Old El Paso Taco Boats Dinner Kit

I love tacos. But whether you’re crunching on hard shells or wrapping up in soft tortillas, one thing is the same: it can get REALLY messy! So I was super excited when Old El Paso was kind enough to send me a box of their new and improved way to get your Taco Tuesday on: Old El Paso Taco Boats Dinner Kit.

Each kit contains 8 of Old El Paso’s signature Stand ‘n Stuff Flour Tortillas, a packet of Seasoning Mix, and a pouch of Mild Taco Sauce.  I browned up a pound of 80/20 ground beef from ALDI, drained it, then simmered it with 2/3 cup water and the Seasoning Mix.  I gathered all my fresh toppings, and dinner was ready to go!

What’s the final verdict ALDI Nerd?

I have seen other Old El Paso Stand ‘n Stuff products in the ALDI Finds aisle before. I’d pick it up…look at it…and eventually set it back down again. I would think, “Are the Stand ‘n Stuff shells really better?”  Now I know, that yes, they are!

Gone are the days of frustrated children at the dinner table because their crunchy shell fell over and all the toppings came spilling out. No longer will I have to hear a child cry because their little hands couldn’t hold their soft tortilla together and it became unwrapped.  These taco boats, not only taste great, but are a tear-free way to get Taco Tuesday from your plate to your belly.

  1. Do you eat it with a spoon fork, and then eat the shell last? I’m confused by this product. I guess I’d like to see a mid-meal photo lol

  2. These boats are so cool! Do they also make these gluten free? This is a great post, I bet your family loved this dinner
