Old El Paso Expands Range With Two-Person Meal Kits

General Mills-owned Mexican food brand Old El Paso has introduced a new range of street food-inspired meal kits with a focus on new two-person dining. The Street Vibes collection features Barbacoa and Al Pastor soft taco kits, Smoky Barbacoa and Sweet Chilli and Lime sauces and spice mixes, in response to the growing number of two-person households in the UK.

The range targets a younger demographic through fun flavours and formats, with quick and easy meals to make at home.

Our new 'Street Vibes' range captures the fun and flavourful world of street tacos and makes it accessible to everyone – on any night of the week!

"Not only are we innovating with Mexican-inspired flavours, but we're thrilled to launch our first meal kit for two people, helping our retail partners cater to a wider range of shoppers. There's real magic in these recipes – the perfect choice for any duo looking to turn up the vibes at the dinner table!"
