Healthy Kid Nachos


Kid Chefs can make a fun meal for the next Taco Night. Kids can cook organic black beans from scratch and fill the house with delicious smells by soaking ½ cup beans overnight, rinse well the next morning, return to the pot with new water, and bring to a boil. Strain and rinse the beans again to make them easy to digest. Add 1½ cup water, bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes. Using all organic ingredients, add ½ chopped red pepper, 2 chopped slices of red onion, 1 minced garlic clove, and 1 minced red chili and simmer 30 more minutes. Season the beans with ½ tsp sea salt and ¼ tsp cumin. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Kids can make a dip by mashing a ripe organic avocado. Using all organic ingredients, add ½ cup sour cream, 1 chopped medium tomato, 1 thinly sliced green onion, ¼ tsp sea salt, and ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves. Cover a baking sheet with layer of organic corn tortilla chips. Kids can cover the chips with black beans, top with grated organic pepper jack cheese, and bake for 10 minutes. Top with the avocado dip and garnish with cilantro to serve four.
