School season is officially going to start in about 3.5 weeks and I am in the process of getting organized! This year, will be somewhat more challenging because I have two kids starting school and will also have an infant to throw into the mix. School shopping is almost done but my next solution to solve is figuring out foods I can serve when they come home ravenous. I need quick snacks that will fill their bellies and fun snacks  that will encourage them to eat. Hayley is also in dance company this year and will have around 7 dance classes a week, which means we are always going to be on the go. I need great snack ideas for her to take with her in the car and on the go, to get from one class to the next. It is going to be crazy busy and I need some great snack recipes.  For this, I turn to two of my favorite foods that I grew up with- Bagel Bites and Delimex. While I absolutely love these foods just the way they are out of the packaging and into the oven, I thought I might add create some yummy Mexican Bagel Bites that will provide Zane and Hayley with great After school snacks, that would be easy to make and would be delicious! Both are also made with real and high quality ingredients.

To start off my journey to creating great snack recipes, I headed to my local Walmart to purchase Bagel Bites and Delimex. I found the Bagel Bites and Delimex readily in the frozen food section. They had so many delicious flavors of Bagel Bites and Delimex, but for my recipe, I purchased the Three Cheese Bagel Bites and Delimex Beef and Cheddar Rolled Tacos. You can find a great coupon to purchase both of these wonderful products here: Bagel Bites and Delimex. I then headed to get some other ingredient necessities such as avocado, lettuce, and meat. I was so excited to go home to try out my recipe and see how it would turn out!

When I got home, I got together all my ingredients for my Mexican Bagel Bites but not before Hayley begged me to try out the Bagel Bites and Delimex. While I grew up having Bagel Bites always stored in my freezer, I honestly forgot about them until I visited Walmart and saw them. Now, I am pretty sure we are always going to stock our freezer with these! After all, Bagel Bites are made with real cheese and homemade sauce with 0 gram trans fat.  Kid approved and Mommy approved- What could be better?!DSC 0751 The Perfect and Easy After School Snacks Mexican Bagel Bites Recipe!

    I like the taquito’s – they are like a guilty pleasure for me! I haven’t tried the bagel bites. I like the idea of chopping up fresh veggies and adding them to the original. I have so many ideas running through my mind!

  2. says

    This sounds interesting and looks delicious! We love bagel bits and in the beginning of this pregnancy I actually craved those Delimex Rolled Tacos!

  3. Ann BAcciaglia says

    What a creative way to jazz up Bagel Bites. I love your creativity and these look so good. I am hungry and could eat one right now for a snack.

    My son is addicted to the taquittos. My gram buys them for him all the time, I do not buy them at home. We do make homemade ones though!
