My kids really do not like mexican food, unless you count only taco meat in a crunchy Doritos flavored taco Mexican! Two of the three are rather quite picky. I decided to try something different since we had extra fresh Amish chicken, I made enchiladas. The only ingredients I put in the enchiladas was the chicken seasoned with the taco seasoning and cheese and then I covered them with more cheese and enchilada sauce. Everyone ate them…it was a good night!

Old El Paso

We all know Mexican food is at its best with fresh ingredients, and produce doesn’t come any fresher than direct from your local Farmer’s Market – so why not add some flavor to your fresh vegetables with Old El Paso® Taco and Fajita Seasonings? Use your fresh vegetables and herbs to add variety to your Mexican night. Bring your tacos, enchiladas, and quesadillas up a notch with Old El Paso. Stay Connected:

    Always lots of fresh fruit and whatever veggies are seasonal. Most folks use tomatoes in their “tossed” salads, but I find that strawberries are excellent and when they are priced really good, that is the way I go. More flavor and maybe even better for you. For anything Mexican I make it is usually iceberg lettuce, onions, and maybe some peppers if I have them on hand. Salsa to top.

    We have a lot of necessary fresh ingredients. We recently made the switch to cutting out processed foods. We still save money by doing so because we go to a food co-op for our produce. Recently we have reverted a LITTLE back to having SOME processed foods in our diet, similar to these products, mainly because I have barely been working, since I’m physically falling apart it seems.

    I always have a bowl of fresh fruit on the counter. And, I always have a bag with carrot and celery sticks cut up in the refrigerator. This way, whenever I want a snack, I can easily grab a healthy one easily.
