Wrap it Up - Toddler Approved!

Last week we shared a list of our favorite prepared foods - foods we prefer to buy over making homemade.  Well, Ezekiel wraps made the list - wraps/tortillas are one food I know I would royally mess up if I tried to make them from scratch!  I always have a bag of small and large Ezekiel wraps in my freezer so I thought I would share a few kid-friendly ideas for this ultimate food transporter!  

I use them often in my son's lunches and for easy dinners when I feel like keeping things super simple.  Your little one can get involved by helping you create many of these options while also picking out his own toppings, which gives him some independence.  What is your favorite way to use a wrap?

Quesadillas

This is another quick and simple option for your little one that allows them to pick and choose what topping they want.  

 

Directions

  1. Melt a 1/2 teaspoon of butter in a skillet on medium to medium-high heat (just enough to coat the bottom of the skillet).
  2. Place wrap in skillet and spread ~1/4 to 1/2 cup cheese over the entire tortilla (the amount of cheese depends on the size of the tortilla).
  3. Spread ~1/4-1/2 cup filling (see below) of choice over only 1/2 of the tortilla in a single layer.
  4. As the cheese starts to melt, lift a corner of the wrap to check the bottom.  When cheese is melted and the underside of the wrap is golden, the quesadilla is done.
  5. Fold the quesadilla in half to sandwich the filling.  
  6. Use a spatula to transfer quesadilla to a cutting board, slice into wedges, and serve immediately. 

Options for filling:  leftover cooked vegetables, shredded meat, refried beans or cooked beans.

Our Favorite Prepared Foods

Sure, the idea of baking, dehydrating, fermenting, canning, and preserving all of our own culinary staples and garnishment sounds romantic, but let's be real - we don't have time.  That is a full-time job and we aren't pioneers.  We all need the option of a little convenience in life, so we put together a list of some of our favorite prepared foods and staple condiments that help keep life simple, but oh-so-delicious!
