Cooking With Kids ~ Salsa and Chips

Hello!  Welcome back to another edition of
Cooking With Kids.
Where I use my own children as test subjects for my Mini Chefs program.

Today we’re making salsa and tortilla chips.


We used:
1 pepper
3-4 roma tomatoes
1/2 white onion
1 celery stalk
1 large carrot
1 Tbsp chopped cilantro
1/4 – 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar
1 can tomato paste


Isaiah helped chop things up using my Pampered Chef chopper.  I would consider cooking the vegetables before chopping.  It was hard for the kids to cut through the raw veggies.


Here’s our chopped carrot.

I mixed everything together in a pot and simmered for about 45 minutes.

Looking good.

The boys helped to poor the salsa into their own, individual jars.
I also had them cut out shapes from tortillas using cookie cutters.  Then I quickly baked the shapes in the oven.

Here’s our finished snack.
This was a fun one.  You should try it!

    Fabulous cooking lesson! That is so awesome…I believe cooking is a life skill and I try to teach my kids often too. My daughter is 14 now and she can make & bake almost anything. My son is 10 and he can make grilled cheese and omelets! Have a wonderful Sunday! Angie xo
