Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons

Slithering Snake Burrito

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

We have mexican night once a week and we always love coming up with fun mexican themed food! My boys used to get upset when I bought spinach quesadillas. However, now they ask for them knowing that we will most likely make something fun out of them. We made Slithering Snake Burrito’s the other night and my boys thought that this was Ssssssso cool! These are also very easy to make!

Slithering Snake Burrito

1 Spinach Tortilla
Shredded Cheese
Beans (we used black & red)
Brown Rice
Sour Cream
1 Tomato Slice (or red bell pepper slice)

Take your spinach tortilla and cut it in half. We layered our beans, cheese, and rice on top (use what you like). Ours looked like this…

Take your tortilla half and roll it up starting from the long flat edge. Microwave the rolled burritos for 1-2 minutes. Take them out of the microwave and bend them just a bit in the middle. Place them on the plate to look like a snake. Push the end of one burrito in the end of the other burrito to connect them. Cut the back side end to a point and do the same for the front top end. Cut the sides of the top with kitchen scissors and flare the tortilla out a bit to look like a snake head. We cut a hand full of cooked red beans in half and made a V pattern on top of the snake. This covered up with seam.

We used sour cream for the eyes by placing it on with a spoon. We used black beans for the pupils. We cut a piece of a tomato for the tongue. You could also cut a piece of a red pepper.
