My Little Chefs have been desperately wanting to make their own recipes! We came up with the idea to make Dessert Quesadillas. Somehow it turned into we are doing Chopped at our home and the secret ingredient is tortillas. They wanted me to get out ingredients and then call them into the kitchen to amaze them with their choices. Little Chef C even wanted me to put them under a box!
They were each overly excited to make their own and taste everyone’s recipes. We decided to grill the tortillas wrapped in foil because if the filling oozes out it will be captured and not dirty the grill. Little Chefs C and D covered half of their tortilla with their favorite ingredient combination.
Little Chef A decided she wanted to make a Dessert Tostada. She curled up the edges a bit to prevent the chocolate from spilling off and onto the foil. She wanted to make her own strawberry jam so she took some freshly cut strawberries and tried smashing them in a bowl because they were not cut small enough. She wanted to melt some white chocolate and mix it with the strawberries. We decided that was an unneeded step because the chocolate would melt on the grill. She had a very particular pattern she was making!
Here are their final products prior to wrapping and grilling. They are SO proud!
Even with the Dessert Quesadilla they all fit on the grill!
After a few minutes we took them off and took a bite!
The Little Chef had a GREAT time making these. It is quick and easy to make and to clean up. A few things we learned;
- making foil packets is an absolute must if you don’t want a messy clean up.
- too much chocolate oozes out either during the grilling or when you bite into it!
- flip the foil packets, so the tortilla is cooked on both sides.
- it IS necessary to taste everyone’s creations…they love having other tasters!
- use your favorite ingredients or try something new!
