With Cinco de Mayo coming up, I really wanted to squeeze one more Mexican food post in.
In our house, it's unusual for everyone to agree on food, but we all love Mexican and Tex-Mex.
Sometimes Mexican food can be messy, especially for kids (Who am I kidding? I always make a mess with it, too).
These dippers are full of chicken fajita filling in a neat, fairly mess-free little roll-up.
