nice! I will try this Sunday

We loved it! It definitely took longer than I expected to make, but it was worth it because we ended up with such a fun meal. It's always nice when my 4-yr-old daughter eats her dinner, and she did tonight! Be warned, you will have a ton of food. We're a family of three, and we have at least 2/3 of the tray left over. Hoping it keeps OK for lunch tomorrow!

Delicious- it was a hit with my family! I would make this again but perhaps using taco seasoning instead of the mix of spices.
