Ibex Quesadilla and Craft!

Over at Little Nummies (a fun food blog I contribute to), we’ve been working our way through the animal kingdom alphabetically with an emphasis on unusual animals. I had a lot of fun creating a snack and craft for the Ibex!


An ibex is a type of mountain goat with huge horns!

I was pretty excited when I thought of the Ibex hat idea. I think it’s cute, and it’s really simple!




Put cheese on tortilla and fold in half. Microwave 30 seconds. Fold tortilla over again (so it’s in quarters).

Cut horns using a bowl as a template. Place bowl over tortilla and cut around it.

Cut remaining tortilla as shown below. Arrange on plate.

Place olive pieces for eyes, nose, and mouth.
