Another thought would be sloppy joes. My brother sent me the attached recipe once. I don’t know if it is any good. I haven’t made it. Well, it is on a different computer. I’ll send it on later.

Kids love those layered bean dips too. And they also like Nachos with that melted cheese that is sold at the store for nachos. You know, with the spicy seasonings that you heat and pour over chips. That could be in a crock pot with chips next to them for kids to serve themselves in paper bowls.

And how about those flour tortillas that have cream cheese, etc.
