These Seven Layer Burritos are an easy dinner meal that your children can get in the kitchen and help you prepare.
Today I am partnering with Uncle Ben’s to show you an easy way to use their Ready Rice for dinner prep.
It’s that time of year when everyone is trying to get back into a good routine with school, sports schedules, and dinner times. We are constantly on the go running between different soccer, volleyball, and dance practices. With our busy schedules, it is great to spend some quality time in the kitchen preparing easy meals that we can enjoy together.
Our kids have grown up helping us in the kitchen. They love to be involved in all the steps. Did you know that studies have shown that cooking with your children teaches them to have better eating habits later in life? Cooking can also be a fun time to catch up on the day with them too. Let them handle the little things like mashing and stirring while you do the chopping. Then start asking questions about what they learned in school and who did what.
When Uncle Ben’s® contacted me about using one of their rice products in a recipe, I couldn’t wait to make something easy that our kids could help out with.
We all enjoy Mexican food, so we chose the Spanish Style Ready Rice® for in our burritos.
Seven Layer Burritos have always been one of my favorites. Our daughter made the Spicy Guacamole for our dinner, while our son cooked the rice.
The Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice® is so easy to make. Tear one corner and pop it in the microwave for 90 seconds. My son couldn’t believe that was all he had to do for it.
You might want to give them some guidelines on how much is too much though. Some of their burritos ended up too big to fold at first, but they quickly figured out how to not over fill them.
