Crispy Cheese Rollups with Guacamole

School's out for summer! I keep reading that on all my social media from parents just so excited not to be making as many bagged lunches these days. Then the next post is "kids driving me crazy" We can't win! Myself included. It took t-minus five minutes before the fights started around here. I have been muttering to myself about summer programs all week. Honestly, the quiet walls of my cubicle are looking pretty appealing right now! I have a few more days until programs start so I'm working from home while trying to keep up with the demands for breakfast, lunch and about four snacks in between.

Lunch today was crispy cheese rollups with guacamole on the side. The kids have gotten so tired of regular sandwiches for the last ten months so I wanted to make something that's never been in the lunch kit. It's basically a different way to prepare grilled cheese and super easy

The crispy cheese rollups start out as ordinary bread rolled flat with a rolling pin. I cut the crusts off but it's not necessary. Just spread butter or margarine on one side, flip it over, sprinkle with cheese, roll and bake! You can get creative with spices and herbs or just leave them plain with cheese to not disturb the peace. For the guacamole I used the new Guacamole Herb Blend. One jar makes four batches! Avocado, lime juice, salt, a quarter bottle of the herb blend and you have fresh guacamole in minutes.

If the kids aren't into guacamole and only want to dip things in ketchup then just keep the whole bowl for yourself, grab some chips, ear buds and escape the chaos!

Healthy Crunchy Snacks with Apples

There’s nothing quite like taking the first bite of an apple. And with so many different shapes and varieties of apples to try, the sweet sound of your first crunch could be different every time.

Apples have been most of humanity’s favorite fruit throughout much of history. Perhaps their crunchiness has something to do with their enviable position on top of our grocery lists. (It also helps that apples make us feel good, providing us with plenty of fiber and lots of vitamin C.) Since apples have lots of fiber and a high water content, they make us feel full and therefore fit nicely into any diet and weight-loss strategy .

Apple Recipes and Snack Ideas:

Give the ideas below a try, but never forget that a whole, raw apple delivers a good crunch and great taste.

  • Eat apple slices with cheese. This classic combination lends itself to many delightful combinations. Try apples with these cheesy pairings:
    • Herbed goat cheese
    • Sharp cheddar and fresh rosemary
    • Blue cheese, red pepper flakes, and honey
    • Swiss cheese and fresh dill
    • Brie and hazelnuts


    STEP 1. Cut the avocados in half and squeeze the top and bottom to loosen the seed. Then using a knife, cut into the seed and remove the seed.
    STEP 2. Use a fork to mash the avocado, about 2 cups worth.

    STEP 3. Make it a creamy consistency or chunky consistency (which ever your preference).
    STEP 4. Add in the cilantro, lime juice, garlic salt and pepper.

    STEP 5. Mix the ingredients together.
    STEP 6. Serve right away with chips and homemade salsa!

    Snack Attack: Our Latest, Greatest Crunchy Recipes

    We at Food Republic know the value of culinary textural elements, better known as “crunch.” We even have a whole recipe series dedicated to all things crisp, crunchy and shatter-rific. Whether you’re deep-frying, popping, baking or deep-frying again, there’s a way to get the audible satisfaction you desire in any of these delicious, crunchy recipes.

    Garlic-Fennel Porchetta Cracklins

    Porchetta, the beloved Italian pork roast laden with garlic and herbs, is always a huge hit for dinner parties and special occasions. But its outer coating of crispy pork skin, known as cotiche croccanti in Italian, always seems to disappear from the serving platter faster than the meat. In a give-the-people-what-they-want move, we’ve devised this way of preparing just the pork skin alla porchetta. Serve the warm cracklins alongside an aperitivo or as part of an antipasto, or try crumbling them slightly and using to top cannellini beans or a simple green salad.

    Learn to make crispy potato sticks and you’ll never look at a fry the same way again.

    Extra-Crispy Potato Sticks

    One of my all-time favorite snacks is Potato Stix. You know the ones—those crispy matchsticks sold in indestructible tins providing the ultimate protection against breakage. I’ve always opted for the supersized container, which reminds me of the extra-tall Folgers coffee cans my grandma would use. The edge of the can would lightly scratch my forearm when I tried to reach the bottom for the crumbs. Ah, those glorious crumbs were everything to me.

    These crunchy sweet, sour and spicy bites make a vibrant appetizer or snack.

    Delhi Papri Chaat

    I would never go to Delhi without visiting Sunder Nagar market to eat a plate of this famous street food. The hawker tosses crispy papri into a dried banana leaf plate, tops with potatoes and chickpeas, and almost throws the yogurt on and – lastly – the chutneys. All the while, I watch, mesmerized there is something so relaxing about those deft, repetitive moves.

    Make these fresh, crunchy chard rolls like they do in Vietnam.

    Swiss Chard Rolls

    I consistently order this exceptionally beautiful fresh roll at vegetarian restaurants in Sài Gòn. I adore how a bit of the filling, vermicelli noodles with sautéed cabbage, carrots, and fresh herbs, peeks out the sides, begging for a dip in a creamy peanut sauce. They’re easy to assemble and fabulous to serve as part of a light summer meal or as an hors d’oeuvres.

    Enjoy these crisp, savory artichoke “hot wings” (and don’t forget the dipping sauce).

    Fried Artichoke Hot Wings

    The kitchen at Golden Road makes its own marinated artichoke hearts in-house, and they leave the stems on long. Once the hearts are quartered, battered, fried, and doused with hot sauce, they really do look like chicken wings. Store-bought marinated quartered artichoke hearts will wind up looking more like artichoke poppers. But in any case, this recipe proves that vegan cuisine is more than just hippie health food—it’s delicious, mainstream, and on-trend.

    These sweet potato samosas are a perfect fall party food.

    Sweet Potato Samosa Purses

    Samosas are the traditional, pyramid-shaped fried pastries common in India, especially in the northern part. They are usually filled with potatoes and peas and served with mint-cilantro chutney and tamarind chutney.

    Spiralize your potatoes and finish with your favorite toppings!

    Crispy Tornado Potatoes

    Even those of us with fledgling knife skills will feel like iron chefs after crafting curlicue accordions out of simple spuds. Just thread the potatoes onto skewers, then carve around with a sharp knife. Pulling the potato apart creates all the nooks and crannies you need to season with butter (because, butter!), cheese, and spices before baking to a crisp. Think of it as chips on a stick!

    Get these taquitos on the table, fast, no deep-fryer necessary.

    Oven-Fried Beef Taquitos

    By baking taquitos in a hot oven, we found a way to still achieve that crispy, crave-worthy shell. A seasoned beef and zucchini filling and sharp Cheddar give this dish loads of flavor. Don’t worry if some of the taquitos crack open while baking — they’ll still be delicious. Serve with your favorite salsa, guacamole and sour cream.

    1. Heat a large skillet or sauté pan over medium-high heat.
    2. Add the oil and chorizo cook until browned, using a wooden spoon to break up the meat into smaller pieces. Remove from the pan and drain all but a thin film of the fat.
    3. Return to the heat and add the onion, mushrooms, and pepper sauté, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are brown—5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
    4. Divide the cheese between 2 tortillas and top each with half of the vegetable mixture. Top with the remaining tortillas.
    5. Heat a large cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Spray the pan with nonstick cooking spray and cook each quesadilla individually, until the tortillas are brown and crispy and the cheese is fully melted.
    6. Cut into 4 or 6 wedges and serve with the guacamole.

    Eat This Tip

    Individually toasting the quesadillas in a cast-iron skillet yields the crispest, tastiest results imaginable, but if you're making a round for the whole family and want to save some serious meal prep time, try the broiler or even the grill (which adds delicious smoky notes to the quesadilla as well). Simply preheat either, assemble all of your quesadillas, and cook 6" under the broiler or directly on the grill grates for 3 to 4 minutes on one side. Carefully flip, then continue cooking for another 3 to 4 minutes, until toasted on the outside and melted in the middle.

    Martha Stewart’s Guacamole Recipe Has Two Ingredients That Make It Next-Level

    Avocados, tomatoes, red onions, cilantro, lime: A simple, solid serving of guacamole is so easy to make. But what we love most about this quick summertime side dish is it’s even easier to dress up. Want to give it a sweet, fruity twist? Toss in some chopped pineapples or mangoes. Want a more savory take? Do it the Martha Stewart way and add crunchy toasted pumpkin seeds and cotija cheese.

    “Whether it’s for taco night or an easy afternoon snack, we love to make guacamole for a healthy, delicious dip to serve alongside tortilla chips, crudités, or crackers,” Stewart recently wrote on Instagram. “Crunchy toasted pumpkin seeds and cotija take this otherwise classic guacamole to new heights.”

    Stewart’s Guacamole with Toasted Pepitas and Cotija Cheese recipe will take you all of 10 minutes to make. And in addition to the aforementioned essential guacamole ingredients, (again, that’s avocados, lime juice, red onions, and cilantro), you’ll need to pick up just a few more items from the store: jalapeños, pepitas, and cotija cheese (feta works, too). And if you don’t have a molcajete (or, a mortar and pestle), order one of those, too. We highly recommend this 8-inch molcajete made from volcanic stone:

    Have all your tools and ingredients ready? Good. Now it’s time to mash the avocados and mix in the veggies and lime juice. Top with the toasted pepitas and cheese, and serve! Really, it’s as easy as that.
