Thin to desired consistency by adding hot water and/or lime juice by the teaspoonful.

Pulse again and taste for consistency and flavor.

 

*Yes, chili powder. Sounds crazy but babies are open to all sorts of flavors. Exposing them to a variety of spices and flavors at a young age makes new foods less scary and more likely to be eaten later on.

 

Variations:

  • -Mix in chili powder and/or a tiny pinch of salt
  • -Mix in cooked quinoa or couscous for added texture
  • -Mix in full-fat Greek yogurt or ricotta cheese for added protein
  • -Mix in all of the above
