Southwestern Cracker Bites
These zippy little bites are a snap to put together and a fantastic not-greasy game day snack. This recipe makes 12 bites but can easily be doubled.
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: 0 minutes
24 butter flavored crackers
4 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
1/2 teaspoon chili powder (optional)
1 avocado, diced
1/4 red, sweet or white onion, finely chopped
1/2 bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 medium tomato, seeded and finely chopped
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and pepper, to taste
In a small bowl, whip together the cream cheese and chili powder. Set aside.
Combine the avocado, onion, pepper, tomato and lime juice, taking care not to bruise the avocado. Season with salt and pepper.
To assemble the bites, place one cracker on your work surface. Spread about a teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture on the cracker and top with another cracker. Place a scoop of the salsa on top of the cracker. Repeat until all ingredients are used. Serve right away.
