Bite of the Week - Old El Paso Soft Taco Dinner Kit

I love me some tacos! There is just something about the taste of meat, cheese, and veggies all stuffed into some kind of shell that makes my mouth water. Because Mom is well aware of my taco obsession, she will occasionally buy the take-home taco kits so that she can make them for dinner (and shut me up in the process). Old El Paso was having a sale last week on their soft taco dinner kit ($2.50; regular $2.99), so Mom decided to buy one and silence my cries of, "Tacos, tacos, tacos!"

THE VERDICT: Excellent! The Old El Paso kit comes with 10 flour tortillas, mild taco sauce, and seasoning mix. Mom also makes sure she has lettuce, onions, shredded cheese, and sour cream so that Dad, Mal, and I can make the tacos to our liking. I always just grab everything I see and stuff it into my tortilla. It's messy, but outstandingly tasty. Mom likes her taco a little on the plain side, but she enjoys the taste just as much as I do. If I could cook, I would definitely buy these kits all the time. Fortunately for my wallet, and my waistline, I have to wait until Mom decides that she's in the mood for Mexican to have this yummy meal. Perhaps I can convince her to make them on my upcoming 30th birthday. She'll probably just tell me that I'm old enough to make them myself. What a bummer.
