Living in Seattle, football is kind of a big deal. On any given Friday before a game, it’s not uncommon to see nearly everyone decked in team gear, even the kids.
We like to watch the game from our home, cozied up on the couch, or sometimes jumping up and down as a family.
Now, while our team ISN’T playing in the big game, it doesn’t mean we won’t be enjoying these easy kid snacks!
Family time means snacks and we really like to have kid friendly foods that are not only delicious but foods kids can help make too!
Salsa is probably one of my six year old daughter’s favorite snacks. She may even consider it food group. It’s not uncommon for her to devour half a bowl of it while watching movies or games. It’s actually time for her own bowl. One of the great things about fresh salsa is you just can’t beat the taste. One of our favorites is Fresh Cravings Restaurant Style salsa – you can find it in the refrigerated Produce department at Walmart.
What makes Fresh Cravings Restaurant Style salsa so delicious to our family? It’s made with locally sourced tomatoes (California) and made in small batches. It’s never cooked, so you get that tangy bite you don’t get with jarred salsa that’s been sitting on the shelves, plus it’s less expensive!] It’s pretty clear why Quincy loves it so much!
Now, I confess, we eat a lot of store bought chips with our fresh salsa, but remember, I’ve been getting Quincy excited about being in the kitchen. Making tortilla chips is EASY and while they are mighty tasty fried, Quincy and I make them in the oven. (Don’t worry, I do all the oven work!)
Kids can help by cutting out the tortilla chips with cookie cutters or wedges, because how fun are jersey and football shaped chips? A responsible adult should put them in and pull them out of the oven.
Kid Friendly Snacks: Oven baked tortilla chips and Salsa
Corn tortillas – each tortilla will make 6 chips, 12 tortillas will yield 72 chips, assuming you cut them in wedges.
Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Cut the tortillas into wedges, or use cookie cutters to cut out fun shapes.
Spread the tortilla wedges out on a baking sheet in a single layer and sprinkle with salt.
Bake the tortillas for about 6 minutes, then use tongs to turn the chips over. Sprinkle with a little more salt, and bake for another 6 to 9 minutes, be careful not to let them get too brown.
Remove from the oven and let cool. Sprinkle with more salt and serve with Fresh Cravings Restaurant Style Salsa.
Tasty fresh salsa, homemade chips – the perfect kid friendly snack for watching football games!
