Easy Finger Food

Avocado Salsa Bites

 

Easy Finger Food

This week I have been focusing on entertaining, it is on my mind and I know it is a part of the festive season that can cause stress for many people. It is an additional thing to have to manage at an already busy time. On Monday I added a recipe for lovely, different mushroom salad, perfect to take to a BBQ.

The recipe below is one that I have made many times and is always a welcome addition to a gathering. It is a “two for one” nibble. The salsa topping that is left over can be served separately  with toasted pita slices, wafers or corn chips.

I like this type of party food, it is easy entertaining. It uses fresh new season produce, is simple to prepare and it looks good.

Each of the recipe components can be made in advance, ready to assemble as required. This leaves you free to mingle and enjoy the company of your guests.

  • 2 tablespoons of light ricotta
  • salt and pepper to season
  • ½ red chilli finely sliced (optional)
Instructions
  1. Heat the oven to 180 degrees
  2. Push each wrapper into the base of a small muffin pan and cook for 15 minutes until golden
  3. Remove from the oven to cool
  4. To make the base, add the lemon juice, ricotta and salt and pepper to the mashed avocado
  5. To make the salsa, combine the capsicum and tomato pieces and mix to combine.
  6. Add the oil salt and pepper and stir again to coat
  7. To serve, scoop the avocado mash into the bottom of each of the cooled wrappers and top with the salsa. Add finely chopped fresh chilli (optional) or freshly chopped parsley or basil.
Notes
Use silicone muffin pans if you can as the wrappers are easy to remove from them
If you are unable to find Gow Gee wrappers, substitute with cut to size ready made pastry sheets
