Celebrating Cinco de Mayo!

Cinco de Mayo is a celebration to commemorate the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla. Although it is not a day to celebrate Mexico’s independence, you and your kids can show your spirit by partaking in some festive Quesadillas from the Handstand Kids Mexican Cookbook.

Ingredients

4 8 or 10-inch flour tortillas

2 cups shredded Monterey Jack or Mexican blend cheese (queso)

½ cup salsa

½ cup guacamole (optional)

¼ cup sour cream (optional)

1 cup cooked veggies (pick the ones you like, including onion, mushrooms, bell peppers)

 

Tools

Knife

Large nonstick skillet

Measuring cups

Spatula

 

Instructions

  1. Place the tortillas flat and sprinkle ½ cup queso and ½ cup cooked veggies on half of each.
  2. Fold the tortillas in half to cover the queso.
  3. Place the tortillas in the large skillet and cook over a medium-high heat until one side is lightly browned (about 2 to 3 minutes).
  4. Use the spatula to flip the tortillas and cook the other side until lightly browned and the queso has melted. Remove from heat.
  5. Cut into triangles and serve with salsa, guacamole and sour cream.

Enjoy!!
