I made the ones for this bento out of tortilla. I used my Jack-O-Lantern cookie cutter to cut the tortilla to pumpkin shapes and to create the faces. To the right side there is a string cheese upon which I used a marker to draw a ghost face on the outer wrapper. In the top left section there are some seedless green grapes and pineapple pieces shaped as pumpkins with a cute pick.
On the bottom left are some cinnamon tortilla chips. These baked cinnamon sugar tortilla chips are so delicious and really quite easy to make. I used a pumpkin shaped cookie cutter to cut out the tortillas to pumpkin shapes and then baked them in the oven. Scroll down for the recipe.
Cinnamon Sugar Flour Tortilla Chips Recipe (you can substitute spinach, whole wheat or any kind of tortillas according to your preference). You can also double up the recipe and alter the ingredients to your liking. My family loves cinnamon, thus I used a little extra here and in my other cooking much of the time.
- 4 flour tortillas (medium size)
- 4 tablespoon sugar
- 2.5 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3 tablespoon butter, melted
1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a bowl mix the sugar and cinnamon together.
3. Melt butter in a small bowl.
4. Using the cookie cutter, cut pumpkin shapes out of the tortilla.
5. Dip the cut pieces of tortilla in melted butter (shake off the excess), and coat with cinnamon sugar.
6. Place coated tortillas on the lined baking tray.
7. Bake for 10-15 minutes.
7. Remove from oven and let the chips fully cool.
This lunch was packed in a Planetbox Launch and I included a Lunchbox Love note in his lunch bag.
