Instructions
 

Taquitos

  • Heat oven to 400 °f / 200 °c and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Combine all the ingredients (except the oil, salt and tortillas) in a bowl, stir until everything is coated in cream cheese.
  • Microwave a few tortillas at a time for about 30 seconds, so they're soft enough to roll without cracking. Place 3 tbs. of the mixture on the lower third of the tortilla, keeping it about 1 inch from the edges. Roll the tortilla and place it seam down on the baking sheet, not touching the others.
  • Coat with oil, sprinkle with sea salt and bake for about 15 minutes until the ends are golden brown.

Chipotle Mayo

  • Mix all the ingredients together with a blender until smooth.
  • Let it sit in the fridge for about 30 minutes before serving to let the flavors develop.

Tomato Salsa

  • You can just combine all the chopped ingredients in a bowl and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • I do, however, love making salsas and dips in my Chef'n VeggiChop Hand-Powered Food Chopper. Add the onion and garlic first to get it as fine as possible. Then the rest of the ingredients.

Guacamole

  • Use a spoon or fork to smash the avocado until it's creamy, but there are still some chunks of the avocado left.
  • Fold in red onion, tomato, garlic, cilantro, and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
