I hate to throw out food but sometimes eating leftovers can be a drag. I have learned to re-purpose my leftovers into tasty delicious meals. My daughter really loves this recipe because she can put it together all on her own. She can’t wait for the day she can use the oven and make it all on her own.

She treated last night and made me this Mexican Recipes Kids- Mexican Lasanga

    This sounds great and it is an easy one to make with the grandkids, they are not coming tonight but I have leftover from tacos on sunday and I think I will make one of these. Thank you for sharing this and I like any recipes that kids can participate in making or make on their own

    I’ve made Mexican Lasagna before, but never like this. Your recipe looks great. My nearly 4 year old has been taking an interest in the kitchen lately, and this is something we could easily make together. Thank you 🙂
