Enchilada Experience!

Blog post written by the children in Year 5/6: Emilia, Willow, Seb, George, Evie and Radu


On Monday 16th January, the children tasted enchiladas made by the TA’s of year 5/6.

Thoughts from the children when tasting the enchiladas:

'I don’t like it because I don’t like the spice.'
'I like it because it was spicy.'
'I loved it because of the crunchy wrap and the spice mix.'


The children were able to choose from a range of different ingredients and spices to create their enchilada recipe.


  • Green pepper

  • Yellow pepper

  • Onion

  • Sweetcorn

  • Carrots

  • Lentils

  • Mushroom

  • Tortilla wrap

  • Grated cheese

When choosing the spices, the children were able to smell and taste a variety of spices to create their desired flavour.

Spice mix:

  • Chilli

  • Paprika

  • Brown sugar

  • Salt and pepper

  • Basil

  • Oregano

  • Cumin

  • Tumeric


The children really enjoyed preparing the ingredients and cooking their enchiladas. Everyone was much happier with the flavours!

Find below a variety of photos including the children and enchiladas:


Here are a few of the children’s evaluations:

I think the spice mix went well, but next time I think I will add more spice.
I think it tasted lovely because of the sauce and vegetables. Next time, I would put a little bit less sauce.
I wanted to add more spice to make it spicier next time.
I would add more chilli because we could not really taste any spice when we made it.
