A great way to get into the season of Back to School is of course with after school snacks like this Simple Guacamole Recipe with El Monterey Taquitos! This post is written on behalf of El Monterey, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
I’m not sure about you, but when we are back to school the afternoons just get very hectic. The minute that we walk in the door, my kids are already asking for snacks and dinner. Many times I don’t even have a chance to set my purse down without them raiding the pantry. The best thing I’ve found to do is have something already prepared and easily accessible to let them snack on before dinner time.
It just makes the afternoons much less chaotic and gives them a little snack during homework or rest time too. I prefer to mix a little fresh with frozen. In this case I decided to whip up a batch of guacamole earlier in the week, that way all I had to do was warm up El Monterey Taquitos and they were ready for dipping! My husband is just as bad as my kids too, so this works out well for him too. He comes in just after we get home and normally I’m right in between trying to transition from helping the kids with homework and getting dinner on the table.
I guess we could call this a little appetizer for him and an after school snack for my kids. El Monterey is a brand I trust, they make their food with real ingredients, so you can trust that you will get the best quality of ingredients in their foods. We decided to pick up the Beef Taquitos and the Chicken & Cheese Taquitos.
My family LOVES these two flavors so they are always a must with our after school snacking. Their commitment to quality is really what makes them the #1 company of Mexican frozen foods in the country. That says a lot about the care that goes into their products.
Now, once you have your tasty Taquitos prepared, all you need to do is pair them with this simple guacamole and you will be all set. We also had a little side of sour cream for ours too. Then, it was snack time and a little quiet time, gain my thoughts time for mommy. We can all admit that we all need a few minutes to ourselves, right? Especially during back to school season!
Enjoy this tasty dip and snack!
