Kid Chef Party Bean Salsa


Kids love the crispy crunch and zesty goodness of chips and salsa. When kids grow an organic veggie garden on their patio, they can harvest lots of fresh juicy tomatoes and herbs. The night before the party, kid chefs can soak ½ cup organic black beans in a pot. The next day, strain the water, rinse the beans, and simmer for 50 minutes. Kids can chop 1 cup organic tomatoes, ¼ cup organic red onion, 1 clove garlic, ¼ cup organic bell pepper, 1 deseeded organic chili pepper, basil leaves, and chives. Strain the cooked beans and add them to the tomato mixture. Add ½ tsp sea salt and mix for a snack high in protein and nutrients. Kids can cut organic whole wheat, rice, or corn tortillas like a pizza into chips, place them on parchment paper in a baking tray, sprinkle with organic extra virgin olive oil and sea salt, and bake them in the oven at 350 degrees for 8 minutes to make crispy crunchy chips to go with the Party Bean Salsa.
