Who doesn't like Mexican? Its simple food, but somehow the flavors are so vibrant and delicious. I was also shocked at how gorgeous the finished product looked.
This is a beginner version for using peppers which have tons of beta carotene and vitamin C. With the remaining bell pepper, I cut it into cubes for Kenya to eat as finger food. You could add a little chili powder to add spice, but I didn't want it to over power the other flavors, so instead I added the fresh cilantro.
I let Kenya press the button on the food processor and he was chatting away, begging to scoop it out and let him try a bite. This one is a total hit with babies.

    Do you put the chicken, bell pepper, cheese, tomato,cilantro and the brown rice in the food processor? You serve it as baby food? I don’t see the final picture.

    What if I don’t have a steamer pot? What can I do?

      Put a very small amount of water in the pot, about 1 inch high and place the ingredients in so they can steam and cook :)
