Family Fiesta with Old El Paso® Frozen Entrees
Disclosure: The information and prize pack was provided by Old El Paso® through Platefull Co-Op, but opinions are unbiased and 100% my own.
I confess I’d never bought Old El Paso® frozen entrees prior to receiving coupons and goodies for the product review, but now I’m a fan. I’m not a huge supporter of frozen entrees, generally preferring fresh and homemade, but Old El Paso® frozen entrees surprised me with their great taste.
I’d never be so ridiculous to proclaim their burritos to be the most amazing Mexican food EVER, because Old El Paso® frozen entrees are simply Americanized fare with a slight nod in the direction of being remotely close to true Mexican food. However, the beef and chicken burritos were tasty enough that even my picky daughter, Ivy, asked for second servings. In my experience I’ve found that just because something isn’t authentic doesn’t mean it can’t taste good.
As a family, my husband, daughter, and I spend our lives on-the-go and busy, so when rare moments of spending extended time together occur, especially on school nights, we try to make them special. We currently lack a dining table (the other went to tree heaven after many great years of use), so I set up everything on our coffee table. I filled the margarita glasses with Ginger Ale, so everyone felt included. I love the two festive plates and serving tray sent with the package, because they added the perfect touch to our “Family Fiesta“, and I’ll be breaking them out for our future family and friend functions, too.
Overall, we ended up devouring everything at the table, and the Family Fiesta was a qualified success. Spending time with family is always amazing, and throwing food into the equation is a must. I recommend planning your own Old El Paso® family party and telling me how it went. For more information on Old El Paso® product offerings, check them out on Facebook.
