Turkey Avocado Roll Ups 

Cook's Notes: A healthy light perfect party snack or an easy lunch idea. You can add variety here by switching out the type of cheese, using ham instead of turkey, vegetarian by adding in more veggies and by using a different flavor wrap. Recipe from and one wrap makes 10 pinwheels. 

Spinach or whole wheat flavored wraps
Roasted deli turkey
Torn spinach leaves
Swiss cheese slices
Prepared avocado dip or guacamole
Optional 3 slices of bacon cooked and crumbled

Directions:Lay your tortillas flat. Spread 1/4 avocado dip on each tortilla.
Layer with cheese, spinach, turkey and bacon bits if using. Roll the tortilla lengthwise tightly. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 1-2 hours.
Use a serrated knife and cut crosswise into 10 pieces to serve.

Skinny Taco Dip
Cook's Notes: It's a light and zesty appetizer that will be a serious crowd pleaser. It's lightened up with light cream cheese and yogurt. How zesty it is depends on your salsa choice mild or hot. Recipe adapted from

4 oz. light cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup each your favorite salsa and fat free yogurt
1 TB. taco seasoning mix (dry)
1 cup diced lettuce
1/2 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup grape tomatoes, diced
Guacamole, dollops or diced avocados
2 green onions, diced

Combine the softened cream cheese, yogurt, salsa and taco seasoning. Beat until smooth.
Spread out on a plate and refrigerate 1 hour.

Top with remaining ingredients, serve with chips, add festive napkins and your party is ready to rock. 

Gluten- Free Guacamole Tomato and Cheese Appetizers 

Cook's Notes: Tostitos Scoops (Chips) are labeled gluten-free and included on Frito Lay’s gluten-free list. Keep in mind that there’s always a number of broken ones in the bag, so if you want a full tray to bring to a party, pick up two bags so you’ll have enough intact scoop chips to use. Also, add guacamole right before serving so chips don't get soggy.

A timesaver- using store bought guacamole that is gluten-free. Just be sure your guacamole store bought or homemade has a good amount of lemon or lime juice so that it doesn’t turn an unappealing brown color as it sits out at the party.
Cherry or grape tomatoes are perfect to give you firm, small slices for these.
Cilantro – a little goes a long way for flavor!

1-2 bags of Scoops
Grape tomatoes
Prepared Guacamole
Shredded Mexican Cheeses or Pepper Jack Cheese
Snips of cilantro

Arrange Scoops in single rows on a serving tray.
Fill each with a tablespoon of guacamole.
Sprinkle with cheese and top with a tomato piece.
