Taco Tuesday is the easiest dinner in our house. While it does not always fall on a Tuesday there is some type of Tex Mex Dish is made weekly. Tacos are a super easy go to and we have a huge container of Old El Paso Taco Seasoning in our cabinet. We always have a stash of corn and flour tortillas in the fridge, I think you know where I am going with this.
However, when I want to mix Taco Tuesday up because we are getting a little tired of Tacos, a little more thought needs to go into the meal planning. Well, you would not believe what I found in the freezer section, Old El Paso Entrees.
My husband was especially skeptical about this new product. I decided to try the fajitas, in both chicken and beef varieties. This is something I don’t usually make at home very often but love ordering it out at Mexican Restaurants.
Each bag serves 2 people. When I dumped it out into their pans, one non-stick per the directions and the other just a pan coated with non-stick spray, I thought this could serve more than 2 people.
When the ingredients were heated in the pan and defrosted, the volume came down significantly, glad I made 2 bags. In the 12 minutes you are heating up the fajita mixture, heat some tortillas in the oven, (you must buy this separately)
This looks amazing and homemade too. The flavoring was not overwhelming and there was a great balance of both meat and veggies. Too often you get a frozen entrée like this and it is heavy on the veggies and less on the meat.
We had some left over, but my husband was out-of-town for this meal. It would have been gone if he was around. I might have the extra on a salad for lunch.
Let Old El Paso do your cooking next Taco Tuesday. You can pick from quesadilla, burritos and enchiladas. I will definitely be going back, just be sure to check the serving size, most entrees serve 2.
