Probably my favourite thing about Old El Paso meal kits is how easy it makes preparing dinner. We're a busy family of seven and are always out & about doing something, so having a ready-made kit that I can just throw together with some meat & vegetables is ideal.
Even better, the new Casserole recipe mixes mean I can just pop it all in the slow cooker in the morning after I get the kids off to school, so then I can get on with our day and come dinnertime we have a tasty meal ready for us.
My Mexican lasagne recipe is another slow cooker favourite, quick & easy and always polished off in no time by the Mister & kids.
For those who aren't so keen on the spicier dishes, the one-pan extra mild, super tasty rice meal is ideal. H likes Mexican food but has a more sensitive palate and prefers the milder options, and he really enjoyed the one pan rice. As did I, because I only had one pan to clear up afterwards! Made with chicken, onion, sweetcorn and peppers it was a tasty, filling dish and we all enjoyed it - it is very mild so if that's your preference then I would highly recommend it, we'll definitely be having both of them again.
Now, you can't sample Mexican food without trying tacos. Admittedly we don't normally have them because they are SO messy (the kids, not the tacos) and we always end up with everything everywhere.I had forgotten how much I like them, they make a great meal served with salad and potato wedges.
The Old El Paso range of products are versatile in such a way that you can make them to your own personal tastes. You can try them with different meats, or make them vegetarian, or even make them less spicy by adding less of the seasonings if that's to your taste. I think that the best thing about Mexican food is that the 'buffet style' of it makes it a great family meal to all enjoy together around the table, just set out some nachos and quesadillas as sides and get stuck in!
