Burrito Burgers
By Serves 6

If your kids watch Nickelodeon, they may be familiar with the "Spaghetti Tacos" on iCarly. This is a twist on that same concept! Rather than putting those beans and veggies in a taco shell, why not try a bun? Burrito burgers are a funny way to switch things up for children that like Mexican food. Call it by whichever Mexican dish they like best - "Nacho Burger' or "Taco Burger' could also work!
