I don't normally do prepackaged anything. (Whole wheat noodles, peanut butter, jelly, tortillas are a few exceptions)
I would just teach her your recipe. She has to learn at some point and if she gets married her partner will thank you.

I'm going to differ from everyone else. I'm a former Chef so I suggest teaching from scratch. It will mean much more to her in the long run and it will familiarize her with more ingredients, how to prep them, and even culinary terms. My oldest just learned how to make pate a choux over the weekend and my youngest learned how to make Brazilian black bean stew. By cutting corners, she is not really going to learn anything..she will learn how to open a can and throw it in a pot...By using a scratch recipe, she will so much more.

I'm a chef and I couldn't agree more! You never know, you may have the next Gordon Ramsey.

I think I'd let her do the quick version first, then a week later let her do the advanced version. Doing the easy version first would encourage her, but doing the more difficult version first could discourage her.

I mean, why not teach her the longer way? Itís a good opportunity to learn the basics of a lot of things-prepping and chopping veggies, measuring ingredients etc.

I'd teach her the better way.

I never taught my kids shortcuts.  They learned the best way not the quickest.  I personally think food from a can tastes gross.

I would much rather take the opportunity to teach her how to actually cook than to put canned stuff together.

This. Her dd is wanting to learn.
