Our family is bananas about tacos and in particular we LOVE soft tacos.  Old El Paso has added preservative free Whole Grain Stand n Stuff Tortillas to their range of Mexican flavours and they are just as soft and delicious as we’ve all come to expect from this brand.  We couldn’t wait to try these and whipped up some tacos as soon as they arrived.  Ethan, in particular, loves these as he struggles with the mess of regular tacos, I love them because they are just so damn tasty!

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
