Mission – Back To School
Well, normally, my 2nd night of eating is done with Mission flour tortillas. Often times I’ll roast a chicken, buying a larger size so we can feed the 5 of us twice- and the leftover chicken gets cut up or shredded into tiny pieces. Night #2 means quesadillas, enchiladas, tacos, or sandwich wraps — using the chicken from the night before. Its already marinated and cooked and means I have an hour of non-stress (or less) on night #2. I’m still working on figuring out a way to cook once and eat three times. (Suggestions welcome).
I like the ease and simplicity of the tortillas. They are so versatile and easy to keep on hand- and don’t ‘expire’ quickly. Great for the just in case nights- and by just in case I mean “just in case I decide to grill while the kids are swinging, and get distracted, and light the grill on fire.” You know, just in case. Keep some in your fridge!
I also like Mission tortillas because they are affordable, and budget-friendly. Feeding a family of 5 isn’t always inexpensive! Having these on hand makes for a cheap, easy, and healthy way to throw dinner together last minute, or to bring on the go, like for a picnic. I have also been known to shred carrots and chop cucumber to add more veggies into the kids’ and our diets.
We’ve also used the Mission tortillas to do fruit salsa for a healthier party snack- spread a tiny bit of butter and spread a tiny bit of sugar and cinnamon. Bake in the oven 5 min on each side at 350 degrees- then flip over and repeat. Meanwhile, cut all kinds of fruit up into tiny pieces and mix with some orange juice. Easy, healthy and kids love it. When tortillas are baked and cooled again cut into wedges with a knife or pizza cutter. This is a great thing to bring for a brunch or potluck as well!!
Mission tortillas spread with hummus are also a healthy, protein filled lunch option in these days with allergies in classrooms.
