Josie recently entered a contest to attend the Kids' State Dinner at the White House. The contest required its entrants to create an original recipe using healthy ingredients that include the five major food groups. The judges pick one winner from each state and those children get to attend a State Dinner where professional chefs cook and serve the winning recipes.
Josie made a homemade guacamole with granny smith apples, whole grain tortilla chips and spicy, black bean & vegetable quesadillas with a low-fat, vegetable sour cream.
She tried out the recipe for our dinner before she submitted it and I can attest that it was all delicious.
The homemade chips and guacamole were wonderful.
and the quesadilla (which were baked in the oven and made with whole grain tortillas) were amazing.
We submitted Josie's recipe on-line and we're hoping that she's the winner from Massachusetts. But she should be proud of her recipe either way.
