Apps With A Mexican Style Twist

What I love about this appetizer tray is it is using a couple of similar ingredients in each app.  It makes it more budget friendly.  I have made this twice now, both times to rave reviews and no leftovers. 😊

You can use a nice board or as pictured I used a baking sheet with parchment paper which worked great.

  • Fiesta Crisps
  • Jicama Sticks
  • Cucumber Bites
  • Black Bean Pinwheels
  • Guava & Pepper Cheese

Fiesta Crisps

  1. Place parchment paper on baking sheet and sprinkle a pile of fiesta or Mexican style shredded cheese.
  2. Roast at 400 for about 5 min. It might take a few min longer wait until edges crisp.  
  3. Let cool 5 min and remove with a spatula. 

Jicama Sticks

  1. Peel and slice jicama in sticks.
  2. Roll in Tajin Classico Seasoning.

Cucumber Bites

  1. Peel and slice in rounds.
  2. Dip in Tajin Classico Seasoning.

Black Bean Pinwheels

  1. Drain a can of black beans discarding liquid and smoosh with a fork.  
    Mix in a handful or two of Fiesta or Mexican Cheese. Lightly sprinkle Tajin Classico Seasoning in the mixture.
  2. Spread mixture on tortillas.
  3. Roll tortillas up and put in fridge for 30 min.
  4. Remove and slice into pinwheels.

Guava & Pepper Cheese

  1. Slice pepper cheese in cubes.
  2. Slice Guava paste in cubes (it’s sticky sometimes I use a cheese knife).
