really love loading up their tacos with all the veggies and goodies that they can stuff in those shells, we find that sometimes we have to get the bigger shells just to fit everything in them. The bonding that we do over our taco nights is second to none as well. We laugh, we talk about daily events, and cartoons or maybe even our plans, it's just an overall good time for everyone. Sometimes we always fell like we make the same dishes and serve the same foods over and over again, but taco night is always a permanent staple in our always busy schedule.
Why not set aside time at least once a month for your very own family taco night? You can do just this with Old El Paso! We have been using Old El Paso products for years and really love the flavor and variety that they have to offer. They offer a variety of seasonings, sides, sauces, and meal kits as simple solutions for a night of catching up with the family over a delicious taco dinner. I know that good conversations start with yummy tacos, we as a family have had some of the best! To satisfy your Mexican Style cravings, the Old El Paso line of products includes chiles (which make not only a great addition to your taco meat, but I have also tried them in my delicious Taco Bake Casserole), dinner kits (which include soft and hard shells in one box), dips and sides (Spanish Rice), enchilada sauce, refried beans, seasoning mixes, shells, taco sauce and salsa.
