Learning Benefits

Heat things up with a little south-of-the-border flavor. You'll need to do most of the chopping, but kids can dish out the salsa to spice up meals and snacks.

What you need:

  • 2 ripe tomatoes
  • 1 ripe kiwi
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 green pepper
  • 1 stalk of celery
  • 1/2 jalapeno (minced)
  • handful of minced cilantro (optional)
  • small can of black beans (drained)
  • salt to taste

What to do:

  1. Wash and dry all the vegetables.
  2. Chop the tomatoes, kiwi, onion, and pepper into very fine cubes.
  3. Mix in the remaining ingredients.

Use to top quesadillas, tacos, chips, potatoes, and pretzels.
