Win a Taco Party from Old El Paso

While we definitely have some quirky holiday traditions [5] in our family, we also have some very delicious ones.

Years ago, FishPapa said, “Let’s learn how to make tamales [6].” So we did. It was kind of like the blind leading the blind. But, with my handy dandy Sunset Mexican Food Cookbook [7], we figured out how to do it.

Since then, every December I buy dried corn husks, and we whip up a few batches of Tamales [6].

Not all the FishKids love tamales. What is WITH them?! So, we make it a little fiesta with other taco items. In addition to tamales, I lay out Mexican Rice [8], taco meat, tortillas, cheese, lettuce, homemade salsa [9], and other toppings. This year, our Christmas Eve will be Muy Delicioso.

You don’t have to make tamales to make a fun Taco Party. In fact, a number of brands, like Old El Paso [10], make it easy for you to pull together a fun taco night at home. You can even check out their free Tacodor trivia game. [11]

According to Old El Paso,

To satisfy your Mexican style cravings, the Old El Paso® line up of products includes chilies, dinner kits, dips and sides, enchilada sauce, refried beans, seasoning mixes, shells, taco sauce and salsa. The Old El Paso taco seasoning mix selection includes flavors like Burrito, Cheesy Taco, Chili, Fajita, Taco, Mild Taco and even a seasoning with 40% less sodium.
