Growing up I remember we had taco night what seemed like every week it was my favorite dinner because it was the most fun. I loved that everyone could make there own type of taco my mom would fry up so many taco shells, tostada's and even make chips for nachos and we always had corn and flour tortillas to choose from. I used to love experimenting with all the different toppings and shells I remember my favorite to be tostadas with meat beans cheese lettuce and sour cream. My and my uncle used to have a taco eating contest I remember one time our score was 7 and 6 which I think we might have added a few more than we had actually eaten but it was ok we had fun.
I have so many great memories of taco nights growing up and its something I want my kids to experience. There is nothing like sitting together at the dinner table with tons of food in front of you able to pick and choose what you like. We have had alot of taco nights but they have been dwindling lately and i am not sure why. When My blog spark had offered for me to review Old El Paso seasoning I jumped at the chance it was the perfect way to get taco nights going again. They sent me A packet of Old El Paso seasoning mix, some very festive chili pepper dishes and a cactus shaped chip and dip holder and a $10 Gift card to go toward the rest of what we needed.
So Tonight my husband went to the store and got everything we needed he even got everything to make fresh salsa we would have done this alot sooner but he had been gone training for weeks and i felt it wouldn't have been a family taco night with out the whole family. First he made his "creation" of salsa as he calls it it had a little bit of everything and 2 kinds of peppers he has to have it spicy it came out great just made way to much our neighbors I'm sure will love some home made salsa. Then we both got to work making taco's I browned the meat and added the seasoning, made shells and cooked the beans while he chopped and grated It got done faster than I had thought it would . The seasoning was very simple to use and you only have to add water and of course the meat.I was very pleased with the taste of Old El Paso seasoning and I am not usually a fan of taco seasonings but it was very good and it wasn't to overpowering like some i have used.
We had a great time with family taco night and we will be doing alot more often. I am very excited to be able to share a Old El Paso family taco night prize pack with you from My blog spark and Old El Paso So you can make some fun family taco night memories too.
One Winner will receive the same pack I reviewed it comes with Old El Paso taco seasoning, 3 Chili pepper dishes, Cactus chip and dip dish and a $10 Gift card.
