Old El Pasto Chicken Fajitas Entree For Two!…

Posted Nov 19 2013 6:54am

Hi there!  Happy Tuesday to you!  Yesterday morning didn’t go as well as I thought it was going to in regards to free Dunkin’ Donuts.  The app was not working properly and didn’t display the coupon until much later in the afternoon.  So they are now honoring the coupon this morning to make up for it.  I will be getting my coffee this morning.  I’m definitely looking forward to that!  I was looking forward to it yesterday but at least I still get to enjoy it, only a day late.

Last night, Mike and I were able to try one of Old El Paso’s new Frozen Entree line for Two thanks to My Blog Spark.  Since, I don’t eat beef, I picked up the Chicken Fajitas to try.

Please note that it does not come with tortillas, those must be purchased separately

We purchased Old El Paso torillas to serve the fajitas in which worked out well.  I don’t like buying bagged meals all that often because I do prefer to make the food myself and know what goes into what I am making.  I like to have frozen meals every now and again.  It makes preparing dinner much easier to do.  I do enjoy Old El Paso products so I was looking forward to trying out their new frozen food line.

When you open the bag, all of the contents must be put into a hot skillet.  You cook it for 10-15 minutes until the chicken and vegetables and cooked and heated throughout.

It took me about 15 minutes to cook the fajitas to my liking.  I like when everything is cooked well done and the sauce spread throughout the vegetables and chicken.  I was surprised how much food there really was in the skillet.  It was plenty of food for two people.

We also roasted a few vegetables and made french fries to go along with the fajitas.

I thought the fajitas were excellent!  They had the right amount of spice and the vegetables were cooked down plenty for my liking.  The chicken was soft and tender as well.  Everything had great flavor because of the sauce it was in!  I would definitely purchase this again.  It made eating Mexican food, which is a favorite of mine very easy!

In case you are curious about the ingredients of the fajitas, they are as follows: roasted onions, cooked white chicken meat , roasted red bell peppers, roasted green bell peppers, soybean oil, maltodextrin, salt, spice, modified corn starch, dextrose garlic, isolated soy protein, onion, natural flavor, sodium phosphate, lemon juice concentrate, citric acid, autolyzed yeast extract, grill flavor (from vegetable oil), corn syrup solids, natural smoke flavor. dried contains soy ingredients.
