Vegetarian Mexican Dishes with Old El Paso

Over the last few months I have become a little addicted to cooking and with being off from school at the moment it gives me more of a chance to explore different recipes! My whole family and I are big fans of Mexican food and being Vegetarian it is something that you can't resist, so when I got the chance to review to some Old El Paso goodies I was beyond excited! Last weekend as soon as the parcel arrived we started planning a menu and here is what we cooked up...

Nachos Dinner Kit//
Guacamole// 
Sour Cream// 
The Nachos Dinner Kit comes with the chips and a yummy salsa that my dad ended up mixing together with some salad topping. The salsa was very tangy and the chips were salty so it complimented one another extremely well! Topped off with Sour Cream and Guacamole for extra taste.

Extra Mild Super Tasty Tortilla Bake//
JalapeƱo and Tomato Mix// 
Chipotle Chilli and Honey Mix // 
For mains we had this new product from Old El Paso, this tortilla bake sounds really interesting and once reading the back of the box we were sold on making the veggie version. The kit comes with 8 wraps, a stir in sauce and a topping sauce. For the filling instead of meat we used a mixed beans tin from the supermarket with some random vegetables like mushrooms (my favourite vegetable!) and added the stir in sauce which added some real Mexican flavour and it also smelt amazing. For some extra spice you could also add the casserole mixes as well, and use them in other dishes such as pasta! To make the bake, you layer up the wraps then the filling and a sprinkle of cheese followed by more wraps and so on until your're all done. Then using the topping sauce cover the top of the wraps so it is covered entirely with some cheese on top and stick it in the oven until its all crispy and bubbly.

Mild Rice Meal // 
Chilli and Garlic Rice Meal // 
To accompany the bake we cooked, we opened up a rice meal as well, these one pot meals are great if you are in a rush and want something quick and easy to cook. It took less than 10 minutes to cook and all you have to do is add water boil it and then let the rice cook until it becomes all fluffy and yummy. I had this rice the day after as well for lunch and it tasted just as good.

And then finally it was time to eat! I tried my best to present it well but I was more bothered about getting it in my tummy than taking a photo.I find it so cool how when you cut into the bake you can see all the different layers and it might not look like the most appetising thing in the picture but trust me it was. 

I hope you enjoyed this different style of post, I had so much fun cooking the food and writing the post even if it did make me feel really hungry 11 o'clock in the morning! Thanks to Old El Paso and Reprise Media for all the goodies I had so much fun!
