Family food from Old El Paso

May 12, 2014

I’m one of these really annoying Plain Jane’s when it comes to my food, honestly I am terrible I can’t eat anything with pepper or spice without it burning the inside of my mouth. Over time Mr Boo has come to accept my food ‘quirks’ so rarely asks for me to take a bite of something new he is trying as he knows that it is really not my cup of tea.

The Boo Roo and Tigger Too household was recently sent an Old El Paso hamper full of goodies, which as first glance I knew that Mr Boo would be very happy as he loves their fajitas. Whilst I knew that he would be happy I did feel a tinge of sadness that we wouldn’t be able to enjoy the hamper as a family, that was until I saw their new Extra Mild, Super Tasty, One Pan Rice Meal for chicken.

Extra Mild Super Tasty One Pan Rice Meal
The perfect all-in-one meal for the whole family & without the heat thanks to this extra mild, super tasty recipe, flavourful seasoned rice, tender chicken and your choice of vegetables, simmered in a delicious creamy lime stir in sauce.

Ingredients
  1. 1 x Old El Paso Extra Mild Super Tasty One Pan Rice Meal kit
  2. 500g chicken breast
  3. 1 x green pepper (optional)
  4. 1 x onion
  5. 1 can of Green Giant Sweet corn 198g (optional)
  6. 2 tbsp of oil or FryLight Spray
  7. 350ml water
Instructions
  1. Slice the chicken breasts, pepper and onion into medium sized chunks
  2. Add 2 tablespoons of oil to the pan (I prefer to use FryLight spray) and stir fry the chicken over a high heat until browned
  3. Add the vegetable chucks and sweetcorn, stir well and leave to cook for 2-3 minutes
  4. Add the seasoned rice and give it a good stir for 1 minute or so
  5. Add the contents of the sauce pouch, spice mix and 350ml of water to the pan and stir well
  6. Bring to the boil and then reduce to a medium heat and leave to simmer for 10 minutes, stirring gently every now and again
  7. Serve straight from the pan in the centre of the table and enjoy with family and friends
Notes
  1. As I am not a fan of peppers or sweetcorn I omitted it from the recipe and it still tasted delicious

    I absolutely love their fajita making kit. I’ve never really tried anything else though. Hmm maybe I should!

    I like their burritos and fajitas.

    I might have to give this recipe a try. Sounds yummy

    Love the fajita kits, will definitely be looking for the rice

    Ooo perfect festival food! *makes a mental note*

    Mexican food is my OH’s absolute favourite. He always said that if he was on death row (lets hope he never is) that Mexican food would be his last supper!
    Unfortunately for me, he likes it the spicer the better!

    YUM! I am only eating proteins at the moment and is damn hard to look at your dish. So yummy looking!

    Come and link up with my FridayFoodie linky today 🙂 http://www.romanianmum.com/2014/05/friday-foodie-round-up-fish-dishes.html#.U3XRXF5wylI

    What a fantastic dish, it looks delicious. I love everything in one pot, it saves so much on clearing up afterwards.

    I really like their kits, they make a mid week meal a lot of fun.

    I’ve not seen this one-pan kit before though but it sounds delicious.

    Ooooh we tried these! I loved them!

  • Rebecca May 16, 2014 at 6:41 pm

    That looks really tasty. I like Old El Paso for their Mexican food – it makes it so easy.

  • Amanda May 16, 2014 at 6:57 pm

    I am loving this idea, as a weekend quick tea! Mmm extra chilli for me!

  • Ruth May 16, 2014 at 11:26 pm

    One pot cooking is absolutely my kind of cooking! And it it’s Mexican then all the better 🙂 Great recipe, thanks for posting x

    We love El Paso, we often have Mexican nights and stuff our faces with lots of lovely food

  • becky May 17, 2014 at 7:19 am

    You could also use quorn pieces and they would be fabulous in this dish

  • Paul Wilson May 21, 2014 at 11:33 pm

    It’s impossible to actually burn the inside of your mouth, no matter how hot a dish you eat. The capsaicin in the chillies just triggers off the heat receptors in your mouth making you think you’re eating something hot.

    As a family we love Mexican food but have never tried Old El Paso, maybe we need to check them out
