Chilaquiles in a Cup

Make these Chilaquiles in a cup. GrandmaIdeas.comRemember the post where I wrote about making a cake in a cup?

I love those little cakes. So yummy. So easy to make. So easy to clean up!

Sometimes, when your grandkids visit, they (or you!) may need a snack. Or, brunch. Or lunch. Or a light supper. Whatever.

Let’s take that in-a-cup idea. Change it. Spice it up. And what do you get? Chilaquiles-in-a-cup!

This little recipe is another time saver. Another one that’s easy to make and easy to clean up. And, it’s sure to please grandkids’ palates — especially if they like Dorito chips.

You could easily double this recipe for older grandkids — or for those who are a tad hungrier.

Because this recipe is so easy and quick to make, this would be a great one for a budding chef (grandchild) to learn how to make. And, one for them to feel success after they make it.

    Love this idea! My grandchildren usually want to eat something “fun” when they’re at my house, and they could even make this themselves for the most part. I’ll have to save this recipe for the next time they come over.
