  • taco casserole:
    1 pound ground beef & 1 can black beans cooked and drained
    Add 1 cup lite ranch dressing and 1/2 cup mild chunky salsa and chili powder to taste
    Layer in an 8x8 dish meat mix cheddar cheese then crushed corn chips finish with chips on top
    bake at 350 for about 20 min until cheese melts top with shredded lettuce and diced tomato.

    My Kids LOVE this one.

  • another fav.v(my kids are 6 and 3 btw)

    cook 2-3 chicken breast cool and cut up into small pieces set aside
    make instant or 'real mashed potatoes and set aside
    in a bowl combine 1 small container of sour cream and 1 an Crm or Chikn soup
    place chicken bits in the bottom of and 8x8 inch dish and pour soup mixture over the chicken
    top with mashed potatoes followed by crushed ritz. bake at 350 for about 20 min or until heated through

    sever with broccoli or peas. It's good to mix it all together IMO. DH likes it separate.

    Homemade personal pizas/ hamburger bun pizzas
    Fajitta or taco salad, but she loves salad so tacos or fajiitas

    Hope these ideas help. Also try talking to your toddler. What does she like that you or others make.

  • my son is so picky. i just find something he likes and vary it a little. spaghetti, buttered noodles, tacos, soup. If he helps cook it, he will eat it. I let him stir, and dump stuff in the pans ( before they go on the stove). Maybe let her help make something new?
