Taste Test: Grilled-Nacho Night with Old El Paso
See how Old El Paso’s newest seasonings and Mexican cooking sauces rocked our editors’ backyard cookout.
The product: Old El Paso’s new sour cream and guacamole seasoning mixes and ready-made Mexican cooking sauces.
What we thought: The seasonings are a great shortcut to homemade—especially the sour cream mix, which has fantastic flavor and gives our favorite restaurant version a run for its money. The versatility of the Mexican cooking sauces continues to impress us. We used the roasted tomato cooking sauce to marinate chicken breasts and portabella mushrooms, the chipotle cooking sauce to cook chorizo, and classic fajita seasoning to flavor flank steak—all just before grilling. The cooking sauces resulted in a ton of flavor without the time (or mess) of overnight marinades, and though this was our first time making nachos on the grill, it certainly won’t be the last!
