What a great time the kids had this week learning to cook at our momstown Milton Junior Chef program! Our salsa and chicken quesadilla creations were a huge hit. Not only did the kids enjoy eating the food they made with their own hands, the moms were reminded of an easy, nutritious and tasty meal option.
We started on the salsa. We learned about two kinds of salsa – salsa fresca, made with fresh tomatoes, and salsa roja – salsa made with cooked tomatoes. We were making salsa roja and our recipe called for fire roasted canned tomatoes.
Quesadillas are a quick and versatile meal option for our little ones. Tortillas can be kept frozen so that they are always on hand, and defrosted in a matter of minutes. Similar to the idea of a personal pizza, it is a meal option that can be tailored to individual tastes – great for picky eaters!
We would love to have you join us for our Jr. Chef Program next month. A fun way for kiddies to learn measurements and practice mixing and chopping!
