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?

        Easy Valentine’s Day Sweet Rolls

        Easy Valentine’s Day Sweet Rolls

          

        Happy Valentine’s Weekend!

        Hope you’re braving the Arctic vortex warmly this weekend…it’s presently snowing again in Kentucky and the forecast calls for more snow.

        Maybe you’re excited about Valentine’s falling on the weekend and want to do something special for breakfast…something Martha Stewart Pinterest worthy but zero effort!  I mean, you’ve already pulled out all the stops for your child’s Valentine’s Day box!

        I’ve got the sweetest solution for your dilemma!  I saw this idea earlier this week on the Today Show…but, thought of a nifty improvement…mini sweet rolls! 

        This is what you need:

        • Can of normal sized  8 count cinnamon rolls you find in the dairy aisle
        • A knife
        • A cookie sheet
        • An oven

        The End.

        I’ll walk you through the steps:

        Step 1:

         Buy the cinnamon roll regular sized 8 count (it will make 16 per this hack)

        Dont buy the giant sized can…buy the 8 count regular sized sweet rolls…these Pillsbury ones are yummy!
         

        Step 2:

        Set aside the frosting (on the left) and get out a sharp knife!  

        Step 3:

        Separate the 8 cinnamon rolls…each will look like this one.  

        Step 4:

        Unroll the cinnamon roll.  

        Step 5:

        Cut the length of the unrolled cinnamon roll in half…just eye ball it!

        Step 6:

        Take each end of one of the halves of the cinnamon roll and roll each end toward the middle, then pinch the bottom to make it heart-shaped. 

        Just like snowflakes, each heart will be different!!
          

        Step 7:

        Finish the roll and place on cookie sheet into oven per baking directions.  I didn’t have to cut the time of the baking even though the rolls were smaller!  

        Step 8:

        After baking , frost cinnamon rolls and enjoy!  

        Of course, you could make normal sized heart shaped cinnamon rolls…but the mini size is so sweet and cute!!!

         

        These mini heart shaped cinnamon rolls would be sweet tucked inside your child’s lunch box or for an after school treat! 

        How are you spending Valentine’s Day with your sweetheart(s)?  I’d love to hear!
