"mexican dinner" homemade baby food

Tonight for dinner I made Sage his very own Mexican Dinner baby food! At 8 months he can eat beans and soft cheese, so after doing some brainstorming like a true teacher, I decided on a Mexican food themed baby food.  

Mexican Dinner baby food
- 1 package dried black beans
- 1/2 avocado, cubed
- 3 slices soft pasteurized cheese
- 1/2 cup water

Soak and cook the beans according to the directions on the package. Combine the beans, avocado and cheese into a food processor. Before blending, add 1/2 cup water, and blend until desired consistency is reached. 

The dinner was a hit! The dried beans made MORE than enough beans for several batches of baby food, and I could add some to my salad. The food was a hit! We finished the dinner and Sage had an applesauce for dessert.

Great dinner for a growing little!
