To say that cooking for kids can be a challenge is an understatement. Their tastes change day-to-day; they hate spice and they don’t like texture. With kids, simpler is better. One solution to make things easier is to serve dinner like a salad bar, with toppings and choices that they choose to add laid out. It may be a few more dishes in the end but everyone will get what they want on their plate with a lot less drama, and it gives them the independence they crave. Dinners that work well with this concept include baked potatoes, rice bowls, pasta, tacos, and these tasty tostadas! Depending on your kids ages, they might be able to set the table, shred the cheese or slice the olives while you do the other cooking.
