Old El Paso is a familiar brand, with fond memories of my mom showing me how to make quick and easy bean burritos with the Old El Paso refried beans.  So when I was asked if I would like to try the Old El Paso Green Chiles, I didn’t hesitate with a ‘yes’ answer.

I’m not all that fond of super spicy foods, but my hubby sure is, so I knew he would certainly enjoy them.  I convinced him to make his infamous chili and utilize the 4.5 oz cans of green chiles we received.  The addition of the chiles put his chili over the top – in a good way.

  1. It’s VERY clever how you’ve set up the ‘entries’ for this competition, Stacy. I just wanted to compliment you because if it was you the dreamt up the ‘add me on social media = 1 entry’ type system then you deserve recognition as that’s some real ‘out of the box’ thinking! 🙂
