Ole!! (I have a giveaway)

Today I am taking a break from McFatty Monday. Wednesday continues to be the wrench in my week as far as exercise goes. Luckily I was snowed in for 3 days with a near empty pantry, so the week wasn't a total waste. (besides Superbowl Sunday)

This week I'm bringing back Mom Friendly Meals Monday for a giveaway that is quite possibly the most Friendliest Mom Meal Ever...


When the people at El Monterey asked me to try their New & Improved Family Entrees I was excited but a little hesitant. Frozen meals can be tricky. Even though they are a quick and easy meal solution, they can also sometimes be lacking in the taste department. This is not the case with El Monterey.
Their Family Entrees come in 4 flavor's; Chicken Enchilada, Cheese Enchilada, Spicy Beef Enchilada, and Chicken Mexicana. The enchilada varieties come served over Spanish rice which is a nice addition and adds more substance to the meal. They take an hour to bake, which is a little longer than some entrees out there, but I promise you that they are worth the wait.
All 4 flavors are delicious. The Spicy Beef enchilada's and Chicken Mexicana were a little too spicy for me but I tend to be a little wussy when it comes to spicy food. A little dab of sour cream cooled it down perfectly for me. The Chicken enchilada's were my favorite and Jack, my 14 month old son, even enjoyed a taste of them. It was more than enough food for Kevin and I, especially when we added veggies and a salad. We even had some leftovers which we enjoyed with a margarita after Jack went to bed!

**And in keeping with McFatty Monday a serving -which is quite filling- is only 290 calories which isnt too bad for a frozen meal!
