“This is a favorite in our family. It's super easy to make. It's healthy. AND it travels well when you have to fit a meal into a night of sports or other kids' activities. We wrap these in foil, individually. Warm in the oven at 300F, then put into a small cooler (no ice, of course) to keep hot until ready to eat. Stow along a bag of tortillia chips too!!!”
