Brought to you by got milk? Food Loves Milk
Living in California my whole life Mexican food has very much been a part of my life. Now that I’m older with a family of my own our girls are also growing up with the same dishes that I loved growing up. One of my favorite dishes is Chilaquiles. The chips, and spice and smooth creama on top, it’s just one of my favorite Mexican dishes and now I hope to inspire my girls to enjoy the same things that I did as a kid.
One thing I always had with meals growing up was milk. There’s nothing like a cold glass of milk and it’s just another way that I make sure my girls stay healthy and strong. With our large family in our house there are some favorites when it comes to meals. I always know to have plenty of milk and cereal on hand.
Except this week I wanted to have a little fun with my girls. Our youngest loves cereal and milk, so I wanted to let her help me create a fun recipe that’s perfect for eating a night. Night cereal, a delicious new way to discover flavors and of course enjoy with cold milk. So with her leading the way we let the kids takeover the kitchen and create a dinner inspired night cereal recipe. They decided to remake one of their favorite savory dinner meals, Chilaquiles.
Night Cereal: Chilaquiles Style
- 1 cup of cold milk
- 1 cup of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/4 cup of black beans
- 1 TSP crushed red pepper
- 2 TSP cilantro
This recipe is so simple and delicious easily. It’s flavorful because it has a little spice and it’s slightly sweet because the milk really adds the smooth finish at the end. All of the flavors mix togethers really well, and our girls easily related it to one of our favorites dishes, Chilaquiles. Just add the milk!
Food loves milk and the milk is what brings this dish together. It’s really the perfect night cereal and a simple way to enjoy all of our favorite flavors. I want to teach my girls to not be afraid and to try new things. I really think this is a unique take on cereal and there are so many different ways you can enjoy cereal and milk. Every bite has flavor and texture and the milk is the best addition to the heat from the crushed red pepper. Our kiddos felt like their culinary creation was a success and it is a fun way to get them excited about trying new flavors and ingredients.
I’d say we had a lot of fun reimagining the ordinary bowl of milk and cereal, and I really think our girls had fun coming up and trying these flavors together. The milk really was the highlight too!
