Family dinners at our house are pretty predictable... if only because they are unpredictable. I never know how many of my kids are going to be home for dinner... and sometimes I'll start out feeding just a couple of kids, and by the time they are done eating, the next set of kids is home and ready to eat!
Recently, I was offered a chance to sample Old El Paso Taco Seasoning through MyBlogSpark. Old El Paso sent me a seasoning packet, some chili serving plates and a cute cactus chip and dip set. Plus, they included a gift card so that I could buy the needed ingredients for a family taco night!
We chose to make chicken tacos... yummy!!! This is how I made them...
I put 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts in my crock pot.
I sprinkled the packet of Old El Paso Taco Seasoning over the top of the chicken.
I mixed one jar of Old El Paso Taco Sauce with one can of cream of chicken soup.
I cooked it on low for about 6 hours.
Then, I shredded up the chicken (and let me tell you the extra sauce was yummy... save it for the rice!!) and set up a taco bar for the kids to go crazy!
It was a crazy fun night!! The kids love tacos and just calling our night "family taco night" made it a special occasion. And we celebrated the night by planning ahead so that everyone was home! And the tacos were so delicious and so easy!!
Something else that we did was we played the El Tacodor game from the Old El Paso website. Click here to print your copy... free game! And then I just dare you to try to say "carrots" with your mouth closed, not open even a crack! Hilarious!!

This is a blog where I will be posting things that I find interesting, worth checking out, or are my favorite things.
One of my favorite things to do is to laugh! This blog will be a place for me to share the things that bring me joy... and help me in my desire to laugh until my cheeks hurt
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children... to leave the world a better place... to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
