This recipe comes from my new recipe book for baby led weaning which is now available to order on Amazon.co.uk. You can have this amazing (if I do say so myself) book filled with 164 recipes in your hand in less than one month…..All you have to do is click this link and so many more tasty recipes await you!
The first recipe I am going to share are these amazing Taquitos which also happens to be one of my favourite photos from the book. When I lived in San Francisco, taquitos were one of my favourite fast-food dishes. They are like a very skinny burrito – a flour tortilla filled with beans, cheese and meat, then rolled and usually fried. We eat Mexican food every week, mostly burritos, so when thinking of how I could make them more baby friendly I immediately thought of my taquito days (sigh). They are not deep fried – instead I bake them for just long enough to hold the tortilla together, making them the least messy way ever to get your little one eating Mexican food.
I gave spices to my babies when they were all really little and I think it is a great way to introduce flavours to what sometimes can be bland baby meals. It made all of my little foodies very adventurous eaters with their favourite dishes being curries and Mexican food. You can leave out the chilli powder or just add 1/4 a teaspoon instead to start off. Its super mild anyway and my little ones never had any trouble with it.
If you have any thoughts or ideas on other recipes you would like to see then I’d love to hear from you. I’m doing my recipe planning for the year so all suggestions are welcome.
Enjoy your week.
