Old El Paso family taco night & Giveaway

I believe that dinner is such an important family time.  Great discussions and much needed family interactions take place when we all sit down at the dinner table each night.  When you add Mexican food to the mix (my favorite) the night is perfect.  That is why I love that Old El Paso is promoting scheduling "family taco night" once a month.
With a variety of seasonings and other complementary products, Old El Paso offers everything you need for fun nights with the family.

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.

And to keep your family laughing at the dinner table, have some fun with El Tacodor™, the world’s only family taco night Game. With El Tacodor, your family can share a special night at home by challenging one another to quick fire trivia, wordplay and pantomime. Visit today to download instructions, a score card, and a challenge sheet for even more fun on family taco night!
You can already see why I was so excited to get an Old El Paso “family taco night” prize pack from My Blog Spark and Old El Paso.
It contained a packet of Old El Paso Taco Seasoning, a Cactus Chip & Dip Serving dish, a set of 3 Fiesta Chili Pepper serving dishes and a $10 gift card to purchase taco fixings.

  1. Hi Tiffanee. This morning, I was led to your blog by Kirsten -- the " Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker" and I became a follower of your blog. I'm glad I did -- I scanned through the archives and I love the type of recipes you share! Not too long ago, Kirsten did an Old El Paso giveaway. I, too, love Mexican food and use Old El Paso products. I'm fussy about quality -- so much so, that each October I travel to a "little out-of the way" ranch, in Hatch, New Mexico, to hand select my green chile and, also, I prefer Old El Paso products above the rest. I don't know WHY, but I'm NUTS about the Saguaro Chip & Dip Serving dish, and the Fiesta Chili Pepper serving dishes. They are adorable. I've had my eye on them since Kirsten's giveaway. The $10 gift card sounds great, but I'm "in love" with the saguaro dish. ::sighing:: I love dressing the table with a "South of the Border" ambience when serving Mexican food. The games sound like fun, as well. At my next fiesta, I think we'll play "Meat-N-Greet!" Thanks for the giveaway and ANOTHER chance to win the Saguaro dish. Crossing my fingers, eyes and legs! I know, I know -- I sound nuts! I don't think nuts are on the menu, but I'm loco for the saguaro dish!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
