This was another lunch box idea that went over really well with the boys. They could have turned out better, but for my first attempt I was just pleased that the boys liked them as much as they did. Next time I will probably make the pies smaller and use something other than canned biscuits. Make the night ahead and refrigerate. Pack them into a lunch box the next day and you’re good to go. Serve these with extra salsa and/or sour cream on the side.
