Old El Paso Family Taco Night {Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Tina!}

As much as I try to mix things up with meals around here, we do tend to stick with our rotation of the same handful of things. When you find something that the whole family loves, why change it, right?

High up on the list of meals that we all enjoy is tacos. I like that the prep time is minimal and that everyone can create their plate exactly as they like it... plus the fact that the kids do a great job eating is a major bonus. For us, family taco night definitely has a permanent place on the calendar, particularly now that we have had the chance to use the fun serving dishes that Old El Paso sent over.

To help make our family taco nights especially fun, Old El Paso has a line up of products that everyone can enjoy. Their chilies, dinner kits, dips and sides, enchilada sauce, refried beans, seasoning mixes, shells, taco sauce and salsa are the perfect main course or accompaniment to suit a wide variety of tastes.

The Old El Paso taco seasoning mix selection even includes flavors like Burrito, Cheesy Taco, Chili, Fajita, Taco, Mild Taco and a 40% less sodium seasoning option for great taste and less salt.

Or, to really mix things up, Betty Crocker has some fun recipes to put a twist on taco night, such as Easy Fish Tacos and Tarantula Tacos. What kid wouldn't think having a spooky olive spider crawling on their food wasn't really cool?

But that's not all. Old El Paso has another entertaining way to keep families laughing at the dinner table by having some fun with El Tacodor, the world's only family taco night game. Just download and print the instructions, score card and challenge sheet and you'll be ready for quickfire trivia, wordplay and pantomime fun that can be brought out any time your family is looking to have a little extra hilarity with dinner!

With a variety of seasonings and other complementary products, Old El Paso offers everything you need for deliciously fun nights with the family. Check out their website for news, great tips, recipes and more and even share your own family fiesta photos and videos on the El Tacodor Family Spotlight. Then, head to the store to stock up on Old El Paso products with a printable coupon for 60¢ off of any two of their products today!
