Before we know it we will be sipping Pumpkin Spiced Lattes and sending the kids back to school but until then, we must savor every moment of summer. And that means not spending too much time in the kitchen prepping meals. That’s why I love Old El Paso Stand ‘N Stuff Shells and Traditional Refried Beans because not only can you make a tasty meal in a snap, tacos and summer go hand in hand!
With Old El Paso products easily available at your convenient neighborhood Walmart, you can stock up on a wide variety of products that can help make your summer cooking a breeze as well as super delish!
I happen to love the Old El Paso Stand n Stuff Shells because not only can you pack a ton of goodness in each shell, they stand up on their own so all the filling stays intact instead of all over the plate! Genius! Plus their Traditional Refried Beans are bursting with flavor and go well with anything from tacos and salads to dips and wraps!
And as a special treat, I’m sharing my summer time Artichoke “Fish” Taco recipe with you as it goes perfectly with my fave Old El Paso Shells!
1/2 cup vegan butter, melted
1 1/2 cups plain bread crumbs (gluten free if desired)
1 teaspoon old bay seasoning
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 (15 ounce) can quartered artichoke hearts, drained
3 cups high heat oil for frying
Heat oil in a small skillet to about 350°F.
Combine old bay seasoning, salt, pepper and breadcrumbs in a small bowl, mixing well.
Dip artichoke pieces in melted butter, coating well, then dip in breadcrumb mixture, making sure all sides are covered.
Fry breaded artichokes for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove artichokes from skillet and place on a paper towel to drain the excess oil.

Assembling the tacos:

On each shell, place a few chunks of artichoke then top with shredded cabbage, tomatoes, drizzle on aioli, a slice of avocado and top with a sprinkle of vegan parmesan or nacho cheese and cilantro. Serve with a lime wedge and enjoy!
