Soccer practices start tomorrow and school begins in just 3 weeks, which means life is going to be crazy busy before we know it! That is why I want to discuss simple after school cooking with Delimex and Bagel Bites. Because I recently moved and no longer have any other adult help for transporting kids to and from sports and activities, I decided to simplify my life in areas I felt could afford it. I nearly signed all 4 of my kids up for soccer, but thought better of it and decided my oldest would be the only one to play this season. I feel badly for the other kids, but their time and season will come. A mom’s gotta do what a mom’s gotta do to survive.
In addition to cutting back, I’ve started planning for after school snacking and easy dinner recipes. One of my goals is to eat out less and make more at home. Knowing myself and our busy schedule, I realize I am going to have times where I must rely on pre-packaged foods that I can make easy recipes with. That’s where my Taquito Enchiladas come in! Some days, my kids come home from school ravenous and need more than a light snack. These are perfect for those days, because they are so easy to prepare!
I know the kids love popping a few Delimex Taquitos into the microwave for a quick after school snack. One evening last week, I wanted to make something with a little more substance, but lacked the time. I was on then road and had minimal dishes and groceries, so I headed to Walmart and picked up a box of Delimex Taquitos, a can of tomato soup, enchilada sauce, an avocado and some shredded cheese. Dinner made easy, folks!
There has been a lot of hype around 30 minute meals, and easy ways to doctor up pre-packaged foods, but what about a 15 minute meal? The result was delish, and the kids all loved it.
