Coca-Cola and Old El Paso join forces – Make Some Noise!
Hi Everyone. Following last month’s awesome feedback about our Mexican night at home, Old El Paso have sent me some more products to enjoy with my family.
Old El Paso is looking to support the full meal solution and is engaging with link-ups with brands, like this activity with Coca Cola and in fact they are promoting the COMBO MEAL. When you visit leading supermarkets, to shop for Old El Paso, you will notice, this coming month that you will see some products packaged like the Fajita Kit or the Stand ‘N Stuff Taco Kit as pre-packed meals with either Coca Cola or Coca Cola Zero Sugar, at a discounted price!
Selena Taylor, International Trade Communications Manager at CCE, comments: “Coca Cola and Old El Paso have similar attributes around sharing social occasions at home with friends and family.
“They are also hugely popular with consumers – Coca-Cola is the number one branded soft drink at evening meal times. Taking this into account, we expect our link deal with Old El Paso will prove popular with shoppers, increasing basket spend by buying both brands for their evening meal.”
On this occasion, I whipped up a very simple recipe to fill the mini tortillas for lunch and prepared it with my dad who had never tried Mexican style eating. You know what? It was good fun prepping these photos with him and eating the tortillas and drinking a little coke with him that warm sunny day in Malta.
- 2 pounds ground beef
- 1 small onion, diced
- 3-4 cloves garlic minced
- 1 jalapeno, seeded and finely diced
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon onion salt
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- In a large skillet over medium heat, cook ground beef with onion, garlic and jalapeno, breaking the meat into small pieces, until beef is cooked through, 6-8 minutes; drain grease if needed.
- Stir in all of the spices, along with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook for an additional minute or two.
- Stir in the tomato sauce. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Reseason with salt and pepper, to taste, if needed.
- Serve with taco shells, tortillas, and your favorite taco toppings.
I hope you enjoyed this little update from my Blog!
I always look forward to a Mexican Fiesta at home and as always, I thank Old El Paso for entrusting me with sharing the news!
