·         500 gm Skinless chicken fillet, cut into small cubes
·         120 gm Red onion, sliced thinly
·         150 gm Zucchini, chopped into small cubes
·         2 tbsp Cajun spice
·         1 tsp Ground turmeric
·         2 tbsp Cooking oil
·         Salt to taste

Dinosaur Quesadillas
·         4 Mission 6-Grain Wraps
·         1 cup shredded Mozarella or Cheddar cheese
·         A small amount of softened butter

Flower Garden
·         3 pcs of green lettuce
·         A handful of fresh edible flowers
·         Grapes

Dinosaur Egg Nest
·         A handful of Mission Garlic & Butter Tortilla Chips
·         A handful of Mixed nuts
·         1 small Hard boiled egg
·         1 small piece of beet root, shredded and juice squeezed out

To make Chicken Cheese Filling
1.      Marinate the chicken fillet with the Cajun spice, ground turmeric and a dash of salt. Set aside for at least 15 minutes.
2.      Heat the cooking oil and sauté the sliced onions until translucent.
3.      Toss in the chopped zucchini and sauté for another 4 minutes.
4.      Add in the marinated chicken and cook for about 8 minutes until cooked through.
5.      Taste and add more salt, only if needed. 
Note: Filling stores well in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days

To make Dinosaur Quesadillas
1.      Use a dinosaur cookie cutter and press into Mission 6-Grain Wraps to create four pieces of dinosaur-shaped wraps.
2.      Lightly spread softened butter on the outer side of the dinosaur-shaped wraps.
3.      Top a shaped wrap with the Chicken Cheese Filling evenly before adding some shredded cheese.
4.      Top with another piece of dinosaur wrap.
5.      Heat the dinosaur quesadillas on a flat non-stick pan until the cheese melts and the wrap is a nice golden brown. Do the same with the other side of the quesadillas.
6.      Break off triangular ends of Mission Garlic & Butter Chips and place them between the two wraps to make spikes for the dinosaur quesadillas.

To assemble the Mission Dinosaur Quesadillas Bento Box
1.      Place the lettuce in a bento box and sprinkle the edible flowers before placing the two dinosaur quesadillas on top.
2.      To create the dinosaur egg, use a little paintbrush to dot the hard boiled eggs with beet root juice.
3.      Place the egg on some Mission Garlic & Butter Chips in a smaller container, topped with mixed nuts to create the Dinosaur Egg Nest.
4.      Add in some grapes or your choice of fruits for a sweet dessert for your Mission Dinosaur Quesadillas Bento.
