Old El Paso Entrees Giveaway

For the most part, I like to cook and create my own meals using my personal healthy preferences. Some days after work though, I do not feel like cooking. I just want something really quick to eat and end up turning to a sandwich, a big salad or a frozen pizza.

I was recently sent a coupon for an Old El Paso frozen entrée to try. These are found in the freezer section of most grocery stores. Entrée options include fajitas, enchiladas, quesadillas and burritos. My husband and I love Mexican food but it often takes a long time to prepare. These entrees are fully cooked and just need to be heated up.

With my coupon, I chose to try the chicken enchiladas to try. I love enchiladas so I knew that this would be my best bet. They are made with corn tortillas, white meat chicken, ancho chile sauce and Monterey Jack cheese. I took a look at the ingredient list and do wish that it was simpler with more natural ingredients.

One serving of enchiladas has 320 calories, 1120 mg of sodium, 17 g protein, 12 g fat, 6 g saturated fat and 4 grams of fiber. The sodium content is very high in these so I would recommend limiting these to if you are in a pinch.

The enchiladas tasted pretty good for a frozen meal. I enjoyed mine with a side salad (always make sure to get your vegetables in for the day!). The entrees are made to serve two people which is perfect for my husband and I.

Although I probably would not purchase these again in the future due to the unnatural ingredients and high sodium content, I do not think that they are the worst option if you are super busy and need a quick meal.

Giveaway

The giveaway will be for an Old El Paso gift set including:

-A coupon for an Old El Paso frozen entrée (up to $7.99)

-$10 Visa Gift Card

-A Mexican Chip and Dip Bowl


Let’s keep it simple to enter. Just leave a comment below what your favorite Mexican dish is. The giveaway will end 11/21 at Midnight.

  2. I love all Mexican food!! If I had to choose...I'd have to say chicken and cheese quesadilla. My favorite Mexican restaurants have chicken dishes smothered in cheese with beans and rice but it's called something different each time. And I can (and have!) made a meal out of chips and salsa! Mmm
