Cooking with Old El Paso at Food at 52 and a giveaway

Mexican food is firm favorite in my house, we love the flavours and easy recipes that can be created with simple ingredients. Some of our favorite Mexican recipes are tortillas, burritos, enchiladas, nachos and we love the salsa and the guacamoles.

Old El Paso make cooking Mexican food easy with their deliciou range of sauces, salsas and the ready to fill taco and tortilla  shells and burritos. They recently hosted a Mexican cookery class at Food at 52, a cookery school in Old Street which I absolutely adore having been there several times to cook.

As we waited for the rest of the team to arrive we were spoilt with some delicious nibbles and drinks to get us in the mood of the Mexican evening.

Attending these cookery events are always fun because not only do you get some recipe inspiration from the product, get to enjoy the food created but also make some new foodie friends too.

The cookery session was fun, the vegetarians made a filling of sweet potato, onions, peppers and courgettes  while the non vegetarians created a filling from mince and also chopped  lots of lovely salad toppings to go on top of the tortillas.

I was a guest of Old El Paso at Food at 52 and this post is all about my personal experience of the evening.
