  1. My favorites are the soft and hard taco dinner kits because of the kids they prefer the hard and I like soft tacos …so we can both have what we want. I also like that the dinner kits come with a yummy seasoning and include a,sauce usually. Mexican avacado ate the bomb our Publix on Palmetto Park sells them.

    I hope I win!


  2. The only Old El Paso Kit I’ve ever purchased was the soft taco kit and it was so convenient and produced delicious results! I eat Mexican Avocados all the time.


  3. I love all of the delicious ingredients in your tacos! Shrimp are the best! My family and I love the Stand and Stuff Taco Dinner Kits!
