Cinco de Mayo Mexican Dinner

My boys loved our Cinco de Mayo Breakfast so much that we used our same idea to make this fun Cinco de Mayo Mexican Dinner! This was so much fun to make and they really loved it!

Cinco de Mayo Mexican Dinner

2 Whole Wheat Tortillas
Shredded Cheese
Black Beans
Yellow Mexican Rice
Sour Cream

We cut around the edges of the tortillas into a smaller circle and saved the scraps to make the face details. Sprinkle cheese in between the two tortillas and microwave for 1 minute. We made yellow rice and then placed it on top for the sombrero. We used sour cream for the eyes. We used cooked black beans for the hair, eye brows, pupils, & mustache. We cut out the nose, eye lids, lips, & ears using kitchen scissors from the tortilla scraps. We cut a few strips from a tomato to decorate the sombrero.

Here are my 2 youngest amigos with their Cinco de Mayo Quesadilla!
