My kids are always hungry after school so I usually have something prepared for them, but sometimes they’ll make their own after school snacks.

Depending on how hungry, they are, they’ll either grab some chips and fruit or make a light meal.
My kids love enchiladas, but they can’t make them from scratch, so I decided to teach them a kid friendly version.
This version is fast, easy, and perfect for kids 10 and older.

We used Delimex Beef and CheeseTaquitos from Walmart. You can find them in the frozen food section and there’s a $1 off Delimex coupon available. 

Being this was our first time making this recipe, we also grabbed some Bagel Bites to create a backup recipe just in case. 

Bagel Bites are another kid friendly after school snack option and is made with real cheese and homemade sauce with 0g trans fat. There is a $0.50 off Bagel Bites coupon available as well. 

We also needed shredded cheese(s) and enchilada sauce.

Since we didn’t have any sauce in the pantry, we cheated and added a tablespoon of Chili powder to one cup spaghetti sauce to create a quick sauce.

Full Ingredients:
✅1 box of Delimex Chicken or Beef Taquitos 
✅1 large can of Green or Red Enchilada Sauce
✅Shredded Cheeses
Directions:
1- Preheat oven to 325º. 
2 – Lay frozen taquitos into a casserole dish. 
3 – Pour the entire can of Enchilada Sauce over taquitos until covered.
4 – Cover with cheese. 
5 – Bake for 20 minutes ?or until sauce is bubbly.
They also heated some Pepperoni Bagel Bites while their enchiladas cooked.

My 10 and 12 year olds were able to put the entire casserole together themselves. 

They also arranged the Bagel Bites on a baking sheet, and I popped everything in the oven.

They really loved the flavor and texture. 
My daughter hates mushy enchiladas and always asks me to cook her’s a little longer, but the texture was perfect using Delimex Taquitos.
 Because they were frozen and already firm, the finished dish had a texture she enjoyed.

We’re looking forward to enjoying these kid friendly after school snacks throughout the coming school year.

I’m also looking forward to seeing my children become more independent in the kitchen.
