Cooking with Kids: Festive Ground Turkey and ‘Black Bean Fiesta’ Nachos
Positioned somewhere between the edge of the produce section nearby the olive bar, I spotted them out of the corner of my eye. Red and Green Mexican tortilla chips. Hmm.
An immediate brain crunch ensued for experience has shown that possessing an enthusiastic interest in trying new food products it would be mere seconds before my grandson, the J-Dude, would be asking if we could get those bright red and green Mexican tortilla chips.
Being a little savvier nearing ten years old, instead of asking for the chips, he quickly suggested that we might use these for ‘Christmas Nachos.’ No self-respecting, admiring, Grandmom would turn down such a clever idea.
With so few ingredients, today’s recipe is great for Cooking with Kids: Festive Ground Turkey and Black Bean Fiesta Nachos, nice for the bigger kids in your life too.
It worked out rather nicely that the Bush’s Grillin’ Beans even had ‘Fiesta’ in the name, a perfect tie in for the season. The added chilies provide an extra bite.
Readied for sharing on a Friday afternoon after school I set the camera for a quick photo shoot before the whirlwind. But once the buddies arrived, there went the Nachos, and, my photo shoot with the Dude displaying his tray of brightly colored ‘Christmas Nachos.’ Ah well. These are the sorts of little things I don’t worry about these days having developed an easier go on the flow, which seems to magically happen when in the role of any self- respecting, admiring, Grandmom.
