ACCORDING to a recent survey, Mexican food has taken over Chinese as the UK’s most popular foreign cuisine. The fact that the range of Mexican food that’s now accessible to everyone has grown must have something to do with it and one of the biggest names that has enabled this is Old El Paso.
As well as Fajitas, everyone can now have Enchiladas, Quesadillas and Tacos whenever they wish and Old El Paso’s latest creation takes its inspiration from one of the newer, but most popular, Fajita kits. The Stand ‘N’ Stuff Soft Taco Kit is relatively new itself, allowing everyone to fill soft Tortillas with as much as you can without snapping them and making the mess that used to happen when creating crisp, open Tacos.
Old El Paso’s Crispy Chicken Fajita Kit proved a real success, offering everyone a chance to cover their Chicken in breadcrumbs to add a crunch to your Fajita. It was almost like putting mini Chicken Nuggets in there which a lot of people have probably done with their own DIY Mexican dishes. Who hasn’t had a Chicken Nugget Wrap.
It’s virtually the same kit as before except the flour Tortillas are replaced with soft Tacos. You roll the Chicken in the Breadcrumb mix and cook until golden brown. From there, it’s all up to you. You can add as much or as little as you like; Salsa, Guacamole, Sour Cream, Lettuce, Cheese or something spicy if that’s what you prefer. Either way, these will prove to be just as popular as the Fajita kit was and be very successful on your Mexican family or date night.
