Concession Stand Snacks

8-Layer Healthy California Nachos


 6 medium-size whole wheat tortillas
Sunflower oil or olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 (10-oz) bag of frozen corn, defrosted and pat dried
1 can of black beans, rinsed
1 pint of grape/cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 small red onion, finely chopped
A big handful fresh cilantro, rinsed and roughly chopped
Juice from 1 lime, divided
1 ripe avocado
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/2 cup feta or cojita cheese
Small can of pickled jalapeƱo slices (optional)


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 325°F. 
  2. Cut each tortilla into 8 wedges. Place wedges in a bowl and drizzle with sunflower oil, enough to just lightly coat each wedge.
  3. Sprinkle the wedges with a little salt and pepper and toss to coat evenly. Place the wedges in a single-layer on a baking sheet and place in the oven to bake for a total of 8 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  4. Raise the heat of the oven to 375°F. 
  5. Place the corn in the same bowl you used for the tortillas and toss with a drizzle of the sunflower oil to lightly coat, add salt and pepper to season. Scoop the corn in a single layer on the same baking sheet as you used for the tortillas wedges and roast the corn for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned, tossing halfway through. 
  6. In a small sauce pan add 1 tsp of the sunflower oil and warm over medium heat. Add the beans and stir until the beans are warmed through and begin to break down a bit. Smash them a bit with a wooden spoon. Season with salt and pepper and then lower the heat to low and keep warm.
  7. To make the salsa: Combine the quartered tomatoes with the red onions, cilantro, half of the lime juice, 1 tablespoon of sunflower or olive oil and salt and pepper. 
  8. Halve the avocado, remove pit, place in a bowl with remaining lime juice. Smash roughly with a fork,  
  9. Spread each chip wedge with a bit of yogurt, and then top with a spoonful of the corn, beans, tomato-salsa, smashed avocado
Snow Cones

1 cup 100% fruit juice
1/2 to 1 cup sugar, depending on tartness of juice
Ice, shaved in a blender, food processor, or snow cone maker

1. In a small pot, combine fruit juice and sugar.
2. Set pot over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.
3. Turn to low and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring until sugar dissolves.
4. Pour syrup into a jar and cool completely, refrigerating for several hours before making snow cones.
5. To make snow cone, mound shaved ice in a snow cone cup or bowl. Pour syrup over ice, to taste.
