#MyBlogSpark Go Beyond Tacos with Old El Paso - Review Giveaway and Recipe - ends 11/5 US

The products below were provided to me in exchange for my honest opinions.


Being a native California, and also having ancestral ties to Mexico, we can't help but love South of the Border delicacies!  When most people think of Mexican food, they think tacos.  Tacos are a favorite in our home, but sometimes we crave for a little more action.  MyBlogSpark and Old El Paso challenged us to go Beyond Tacos!


I was asked to find a recipe that went beyond the tacos we usually have.  I was challenged to try quesadillas, fajitas, burritos, or enchiladas using products provided to us by Old El Paso.  I got quite an assorted package from MyBlogSpark to make a sensational dinner. 

~One package of Old El Paso Flour Tortillas for burritos

~One can of Old El Paso Refried Beans

~One can of Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce

~$10 Gift Card to Walmart to help get the extra fixings for dinner.




Then to top the dinner off to make it into a party, a square dip and chip.


 We did Go Beyond Tacos!  I set about finding a great recipe to try at Old El Paso.  Last Friday, for our meatless meal of the week, we had Black Bean and Cheese Enchiladas with Old El Paso Refried Beans on the side.  They were so delicious.




Black Bean and Cheese Enchiladas

Ingredients

1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 medium onion, fine chopped (1/2 cup)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 can (15 oz) black bean, drained and rinsed
1 Package (11 oz) Old El Paso® Flour Tortillas for burritos (8 tortillas; 8 inch), heated
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack Cheese (8 oz.)
1 can (10 oz) Old El Paso® Enchilada Sauce
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Old El Paso® Thick 'n Chunky Salsa, if desired

Preparation

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cumin; cook and stir until onion is tender. Stir in beans.

2.  Place about 3 tablespoons bean mixture in center of each warm tortilla. Top each with 1/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese. Roll up tightly; place, seam side down, in baking dish. Spoon enchilada sauce over tortillas. Spray sheet of foil with cooking spray; cover baking dish with foil, sprayed side down.
3.  Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with Cheddar cheese. Serve enchiladas with salsa.

Substitutions: You can substitute 1 tablespoon of granulated onion for the chopped onion. (My kids don't like to see the chopped onions in foods, so we always use granulated onion and garlic)
We did add some finely chopped cilantro and granulated garlic to the filling.


So go ahead and Go Beyond Tacos! Get inspired and explore the possibilities beyond tacos for your family’s next Mexican night with delicious recipes for enchiladas, quesadillas, fajitas or burritos using your favorite Old El Paso® ingredients.
