Mexican Makeovers

preview

This was our menu for Mexican Makeovers which turned out to be a real “fiesta”. We started out class learning WHY we need to make healthier substitutions for traditional Mexican dishes or the ingredients used in those dishes. Then, everyone got hands-on experience learning HOW to  make three different types of healthy tortillas and some chips.

We are each going to make one of these cute, tasty taco shells.

Our Healthy Cooking Classes teach the basics. From there, class participants use their own creativity and imagination.  Roy adapted his own favorite recipe into a healthier version- “Roy Tamales”.                 Way to go Roy!

I can’t say we had a 100 % success in making tacos. But the good news is that even if they broke in half, they still made great, tasty dippers for sampling Queso and Guacamole. By the way, the Bean-Less Refried Beans seemed to be one of the favorite dishes. Everyone, myself included could not believe they were made with NO BEANS!

The end to a good meal were our healthy Chocolate Balls, made with raw ingredients. Did you know that 1/3 of your daily diet should be raw, uncooked foods?

We concluded our evening with the Mexican Hat Dance, Pinatas and lots of Hispanic music. Well, many no dancing and pinatas but we did have the music. OLE’

If you missed Mexican night, you can still sign up for Italian night, Feb 24th.
