Celebrate Cinco de Mayo with an Old El Paso Taco Bar and $10 Paypal Cash Giveaway #Publixfiesta #ad

Cinco de Mayo is approaching, and we love to have a big fiesta. After a month of seemingly never-ending rain, May usually brings lots of sunshine and beautiful weather. Cinco de Mayo is an excuse to get our family and friends together for lots of fun and food, and it’s even easier to create a great authentic Mexican menu with Old El Paso and Avocados from Mexico found at Publix! My in-laws open their pool, and we all enjoy the first opportunity of the year to go swimming while the kids play and we all pig out on tacos and our beverages of choice.

It’s easy to setup a DIY Taco Bar with tons of options to choose from. It’s fun to see what flavor combinations each guest will choose, and the kids have a blast making their own tacos.

I can’t wait for our Cinco de Mayo fiesta, but that doesn’t mean we have to wait until May 5 to enjoy tacos! My family loves to setup our own little taco bar at home for a great family meal that we can all customize. Old El Paso’s dinner kits are the perfect size to feed a family. Hubby and I both really like adding our own twist to Double Layer tacos, and the Hard & Soft Taco Dinner Kit found at Publix contains almost everything we need to make them in one box!


Just add meat, a can of Old El Paso Traditional Refried Beans and your own toppings to create some fantastic tacos that are to die for!

Publix is making it even easier to make these tacos and many more Old El Paso recipe favorites with special Cinco de Mayo in store savings that run from 4/30/15-5/5/15.

Of course I don’t want to keep these awesome tacos all to myself. I want to share their yummy goodness with you, so here’s how to make them. Don’t forget to use the save $1 on 3 Old El Paso products coupon with this meal!



  • 1 Old El Paso Hard & Soft Shell Taco Dinner Kit
  • 1 can Old El Paso Traditional Refried Beans
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1lb ground hamburger
  • 1 jar Old El Paso taco sauce
  • toppings of choice (cheese, sour cream, etc)

Brown hamburger meat in 10″ skillet and drain grease.



 Add seasoning mix from Old El Paso Hard & Soft Taco Dinner Kit and 2/3 cup water and mix.


Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 3-4 minutes.


Microwave the Old El Paso Traditional Refried beans 2-3 minutes to heat.


Time to assemble the tacos!

Place a dollop of refried beans on a soft shell taco and spread to the edges covering the entire shell. Add more or less depending on how thick you want your tacos. We like to make ours thick! Place a hard shell taco in the center of the soft shell taco with beans, and wrap the soft shell taco carefully around the hard shell.


Fill with meat and your favorite toppings. Enjoy!


The shells included in the Old El Paso Hard & Soft Taco Dinner Kit will make 6 super stuffed tacos, or add some extra shells to make “normal” sized tacos.

There is one phrase I hear everyday in my house, and it doesn’t matter if I’m over due for a grocery trip or if I’ve just returned from our local Publix with food galore. “I’m hungry, but there’s nothing to eat!” Not surprisingly my husband, Ben, is the usual culprit. I know he doesn’t want […]
