Holy Guacamole Baked Appetizers

Holy Guacamole Baked Appetizers

 Happy Monday peeps!  

Truly life changing in the most beautiful way!
 

If you follow me on InstaGram , you’ll notice I’ve been a traveling fool lately. I owe y’all umpteen traveling posts.

But until then, let me share a food gem from my most recent travels to Corpus Christi, Texas.

I love all things Tex-Mex, even though this gringo can’t go beyond “mild” in Texas heat ratings. We had a lovely stay on the beach and dined twice at Fajitaville on the Beach.  Doesn’t that sound like fun restaurant?  They even have a Ferris wheel!

Besides amazing fajitas, we enjoyed their Guac & Rolls as appetizers, thanks to the generous coupon we found on Restaurant.com .  Fajitaville’s Guac & Rolls were delicious but they were fried…and while okay for a Spring Break trip, not so good in everyday living.   But I was determined to recreate these rolls…baked!

If you’re not near Fajitaville to grab some of their Guac & Rolls or you’re trying to avoid fried food, these Holy Guacamole Baked Appetizers will fit the bill!

These apps are super easy and will make you the star of your next party/cook out/family meal! 

Also, big shout out to Nasoya All-Natural Won Ton Wraps for instructions on how to properly wrap a won ton wrapper! #foodorigami

I remembered to take a photo after I made these rolls, but this photo shows all my ingredients for the guac and the won ton wrappers I used
 

HOLY GUACAMOLE BAKED APPETIZERS 

Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado, mashed and seasoned with lime juice, cumin and kosher salt to taste (or grab your favorite store bought Guac)
  • 12 Won Ton Wrappers (you will find them in the refrigerated produce section)
  • Olive Oil Spray
  • A little bowl of water
  • Baking sheet sprayed with oil
  • 1 teaspoon

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Make your Guac or open your store bought container 
  • Lay out 12 won ton wrappers on a sprayed baking sheet
  • Spoon a heaping teaspoon of Guac on to the middle of each won ton wrapper
  • Wet all 4 edges of the won ton wrapper with the water (I dipped my fingers in the small bowl of water) and make a triangle, pressing edges together. 
  • Invert the triangle with the top pointing down and bring the two ends of the triangle together, pressing them together. 
  • Work quickly as the won ton wrappers can dry out. 
  • After you’ve filled and folded all 12 won ton wrappers, give a light spray of oil over all the wrappers. 
  • Cook for 8-10 minutes. 
  • Serve with salsa or ranch dip or anything else your heart desires!
Aren’t they pretty?

        For Your Weekend | Super Bowl Weekend Edition

        Yes…it’s Super Bowl time again and it’s an epic matchup between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers.  Here’s your cheat sheet before you hit the Super Bowl party.  

        The old quarterback (Bronco’s Peyton Manning vs. the new kid (Panther’s Cam Newton) makes it interesting. Who can deny big love for Peyton Manning….

        …giving himself a pep talk to his bobblehead.  

        But the kid Cam can catch some attention himself…

        …it takes some guts and apparently a lot of extra cash to pull of this look!!  

        So, you may be able to make your pick based on these two factors alone.  But no…here’s the twist…Michael Oher, who’s life was depicted in The Blind Side plays for the Panthers and this….

        …basically Sandra Bullock’s son is playing in the Super Bowl!!! All the feels!!  

        I don’t know that I can pick a team to cheer for  but I know the game will be amazing. And if this happens… 

        Go follow @notkennyrogers now!

        …It would make me a happy crying mess!!  But  seriously, go follow Not Kenny Rogers .

        As a huge Coldplay fan, I’m so excited that they’re playing the halftime show!!!  I’ve been listening to their newest album, A Headful of Dreams, nonstop this week!

        And if Super Bowl’s 50th game doesn’t stir you, maybe this story of 5 friends who have attended every single Super Bowl game when tickets the first year cost $10 a piece.  

        Maybe the food is more your thing!  

        This skinny mozzarella sticks recipe from Skinnytaste would be a perfect snack or maybe or dare I suggest my own Super Easy Bowl chicken salad recipe here!

        Or maybe you’ll be watching it for the commercials!

        Hope you have a “super” weekend whatever you decide to do!!  Let me know in the comments!
