meal-idea-kids

Celebrar la Victoria! Today marks the 152nd anniversary of Cinco De Mayo and we’re sharing a tasty meal idea for kids to help celebrate! Here’s more from our friends at Super Healthy Kids:

Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate than with Mexican Inspired Food!   One go-to website that always has amazing ideas for healthy celebrations is ProduceForKids.org.  They were the inspiration for a delicious fruit cake I posted way back.  Today, they are the inspiration for our mini Beany Cheese-tada’s! We made them mini, simply by cutting our corn tortillas in small circles.

Ingredients:
  • 2 medium (6-inch) corn tortillas
  • ½ cup mashed pinto beans (drain if using canned)
  • 2 oz. grated Monterey Jack cheese
  • ½ cup shredded Romaine lettuce
  • ½ cup grape tomatoes, cut in halves
Directions:

Toast tortilla shells to desired crispiness. Spread heated mashed beans equally on top of the tortillas. Spread half of lettuce, cheese, tomatoes and salsa on each.
