American food in Germany: Old El Paso brand in Rewe

Some of the German stores' take on American Mexican food (sounds complicated, eh?) really doesn't hit the mark. When manufacturers add Dorito-like coating to tortilla chips, for example, that totally ruins them for me. Tortilla chips should have salt on them, and nothing else.

I was pleasantly surprised to see that Rewe, a supermarket chain, carries Old El Paso brand "Mexican" food. This is a common brand in the US for Gringas to make their own taco, burritos, etc. Is it authentic, as far as Mexican food goes? Maybe not so much, but it fits well enough for TexMex from the supermarket, I suppose.

Seen at Rewe!
