THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS #59 (CHRISTMAS APPETIZERS & PARTY PLATTERS) and Chicken & Guacamole Taco Rolls



THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS Linky Party
CHRISTMAS APPETIZERS and PARTY PLATTERS
Chicken & Guacamole Taco Rolls


These appetizers would be perfect for a holiday gathering. I made them to test them out and my kids devoured them. They even asked for more that is a sure sign in my house, that it's a repeat recipe. We used our favorite guacamole recipe (recipe below), but store bought would work well too!
I am SO late in posting this today! I had TWO Secret Recipe Challenge posts today and I am three days behind on my 12 Days of Christmas Goodies (I hope to have these posted later on today). You may just get 6 posts from me all in the same day. (ahhhhh wouldn't that be something). I do hope that you click on over and check out both of these other events that I have been working my tale off. I would be ever so grateful. Maybe you can walk away with an idea or two to make for Christmas.

Also...... GUESS WHAT??? I have something SPECIAL... Just For You....starting tomorrow I have a treat for all of you.... I have lined up Guest Posts from now until Christmas. Yep... for the next 12 days you will be amazed at the wonderful talent out there in blogland. I am thankful for each and every one of my guests and I am SO happy that some of them are coming over here to MOMS CRAZY COOKING to share with all of you! You are all in for a very Special Treat!



Guacamole Taco Rolls
recipe found on Duhlicious

10 flour or corn tortillas
2 cups of oil for frying

Heat oil in a large skillet. Place 1 tbsp of guacamole in the center of a flour tortilla, fold the outer edges in, and tightly roll. Secure the tortilla rolls with toothpicks (if you wish). Fry the tortilla-guacamole rolls for 90 seconds on each side, or until golden brown. Carefully remove the rolls from the oil, and allow to cool slightly on a paper towel lined cookie sheet. Serve alongside sour cream, and pico de gallo.

Here is our FAVORITE Guacamole Recipe (below).
The Perfect Guacamole


4 Avocados
1/4 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Lime and/or Lemon Juice
1-2 Roma Tomatoes
Onion, chopped (as many or little as you'd like)
Jalapenos Chilies (we use very very little, but if you want spicy, add more)
1 tbsp Cilantro (fresh is better, but dried works too)

Slice avocados in half; scoop out the pit (and keep in the bowl), cut avocados in chunks and coarsely mash (do NOT mash until creamy). Season with coarse salt (go easy, use too much and it will overpower). Add in fresh lime or lemon. Mix in tomatoes (cherry or grape tomatoes work great too). Sprinkle in finely chopped onions, a few chopped jalapenos and some finely chopped fresh cilantro.

The BEST Guacamole EVER!!!
