    i would prefer mild i am a wimp and cannot handle spicy! pepper is spicy to me!

Congrats Myra! An email has been sent to you!



If your child is anything like mine, you know that every plate of food that is put before them gets the royal inspection.

“Are there green things in there?”

“I can see onions.”

“I think this stuff looks too runny.”

“It’s too hard to pick up with a fork!”

And our son’s favourite line:

“This is too spicy hot. It will burn my ‘froat’ when it falls into my belly.”


The kid can’t handle it.

A lot of people can’t, which is why Old El Paso is getting my praise for making a new line of products that are sure to satisfy the tenderest of taste buds and to satisfy the people who love a good kick to their meals!

I decided to give the Extra Mild Super Tasty Kit a try.

Chunky was super excited about it!

Aside from the ground beef, sour cream and our favourite toppings, everything was included in the kit to prepare the yummiest tacos.

And it was fast and easy to make.

Hello after school and work time saver!

I won’t lie and say that I didn’t worry about Chunky liking them. When I put the taco on his plate he smirked and said “I smell spice.”

Kid is too smart.

After a little coaxing and allowing him to top his own taco with whatever he wanted, he went in for a bite.

I’m not so sure about this…



I’m going in…



When Old El Paso said, “Extra Mild Super Tasty” they really meant it.

These were delicious!!

Definitely kid and parent approved.

They also have a Hot And Spicy Fajita Kit and Mild Taco Seasoning.

    I prefer hot but my stomach doesn’t agree with me so I usually end up eating mild.

  2. I loves the hot and spicy foods! My stomach hates the hot and spicy foodsd! (If you ever read my post titled “You’re Welcome” you’ll understand). I’m glad you found something Chunky isn’t questioning. I don’t know what it is, but mine all eat green stuff (knock all the wood) so that makes me even happier when I hear of a fickle eater liking something fully.

  3. I cannot stand spicy hot!! Love that they’re coming out with this. Awesome.

  4. Marsha Marsha

    Mild! 9 months of reflux = spiceaphobia 🙂

  5. I love spicy but my kids don’t so we always go for mild. We love tacos!

  6. Kande Kande

    I am with Chunky – mild all the way! I loathe spice ( hot – love tasty spices!). My husband is polar opposite ( yes polar is a weird word to use when talking about spice!), he adores hot hot hot! And yet he married me ( haha)

    I prefer hot.

  11. Dayle B. Dayle B.

    I would prefer mild but sons like theirs hot, hot, hot and spicy.
    Old el Paso has been a family fav. for years.
    Thanks for making me smile, re your sons, comments.
    love the line “I can see onions.”
    Great pics too.

    I love HOT – the spicier the better. That being said I must confess that I made a cooked version of spicy vegetable juice that is TOO HOT for me! I have to mix it with with water and some lemon juice. It is still hot but very tasty!
