I have wanted to make a Grand Canyon bento for quite some time but it took some time for me to figure out what medium to use. Beans ended up being perfect!
The Grand Canyon is made with refried beans and mashed up black beans. The Colorado River is sour cream tinted blue with a little food coloring. The sky is broken up cheese curds. In the bottom box there is mild salsa with a cactus pick and blue corn tortilla chips.
