Adios Soggy Sandwich! 6 Delish Latin School Lunches
The leaves are falling, the books are piling up, and the smell of crayons is in the air – it’s time for back to school! To make the year a success, send your little one off with a backpack full of supplies and a lunch box full of delicious, easy-to-make Latin meals. From sliders to take-to-school taco bars, these lunches will make your kid the talk of the lunch room and you parent of the year.
Mini Chorizo and Black Bean Cream Burritos will be the star of any lunch box! These morsels are full of chorizo, tangy sour cream, savory black beans, fresh cilantro, zesty garlic, and salty cotija cheese stuffed in a warm flour tortilla. They’re the perfect size for kids with big appetites.
These Cuban-inspired sliders are a fun alternative to the standard issue burger and the perfect size for tiny hands. Dress them up or down depending on your kiddo’s preference or pack the toppings on the side and let them pile them on!
Who doesn’t love baked potatoes? Wrap these up for the kid’s lunch and your little one will be the talk of the lunchroom. No one needs to know the real secret: these delicious, cheesy skins are easy to make! For a healthier swap, use sweet potatoes; for vegetarian versions top with mushroom or soy sausage.
Chorizo cooking on the stove is one of the most delectable aromas we know. The tang of vinegar, garlic and chile wafts through the kitchen, bringing hungry kids, laser beam eyes focused on the sizzling skillet, casually asking “Um…are those for lunch?”
