“This is a favorite at the daycare where I work, I can't think of one child who doesn't like it, and most have seconds. I also made it for a group of teenagers on a recent camping trip, and they enjoyed it as well. At the daycare we serve this as is with tortilla chips for dipping. However I did up the taco seasoning and also added some canned tomatoes and served with salsa on the side when I made it for the teenagers. We never measure when we make it at the daycare, we just add ingredients until it seems right.”
