Taco Salad and Quesadilla Lunches

Taco and Quesadilla Lunch Collage

I made these two lunches for my teen nephews to take to school. They have similar ingredients but are different. They could be made for the same person on 2 different days or as I did for 2 different people on the same day. I used black beans leftover from dinner.

To see 12 taco lunches go here.

Taco Salad Lunch

This lunch was for my 14 year old nephew. He requested a taco salad. I wanted it to be different than the last taco lunch I made for him.

Top Container: Divided container

Contents: Tostitos Hint of Lime Flavored Tortilla Chips, homemade cinnamon tortilla chips, Nutella in Mini Dippers

Bottom Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Top Left: Black beans with onions sauteed in olive oil, with tomato sauce, and some hot sauce

Bottom Left: Watermelon

Right Side: Tomatoes, Mexican cheese blend, black olives, lettuce

Smooth taco sauce in Mini Dippers

Quesadilla Meal

I made this lunch for my 17 year old nephew. He wanted black bean quesadillas. I packed a lot of food into this lunch.

Container: EasyLunchBoxes

Left Side: Black bean quesadillas with black beans with onions sauteed in olive oil, with tomato sauce, and some hot sauce and Mexican cheese blend

Top Right: Salad with carrot and radish

Bottom Right: Watermelon

Nutella and Salsa in Mini Dippers

In plastic bag: Homemade cinnamon tortilla chips

My nephews enjoyed these lunches. I made these lunches easier but using some of the same ingredients (cinnamon tortilla chips, Nutella, lettuce, Mexican cheese blend, black beans, and watermelon). But I think that they are different enough that the same person could enjoy these meals two days in a row.
