A Mexican Feast


We were recently sent a lovely lot of goodies from Old ElPaso for Mummy to make us a Mexican feast for dinner.

MeeMee and L came home for the weekend of my birthday, so Mummy decided to cook up the feast on the Saturday night.

1 x can Refried Beans

1 x 340g jar of cooking sauce for fajitas (Smoky BBQ)

Mummy bought:

550g of chicken breasts cut into strips

2 x avocados

Here is what she cooked 🙂

Mexican Wedges

Cut the potatos into chunky wedges, add two table spoons of vegetable oil and the packet of seasoning. Mix well so poattoes are coated in the spices.

Preheat oven to 180  Pop into a dish. They take about 40 minutes to cook  until they are golden and crispy – turn once half way through.

Add a little oil to a frying pan, and heat. Add the chicken, and stir fry until cooked. Add the diced onion and peppers and the fajita seasoning mix OR the jar of fajita cooking sauce and continue to cook until the chicken is golden.

Mummy pierced the packet of Tortillas and popped into the microwave for 20 seconds to warm.

Whilst the chicken was cooking, MeeMee cut the avocados in half and scooped out the flesh into a bowl, mashing it, then adding the packet of guacamole spice mix and mixing well.

Mummy and the others carried everything to the table, so they could fill their own tortilla with the chicken and vegetables. They ate the wedges with guacamole, mild salsa and a sour cream dip that Mummy bought. She also bought nachos and cheese, grated the cheese and covered the nachos in an oven proof dish. Bake in the oven for five minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

I didn’t have any of the food – it was all a little spice for me! Mummy and everyone else said it was delicious. MeeMee and L are going to tell their Uni friends about the Old ElPaso range, and they are planning a Mexican Night in their house in Bristol too.

Thank you Old ElPaso, it was a lovely meal for my family as a celebration. Do you like Mexican food?




  1. We love mexican food and we’re having it this evening. However we prefer a drier mix so use a herb/spice seasoning instead, and no longer use Old El Paso seasoning since it went smoky. We preferred it before it changed.
