General Mills is turning the spotlight on Old El Paso in a new TV ad for the Mexican brand's Beef & Bean Chilli Burritos.

The ad, which is on air now, centres around a burrito chilli chase with people in fancy dress racing to carry a pot of the product over the finish line.

Carrying the strapline "Share The Fun", it's hoped the eight-week push will encourage consumers to "create fun meal times at home".
