October is here, and Halloween will soon be as well. Some parents think they have to spend a lot of money to make holidays special for their children. We disagree! We believe you can make every holiday special in simple, inexpensive ways. Why not make this month extra special for your children with fun, inexpensive Halloween-themed food! Today, we have a recipe for spooky Halloween Burritos! They are cute (in a scary way, of course), tasty, and so easy to make. Your kids can help, or you can let them create their own Frankenstein faces!
Halloween Burritos Ingredients:
- 8 10-inch spinach tortillas
- 1 14 1/2-ounce can of diced tomatoes (be sure to drain the liquid)
- 1 15-ounce can of corn
- 2 cups of cooked chicken cut into small cubes
- 1 packet of Spanish rice mix
- Blue corn chips
- Sour cream
- Shredded cheese
- Cubed cheese
- Slice red pepper
Halloween Burritos Directions:
In a large saucepan, cook your Spanish rice according to the directions on the package. Once the rice has cooked, add in your cubes of chicken, canned corn, and diced tomatoes. Stir is gently until all of the ingredients have warmed up. Then, place approximately 2/3 cup of the mixture on one of your spinach tortillas. Fold the bottom, top, and the sides of the burrito together and roll it up. To create your Frankenstein face, take 3 blue chips and place them at the top of the folded burrito pointing downward. These will be Frankenstein’s hair. Use 2 pieces of shredded cheese as Frankenstein’s eyebrows. You can point them inward to look angry, or use one piece of shredded cheese to look like a uni-brow! Take your red peppers and cut them into small squares. These can be Frankenstein’s eyes. You could also cut an olive in half and use those as eyes. For Frankenstein’s mouth, you can either use cheese or a thinly sliced piece of red pepper. For Frankenstein’s neck bolts, use cheese cubes on either side of his head.
