April 30 is the day Mexican's celebrate the day of the child or Dia Del Niño. We always celebrate Mother's Day and Father's Day so it great to be able to celebrate children's day too. I love to celebrate with my daughter on every holiday so we decided to make an easy Mexican recipe to go along with the theme.
I wanted to make something simple, fast and toddler friendly so I took out my pressure, some beef, cheese and of course my favorite salsa from Herdez. All I did was throw in some beef chunks, a jar of the HERDEZ® Salsa Casera, sealed up the pressure cooker and set it to cook on high pressure for 20 minutes. While it was cooking on high pressure my daughter helped me tear some cilantro while I shredded the cheese and cut up the tomatoes.
After the 20 minutes were up I left the pressure naturally escape for 20 minutes. Then I drained out all of the meat and mixed in some of the torn cilantro. To assemble the quesadillas I added some of the beef with the torn cilantro and a squeeze of lime to half of a tortilla. Then I topped it with lots of cheese and folded it in half. I added a little bit of coconut oil into a pan and placed the quesadilla in and toasted it on both sides until golden. I cut it into wedges and served it to my toddler. She loves cheese so it was a hit!
I love that the HERDEZ® Brand is family friendly and authentic in food, their tradition and culture. It was through their website that I learned of the Día Del Niño and I decided to celebrate it. Not only is it celebrating the complete joy of having children in our lives but also of our inner child. I decided to celebrate my inner child by adding some fresh tomatoes and extra HERDEZ® Salsa Casera to my quesadilla.
