Amazing Avocado Cornmeal Puerto Rican Stuffed “Sorullitos” Kid-Made Avocado Cilantro Salsa + Iced Hibiscus Tea Splash
When it comes to choosing recipes to write for our Sticky Fingers Coooking classes, we ask ourselves these things: What’s going to be different, fun, and give the kids the greatest chance at innovation and exposure to a variety of ingredients in our short, 1-hour after school classes? We also think about you, our wonderful familes, and that we hope you’ll love to recreate our recipes at home with your children.
We all love to use our hands when learning. How can we get kids involved in every step of the recipe? This week’s recipes offer exactly that: they’ll be getting their hands a bit "sticky" this week when they shape their very own Stuffed Sorullitos (Pronunciation: “Soh-roo-YEE-Toes”) - a Puerto Rican corn fritter typically shaped like a torpedo - ours will be either flattened and pan-fried. We encourage you to make your own Avocado-Cilantro salsa however you choose to, using a bunch of yummy, fresh, and healthy ingredients with a few suggestion.
What’s it like to be a kid in Puerto Rico? Here are a few fun facts to share with your students: Kids in Puerto Rico can play outside all-year round, and when school lets out, kids of all ages visit street vendors to buy Sorullitos as an after-school treat! We hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do and enjoy your trip to Puerto Rico!
