With 5 kids I love any dinner idea that is easy to make and something the entire family will enjoy. This build your own burrito bar is a simple way for everyone to enjoy dinner and be able to customize it however they want.
Burrito Bar – An Easy Dinner Idea
If you’re looking for an easy dinner tonight- we’ve got you covered! Putting together a build your own burrito bar can be as simple or as fancy as you want it to be. This is one of those dinners I use all the time. It can be tailored to fit every budget, dietary need, allergy, taste preference etc.
Lay out any ingredients that work well for your family and then let everyone add what they want to their own burritos- everyone is happy. This works especially well for picky kids (and husbands)!
Burrito Bar Ideas
So what I thought I would do today is make a list of all the ingredients my family uses or has used for our burrito bars so when you’re planning your menu this week (or planning for dinner tonight) you can have a bunch of variety to go off of.
If you’re feeling extra ambitious, you should try this recipe for the best Homemade Flour Tortillas to add to your burrito bar. I will also open up the comments on this post so you can add any ingredients to the list that I may have forgotten. Here we go:
