Ole! Its a Mexican Fiesta including an Old El Paso Giveaway!

Giveaway is CLOSED – thank you to all who entered!




My favorite thing in the whole world is a PINATA.  I love them.  In fact children really are not the best participants.  I mean they can’t swing very well. at all.  And their aim – puh-lease.  Pinatas really should be left for the more mature audience.  Those of us who want to blind fold ourselves, put a bat in our hands and wack at the paper mache until it falls into little bits of candy-goodness.

And my second favorite thing about the Mexican culture is their COLORS.  Who doesn’t love giant ribbons of red, yellow and green?  And music? And dance?  And FOOD!

For an awesome Margarita recipe, and all the party decoration ideas you need visit Pizzazzerie (the picture above is from her fabulous Mexican Fiesta).

For the food?  As luck would have it, below is an Old El Paso Giveaway!

Old El Paso is introducing their softer tortilla shells (contains gluten) with a very fun Old El Paso Giveaway!  For gluten free folks, do as we prefer to do and make a big ol’ heap of taco salad, and then scoop it up with toasted broken Old El Paso Taco Shells.
