Old El Paso "Family Taco Night" Prize Pack Giveaway


{This giveaway is now closed: congrats to #264 - Vicki} Does your family have a monthly "taco night?" We have taco night (or some version of it) at least once-a-week. MyBlogSpark sent us an Old El Paso "Family Taco Night" prize pack to make family taco night extra fun. 

The reason we have a version of taco night every week is because it's so easy, so yummy, and so inexpensive. And it can be pretty healthy. The more veggies you add, the better.

For this particular "taco night," I made taco soup. It's basically a mexican style tomato and veggie soup. I puree it all up into creamy veggie goodness, add taco seasoning, a little chicken, and tortillas. It's yummy. 

I often make my own taco seasonings, but it was nice to have the Old El Paso seasoning available and ready to go. I often have Old El Paso refried beans, sauces, and taco shells on hand to make easy taco meals.  Lucky for you, MyBlogSpark and Old El Paso want to offer one Suburban Jungle reader a chance to have their own taco night prize pack:
Here's what's included:
 $10 visa gift card to by the rest of your taco fixings
Packet of Old El Paso Taco seasoning
Cactus chip & dip serving tra
3 Fiesta Chili Pepper serving dishes

To Enter to win: Leave a comment telling me how you make "taco night" fun, healthy or special.

I use chicken instead of beef or lean ground beef. Also, incorporate more beans as they are lean!

we love making walking taco's ..it is easy and super easy to clean up

Anonymous said...

The key to making Taco night fun is always changing the food around. Taco Salad, Taco Pizza, Taco Shells, etc. Always have a key supply of fresh ingredients. Letting the kids select what they want, always makes it special.

We'd play "The Nacho Incident" as it would go well with the theme. I'd need to look up some rules variations to see if we can make the game a bit more interesting as the default rules were kind of mediocre, though the game has a great theme. (smuggling quality Tex-Mex into Canada)

Tacos are a fav. for my family especially my son!!! We go camping for a large chunk of the summer and actually get sick of BBQ -- we will sometimes make tacos and the kids love it!!! It's a fast and easy meal that the kids love to make their own way. Thanks for the chance to win.

I have two nephews (ages 6 and 2) who are tactile and love building things... especially making their own food. So Taco Night is fun to begin with because they get to build their own tacos, but I also add in a Mexican theme by dragging out my sombreros, marracas, etc. And then add a piniata at the end... This isn't a weekly occurrence, but great fun for them when I spend quality time... Thanks!

We also love tacos and serve a taco type meal once a week. Several ways I make it healthier without losing great flavor: I cook very lean ground meat with 2 cups cooked or 15 oz. can rinsed black beans or pinto beans. I use low-fat cheeses and low-fat sour cream for the toppings. I also serve lots of diced tomatoes and lettuce, olives and diced fresh avocado to get our veggie serving in. And don't forget healthy and basically fat free salsa. creedamy at yahoo dot com
