Help Please - Insulation Question


I recently acquired a small home between Austin Tx and Dallas Tx that has the paper or vapor barrier facing up into the attic. It is stapled like crazy.
I want to add more insulation. Can I cut slits in the vapor barrier and blow in the blow in insulation or do I have to remove the old batts ? Any advice will be appreciated!

Thanks in advance
