Old El Paso Chicken Enchiladas Review & Giveaway #MyBlogSpark

I personally have never been a fan of frozen foods for many reasons. One being that they don't taste the same as a meal made from scratch.
But when I tried the Old El Paso Chicken Enchiladas, I couldn't hold  back my thought that, man, it was one of the best frozen foods I have tasted ever. It tops all the frozen foods I have had before. It tasted as if I made it from scratch AND it was deliciously tasty and affordable.
The box of chicken enchiladas contained a total of 6 enchiladas. Which was way beyond enough for my family. It was enough for me my mom and my brother. We each got 2 enchiladas which is a normal meal for each of us. The box itself looked very attractive and the fact that I was taking home a "new" product by the Old El Paso made me even feel more important because I was about to try something new they came up with.
The instructions were easy to follow. Nothing difficult, even my little 12 year old brother can do this lol. Oven directions stated to heat the over for 365 degrees Fahrenheit on a cookie sheet. Pull back the corner of the film before putting the tray in. Set your timer for 40-45 minutes or until the cheese is melted. I usually leave in any bake foods in for the maximum time stated, so I left it in for 45 minutes.
It looks so good right? It even looks like I made it from scratch. My brother was highly excited for these chicken enchiladas by the way.
I decided to also make 2 sides to add with the chicken enchiladas from Old El Paso. I added organic beans, I made Mexican orange rice and in the middle I also added some sour cream. It made me feel super excited about this meal. But of course it looked better in person. The chicken enchiladas from Old El Paso were great. Although in this picture they look different, the cheese was melted so well, it didn't taste like frozen cheese. The chicken was also delicious and did I mention it wasn't salty? Which is a great thing because I've been really anti-salt for a while now. Overall, this meal was 100% successful. My family enjoyed it. It didn't take effort at all to prepare dinner for them. It tasted as if everything was made from scratch and our tummys were full and satisfied.
