Mini Tortilla Cups
They are so easy to throw together. All the ingredients can be prepared ahead of time, so all you need to do on the day is chuck them together. You can play around with the ingredients and substitute to your liking, or even ask the kids for their input. You could even get a production line going at the party and have the kids help you put them together. Kids absolutely love helping out in the kitchen and are more likely to eat them if they get to choose the ingredients. Note that these mini tortilla cups can get messy, so it may be best to serve them outside!
