Old El Paso Makes My Nights Easier

We all know Mexican food is at its best with fresh ingredients, and produce doesn’t come any fresher than direct from your local Farmer’s Market – so why not add some flavor to your fresh vegetables with Old El Paso® Taco and Fajita Seasonings?

Use your fresh vegetables and herbs to add variety to your mexican night. Bring your tacos, enchiladas and quesadillas up a notch with Old El Paso®. Visit OldElPaso.com to find lots more recipes. Farmer’s Market fresh produce and Old El Paso® -- When You Gotta Have Mexican™!

For this review I received a complimentary Farmer's Market Old El Paso gift package from MyBlogSpark and Old El Paso to make a dinner for my family using most of the products included in the kit, plus some additional products that I picked up at my local Farmer's Market here in Harrisburg.

Included in My Kit:

◾Market basket
◾Avocado keeper
◾Chopper with storage bowls
◾Old El Paso® Taco & Fajita Tortillas
◾Old El Paso® Traditional Refried Beans
◾Old El Paso® Taco Seasoning

 At the market I purchased some organic fresh boneless chicken breasts, 2 green bell peppers, 2 large tomatoes. 1 avocado and a large onion. Gosh...I love buying fresh produce at this time of year from my local farmers...don't you? Anyway, once back home we got everything ready for family Fajita night.
I read the instructions on the Old El Paso products (super easy to understand) and browned up my chicken in a little bit of olive oil. I then tossed in some sliced green bell pepper, some onions and the Old El Paso fajiti seasoning mix and left it all simmer on low.While that was simmering away, I chopped up my tomatoes, the avocado and heated up the refried beans. Once done with all of the chopping chores...I shredded down some cheddar cheese and American cheese.

Once the chicken was done and everything was ready to go...I heated up the soft flour tortilla shells in the microwave for 12 seconds...just to warm them. We then loaded up the flour tortilla shells with the chicken mixture, the freshly chopped veggies, the refried beans and sprinkled a ton of cheese on top. Rolled them up and we were ready for dinner.
I was really surprised at how easy it was to make homemade fajitas and from start to finish...I had dinner on the table in less than 40 minutes tops! The family was shocked at how delicious the chicken fajitas tasted and they told me they were better than the ones we get from takeout at a local Mexican restaurant. Yay!!! Don't they look delicious? They were and since reviewing this Old El Paso dinner kit...I have went out and purchased two more!

If you are looking to save time in the kitchen and looking for easy-to-prepare dinner ideas, Old El Paso has got you covered! They make a wide variety of food products and dinner kits that will leave your family wanting more! You can also find some tasty Mexican recipes on their web site, so make sure you head on over there to grab some free recipes today while you are here.
