Cooking with Kids - Cinco De Mayo

Sorry no photos this time! On Monday Kyler and I did another free cooking class at OMHS. This time the food was Cinco De Mayo or Mexican themed. We are having the dessert Nachos for dinner tonight. I might take a picture of those when we have them plated...

15 ounce can fat free refried beans
1 cup mild salsa
1 bag bowl-shaped tortilla chips
8 ounces ground turkey, cooked
8 ounces grated low fat cheese
diced tomatoes, sliced green onions, olives, cilantro, and/or sour cream for garnish, if desired

Stir beans and salsa together in a medium bowl. Microwave until warmed through. Arrange tortilla chips on a platter. Put a teaspoon or two of the bean mixture in each chip. Top with cooked turkey, grated cheese, and any toppings. Serve immediately.

4 whole wheat tortillas
1 can mild enchilada sauce
8 ounces grated cheese
1 cup shredded chicken
Sliced green onions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Arrange tortillas on a large baking sheet and coat lightly with nonstick spray. Bake until crisp, about 10 minutes. Carefully spread each tortilla with a thin layer of enchilada sauce. Divide cheese and chicken evenly among tortillas. Drizzle with additional enchilada sauce, if desired. Sprinkle with green onions. Bake until cheese is melted, about 5-10 minutes. Cut into fourths and serve immediately.

2 avocados, peeled and pitted
2 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 green onion, thinly sliced
¼ cup chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon lime juice
12 small white corn tortillas
8 ounces grated low fat cheese

Mash avocados in a medium bowl with a fork. Stir in tomatoes, green onion, cilantro, and lime juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick pan over medium heat, arrange 3 tortillas in a single layer (or do one at a time in a smaller pan). Top with cheese and another tortilla. When bottom tortilla begins to brown and cheese starts to melt, flip over. Cook until remaining tortilla is browned in spots and cheese is completely melted. Cut into fourths and serve immediately with guacamole.

4 tablespoons butter, room temperature
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 whole wheat tortillas
1 pound strawberries, hulled and diced
Fat free whipped topping

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix together butter, cinnamon, and sugar in a small bowl. Spread tortillas on one side with butter mixture. Cut each tortilla into 12 triangles (like a pizza). Place tortilla wedges in a single layer, butter side up, on a baking sheet. Bake until crisp and golden, about 10 minutes. Let cool slightly. Place several cinnamon-sugar chips in a small bowl. Top with diced strawberries and a dollop of whipped topping.
