    preheat+chiffonade+tear Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Have your kids chiffonade the 1 cup fresh spinach leaves - roll a pile of leaves into a tub and slice across to make tiny ribbons. Add to a bowl. Next, tear up a small handful cilantro leaves (about 3 T) and add to the bowl.

    slice+measure+drain Have your kids slice 2 green onions into small pieces and add them to the bowl. Measure 1 C frozen, thawed corn, 2 T black beans, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp mild chili powder, tsp salt, and tsp black pepper, and add to the bowl, along with 1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes, drained.

    grate+mix Grate 6-10 oz cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese and add to the bowl (leave out for dairy-free version). Mix all of the ingredients in the bowl together until well combined.

    cut+brush+fill Using a round cookie cutter, a clean lid from a jar, a knife, or scissors (our favorite method!), cut 12 small corn or flour tortillas into circles that fit into the wells of a cupcake pan, leaving enough room for the tortilla circles to fill the sides of the wells (making little cups!). Brush oil on the cupcake pan wells and then place the tortillas in the wells and fill with black bean and veggie mixture. Sprinkle a little extra grated cheese on top, if you like!

  • The History of Enchiladas! The history of enchiladas goes back to pre-Colombian times, when the Mayas first invented the tortilla. In the time of the Aztecs, they would wrap tortillas around small fish or other bits of meat. There is also evidence that they would fry the tortillas in oil, then put them on a plate and pour salsa over the top, add cheese, then another tortilla, cheese, salsa and so on. They would them top the stacked enchilada with a fried egg and some lettuce. As the original Mexican street food, enchiladas were simply corn tortillas dipped in chili sauce and eaten without fillings.

    In 1885, the word enchilada first appeared in print, meaning chili-filled. We now stuff tortillas with cheese, shrimp, beef, pork, and the most famous of all, chicken enchiladas. We have taken something from the past and brought it through to the future!

    fun food facts:

    The surprise ingredient of the week is: Black Beans! Combine the creamy texture of black beans with a whole grain such as brown rice and you

    have a complete protein! Black beans also give a typical person more than 50 percent of their daily recommended values in fiber, folate, and manganese.

    Dried black beans are generally available in prepackaged containers as well as bulk bins; both canned and dried black beans are available throughout the year.

    Black beans and other beans, such as kidney and navy beans, are all known as common beans, probably owing to the fact that they derived from a common bean ancestor that originated in Peru. From there, beans were spread throughout South and Central America by migrating Indian trades. Beans were introduced into Europe in the 15th century by Spanish explorers returning from their voyages to the New World. Spanish and Portuguese traders brought them to Africa and Asia.

    As beans are a very inexpensive form of good protein, they have become popular in many cultures throughout the world. Black beans are the 2nd most highly consumed dried bean in the United States.

    Black beans have black skin, creamy white flesh, and a sweet, rich flavor sometimes compared to that of mushrooms. They are called turtle beans, French beans, black kidney beans, black Mexican beans, and Mexican beans.

    Beans were one of the first foods gathered, according to archeologists and they were domesticated over 8,000 years ago.

    Time for a laugh! Knock Knock! Whos there? Bean. Bean who? Its bean a while since I last had an enchilada!

    How do you describe a tortilla who tells bad jokes? Corny!
