It's party time- are you ready for some football? Old El Paso review & giveaway

Even if you aren't a super huge sports nut, chances are if you are in the US, you are going to be watching some football come February 7th.

According to research 61% of adults will be watching the big game-  and since neither of my teams (Pats and Steelers) are playing this year, I'll say- I hope the Saints make it-  I did live in Louisiana for 10 years after all, and 3 of the divas were born there,so there is some small sense of loyalty.

We used to have a big party but lately we just kick back at home.  Regardless of what you do, food is a HUGE part of the festivities.  HUGE!  And when my teams aren't playing, pretty much all I care about-  sad but true. ;-)

This year thanks to My Blog Spark and Old El Paso, our menu will be spiced up some.

Truth be told, I've used Old El Paso diced green chilies for...  as long as I've been cooking with chilies. 

My Blog Spark sent me a Tackle The Taste pack which included 2 cans of Old El Paso diced green chilies, a football shaped serving dish and paper goods.

This gave me the perfect excuse to make a big old pot of Taco Soup (the first time I've ever tried to make it at home- it's one of those things we like to get out but never made ourselves for some reason-  it's really easy and delish)  we kind of winged it and added things that sounded good willy-nilly like we do.

One of the things I really like about Old El Paso chilies is that they really pack a punch flavor wise, but not a lot of heat.  I love spicy foods but not the burn the roof of your mouth off kind of spice, just jam-packed with flavor.  My kids eat them, always have, as does Ian, and a couple of them don't like any flavor *waves hi to Blondie* err I mean any spice at all, so you don't have to worry about keeping the good stuff out of your recipes or making separate batches.

Old El Paso green chilies are a great addition to your Mexican or Tex-Mex inspired dishes.
