Tex Mex Treats

I have to share this recipe for one of her daily snacks/treats.  She loves this one and last night I but a bit of a spin on it.  We have a tough times getting her to eat meat especially fish.  She is a typical kid and very back and forth.  One day she likes something the next the "that's nasty look" pops on her face.   We are lucky most of her snacks she likes and gobbles down readily, same with her breakfast oatmeals.  So here it is, give it a try.

Oh and since Bobby did not post an update yet, it was a whole week of either climbing out or I'd her her on the monitor just as she'd start climbing and run in and get her.  FUN FUN.
