It’s always a pleasure partnering with Old El Paso to bring you new Mexican-style recipes. I’ve developed a giant cheeseburger that is so flavorful, it’s about to become your new favorite burger. Love having Old El Paso taco seasoning on hand for simple weeknight dinners. We use it in so many great recipes.

Isn’t grilling season the best? So fun spending time outside, swimming and grilling with family and friends. Even though it’s so warm in Arizona, we still take advantage of this great time of year! Bring on the grilling recipes!
