Nacho Stuffed Jack-O-Lanterns, THM S

More Halloween fun up ahead! My kids love burritos. There's something about toddlers and finger foods - they're made for one another. So, I wanted to do some things which the kids could enjoy (and actually eat) while being festive for the adults.

Enter jack-o-lanterns.

Now, I am not an artist. When I say that, I mean I'm doing pretty well to draw in a straight line. Really all you need for these cuties is a sharp paring knife. Don't worry about it being perfect, because you'll see the overall idea in the end instead of minute details.

My kids enjoyed this recipe wrapped up in a tortilla, and the adults were able to enjoy it as stuffed peppers. The recipe may stretch to 6 servings if you're serving little ones as well.

A few notes about this recipe: You'll notice I do not re-bake the peppers after stuffing them. For one, I wanted to save time, and another is I was afraid the mixture would ooze out of the holes in the peppers. Appropriate for Halloween, yes, but not very pretty to look at. You'll also notice that I measure the nacho seasoning in "palmfuls." A palmful equals roughly a tablespoon. I make this or other seasonings so often I just don't bother with the exact measurements anymore. Cooking is an experiment anyway, right? Have some fun with it. ;-)
