Let’s face it, when you are working, taking care of kids, and a house- dinner can be hard to plan. I like easy and fast choices, which is probably why we make a lot of Mexican food. It is easy, it freezes well (if there are left-overs), and everyone seems to enjoy it.

My favorite for a family dinner or even a fun get together with friends to a “Make Your Own Burrito (or Taco or Tostada) bar.  The nice part about bringing all the ingredients together, is everyone can make what they want: Full burritos, cheese quesadillas, tortilla with guacamole, you name it, you can make it. And kids love Mission Flour Tortillas– I’ve found you can add cheese and some hidden veggies for a healthy quesadilla which is easy and good for them.

Ingredients for a Burrito Bar:IMG_7567

  • Mission Tortillas
  • Homemade Refried Beans
  • Cheese
  • Onions (fresh from the garden!)
  • Tomatoes (fresh from the garden!)
  • Salsa
  • Guacamole
  • Optional Beef or Chicken

Not only is this meal quick, simple, and yummy, but it doesn’t hurt your budget either. I usually pick up several packages of Mission tortillas when they are on sale and just stick them in my freezer for future use.
