Easy Mid-Week Living: Old El Paso Recipe Kits

Old El Paso Taco Review

The lovely folks at Old El Paso sent us a little box of goodies to try out and see if it made our busy lives a little bit easier. We’ve been having a bit of a tough time of it recently, a few struggles with our house purchase on top of usual weekly stresses has left us little time for cooking and planning recipes so we were really thankful to grab one of the Soft Taco Kits one evening and throw a delicious dinner together with minimal effort.

The kit includes 8 soft tacos (which I’d never tried before and would probably still rather use a tortilla wrap instead) a cooking sauce and this Cool Herb Topping Mix pictured above. I’ve never been a huge fan of sour cream but actually when you add the mix it’s super tasty. I’m kind of gutted you can’t buy this separately.

As the packs were all very mild we were concerned there wouldn’t be much taste, so we added an additional taco seasoning mix to the onion, chicken and sauce from the soft taco kit. The result was a very rich, very tasty sauce so it probably wasn’t necessary… but I still recommend it. Yum!

Once the chicken was cooked we spooned some mix into each soft taco. There wasn’t too much to go around, but once we added all your typical goodies: avocado, guacamole, jalapenos, peppers, salsa, sour cream, cheese – they were full to bursting! They actually recommend on the pack not to over fill them too, because the filling does squirt out when you bite into them.

I love food like this that you can build yourself; it works great for fussy eaters, families and just those that like to play with their food like me! Old El Paso has always been one of my favourite cooking brands and with their new kits (there are tonnes!) they remain to be the best home cooking Mexican brand, in my opinion. I love their refried beans and I’ve got a tin of their black beans in the cupboard for my next culinary adventure as well as some left overs from my lovely care package. Thanks Old El Paso!

Outfit Post: Folksy Florals in Tenerife

Leeds Blogger

What a lovely week we’ve had in Tenerife! I’m so happy that we got to do so much exploring, spent a few hours on a volcano, wandered the streets of a Canarian city and ate so much good food, oh my God. There were 6 people in our party, but on this evening Boyfriend and I went for a little wander alone and a few drinks in our new favourite bar – looking forward to telling you guys about that one!

I picked out this dress from Free People last Christmas. I absolutely adore their bohemian style full of unusual florals and dress shapes unlike anything else I’ve seen on the high street. My dress has a deep v cut at the back, but what I think is a great touch from Free People is their tiny clips that wrap around your bra strap so the sleeves don’t constantly fall down. Their range is pricey, but the pieces I’ve bought from them really do stand out as well made and nicely fitted.

I just so happened to stumble across these shoes in the Debenhams sale a couple of months later than match crazy perfectly! I mean they were made for each other, right? You know I love a good brogue, but I do think they’re an excellent holiday shoe. Really comfortable, but still stylish for us gals that feel a bit lost in Summer clothes.

I love dressing up these folksy florals for Winter too, with thick burgundy tights and boots. The colours are so rich and deep, perfect for the A/W season. It’s quite thin though, so a good excuse for lots of layers. I’m going to search for a burgundy polo neck this year.
