Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner. Here’s a fun and interesting appetizer to serve or bring to a party. It has a light vegetarian taste that is made slightly rich by the cream cheese.
3 ounces low-fat cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 tablespoons seeded and finely chopped chipotle in adobo
1 large plain flour tortilla
1 large tomato-flavored tortilla
1 large spinach-flavored tortilla
3/4 cup low-fat refried black beans
6 tablespoons pico de gallo salsa
1 1/2 Avocados from Mexico, peeled, pitted and diced
3/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
Mix together cream cheese and chipotle. Heat tortillas in microwave or oven to soften. Spread each tortilla with 2 Tbsp. chipotle cream cheese, 1/4 cup black beans and 2 Tbsp. salsa. Scatter one-third of the avocado and cilantro on each.
Roll up tortillas tightly; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate. To serve, unwrap and trim ends; cut each roll across into 6 pieces.
