Since my kids are familiar with the taco, we started with that premise. What else can we do with a tortilla? Quesadillas are a quick, easy favorite. But, what else lies in the pantry, produce aisle and spice rack?
Getting my kids to eat vegetables was a first a struggle. I found that my son loved salsa. Salsa, when made fresh, can be a great source of vegetables. Combining tomatoes, onions, peppers and spices is simple and easy. I found that my son would eat more variety if I paired the dish with salsa.
We started with traditional salsas on top of a quesadilla. We have since expanded to spicy, jalapeno salsas to tangy verde salsa, he was more open to flavors, consistencies and ingredients.
While I love that my son is more daring with flavors, more importantly my son enjoys cooking with me. From chopping the veggies to measuring the ingredients, this time in the kitchen is time to share our love of food. Since my son is vested in the food he cooks, we have opened even more avenues of food, flavors, and cuisines.
