Taco Night with MyBlogSpark and Old El Paso Giveaway {closed}

Congrats #50 Louis!

Photobucket


I always have joked that I must be part Mexican because I love Mexican food.  I love it all.  Rice, beans, tacos, enchiladas, queso fresco, chihuahua cheese, tamales etc.  When I met my husband I realized that we both shared a love for this particular cuisine.  He, being a chef, makes AMAZING Mexican food even your abuela would be proud of!


Fast forward to Dexter, the love of my life....this child ADORES Mexican food too and its not because we force it on him either.  He loves anything wrapped in a tortilla really.  We never need a reason for Taco Night in our house but when MyBlogSpark approached me about doing an Old El Paso Taco Night I thought OH YEAH, PARTY!!  Too bad I am too pregnant for some Dos Equis too!  That will have to wait until our annual Cinco de Mayo party!  Tequila, wait for me!


Last night my wonderful husband came home with 5 pounds of chicken to put in our Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker to make shredded chicken!  Bestill. My. Heart.  He also bought 3 pounds of ground beef to make TACOS!!  When we do taco night we go all out because they make amazing leftovers for the rest of the week and what doesn't get eaten (as if) gets frozen!


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.  We used the Original Taco Seasoning.

To be honest, we usually do not use packaged taco seasoning because my husband makes his own but Old El Paso's was just as good!  We all really enjoyed it!  Here are a couple of pictures that I snagged of Dexter on Taco Night at the Smith House!

Onions, Cilantro, Lettuce and Limes that my husband put into neat little piles.  You can also catch a glimpse of the chicken and beef too!

Dexter being his usual sneaky 2 year-old self!


Photobucket
Yep, thats right!  He LOVES his tacos!
