Red and Yellow Mush or Red Zebra Tomatoes?

I am already feeling challenged. Tomorrow's lunch menu is enchiladas, mixed vegetables and cantaloupe. The mixed vegetables and cantaloupe will be easy to mimic since I picked up a beautiful Vienna melon, sweet corn and carrots at the farmers' market on Saturday. But I've never made enchiladas before. Caroline's teacher said that since they chop up the enchiladas for the toddlers, I could just bring in anything that resembles red and yellow mush. I'll experiment with enchiladas this weekend but for tomorrow, I will pack Caroline's lunch with cubed Red Zebra tomatoes which are red with orange/yellow stripes.
