I love Mexican food, ever since I tasted my first burrito as a student in New York, I have been a super fan. However it is not a food that I find easy to recreate in the kitchen from scratch which is why I am also a massive fan of the Old El Paso range.
We were recently set a selection of products to review, including Enchiladas, two rice one pan meals, a couple of easy to make casserole sauces and some relishes for us to dip our tortilla chips in.
The whole range has been scrumptious. We took the One Pan Rice meals on our recent holiday to Cornwall, and they were the perfect easy option for the end of the day. The One Pan Rice Meals come together in moments and can be made veggie or with meat and the whole family wolved them down (before I even snapped a shot!).
The One Pan Rice Meals take twenty minutes to prepare – you can see the recipe here. I definitely recommend adding a red pepper for a bit of colour and extra zing.
I have used the casserole sachets in the slow cooker, last night we enjoyed quorn mince, mixed with tomato, sweetcorn, red pepper, onion and a Chilli and Roasted Casserole mix. The end result was utterly scrumptious, it was a chilli meets casserole sensation.
So delicious that I had it as leftovers for lunch!
The Old El Paso website has lots of ideas for meals and ideas for Mexican themed parties, it is a great resource to check out if you are planning a Mexican night in either for the girls, the boys or the children!
Tomorrow night we are having enchiladas – I can hardly wait!
Thrifty wise – the Old El Paso range is really well priced, with deals being found in many well known supermarkets. So you get great food at a great price!
