Old El Paso review

Posted On April 21, 2014| Leave a reply

We regularly buy the Old El Paso mexican kits with the fajitas being a firm favorite in our house.  So when we were recently asked if we would like to review some Old El Paso products we were only too happy to take part.

I love the Old El Paso mexican kits.  They are so handy to have in the cupboard for those nights when you just want something quick and easy.  I keep trying to get Amelie to try one but she was having none of it until she discovered that one of her little friends loves them.  So when our big box of Old El Paso products arrived we decided that the Extra Mild Super Tasty One Pan Rice Meal would be a good starting point for her. All we needed to add was some diced chicken,a green pepper an onion and a can of sweetcorn 20 minutes later and we were sitting down. It was so easy to make and tasted great and whats more Amelie loved it.  This is one meal that conventionally I would never have brought but will definitely be buying in future.  Amelie has been asking me almost on a daily basis when we will be having a mexican again.


There were so many fab looking products I didn’t know where to start.  There were products like the Roasted Tomato & Pepper Fajita Dinner Kit which I would definitely buy  and items that before now such as Spicy Habanero Chilli and Roasted Garlic Casserole Recipe Mix and  Squeezy Zesty Red Jalapeno Relish I would almost certainly bypassed in the supermarket.


We decided to make an evening of it and had some of my family for dinner.  I just LOVED the Spicy Habanero Chilli and Roasted Garlic Casserole Recipe Mix, just sitting here now writing this is making my mouth water.  I am already planning on when we will have this again.  It said it was hot, however I don’t think it was any hotter than the Smoky Chipotle Chilli and Honey Casserole Recipe Mix (which indecently was also delicious.)  Again it was just so easy, beef, sweet potato and courgette and 2 hours in the oven.

I wasn’t so keen on the Squeezy Sweet Corn Relish and the Squeezy Zesty Red Jalapeno Relish.  Without wanting to sound too fussy it was the appearance of the Squeezy Sweet Corn Relish that put me off.  Everyone else assured me that it tasted great but I just couldn’t get over its appearance.  I did however like the Squeezy Zesty Red Jalapeno Relish I just thought it was a little on the sweet side.

Being a big fan of Old El Paso and I will definitely be adding some of their new products to my next shopping list.  I would highly recommend the casserole mixes so quick easy and delicious.
