“This is a kid-friendly snack I make with the 3 year old I watch. It is really good and she loves to make it. It can be made from leftovers or fresh--whatever you have on hand.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 tortillas (I prefer the wheat style ones but the white ones work just fine)
  • 12 cup prepared macaroni and cheese (leftovers work fine)
  • 1 slice cheese, if you like it extra gooey use (optional)


  1. Microwave Directions:
  2. Place 1 of the tortilla shells on a microwave plate.
  3. Place the Mac and Cheese (and the sliced cheese if desired) on top of the shell.
  4. Place the 2nd shell over the Mac and Cheese.
  5. Cook for 1 minute and 45 seconds or until cheese is melted.
  6. Cut into quarters and let cool for about 1 minute.
  7. Yum Yum Eat It Up.
  8. Stove Top Directions.
  9. Place Mac and Cheese (and extra cheese desired put it closer to the bottom) on 1 of the shells.
  10. Place Mac and Cheese covered shell in warm pan over medium heat.
