We are big fans of Mexican meals, fajitas, burritos and tacos, we love them all. We really like Mexican food for several reasons, it is versatile, you can adapt the recipe according to your chosen ingredients, it is full of flavour and easy to make.
Old El Paso has a wide range of convenient tips, perfect to create delicious meals within a few minutes. We have been using the kits for a long time, we have recently shared Quick and Nutritious Mexican Family Meal Ideas featuring Old El Paso Taco Kits and One Pan Rice Meal.
We were sent the new Stand ‘n’ Stuff Soft Taco Kit, containing soft flour tortillas which are uniquely shaped to make them easy to fill and eat with delicious taco fillings.
Each kit comes with 8 stand ‘n’ stuff soft tortillas, seasoning mix and salsa. They are available in aa selection of flavours: extra mild super tasty, smoky BBQ and garlic & paprika.
The kits are very easy to make following the instructions provided in the pack. It is recommended to simply add 500g of minced beef, 1 lettuce, 2 tomatoes and 125g grated cheese per kit. It is ready in 2 minutes and it serves 3-4 people.
We made Garlic & Paprika and Smoky BBQ following the instructions, topping the mince beef with lettuce, tomato, grated cheese and salsa. The kit was a success with the whole family, hubby preferred the garlic & paprika seasoning without tomato, while I preferred the smoky BBQ seasoning with lots of tomato.
We loved the shape of the soft tortillas, make them easy to fill and eat. It is recommended not to overfill the tacos, but it was a bit hard to resist the temptation.
Once we had the traditional way, we decided to experiment a bit, and add chicken, peppers and onions to the extra mild super tasty seasoning mix. It was then topped with lettuce, grated cheese and salsa. We loved it!
We are looking forward to many more family meals using Old El Paso Stand ‘n’ Stuff kits.
