I think it’s pretty clear just from the blog here that I love to cook and bake with my kids. When you cook with your kids you don’t need big elaborate meals with everything from scratch and hours of work. Nope, simple ingredients and shortcuts can make meal prep a breeze and make cooking with the kids a snap!

HERDEZ® Salsa Verde provides a delicious and flavorful base for these chicken flautas. The salsa verde also compliments the chicken wonderfully. A sprinkling of additional seasonings and you’ve got the makings of a delicious meal. All you need now is the meat.
