Easy Appetizers With Healthier Ingredients From Mission

March 27, 2021

Finding recipes for healthier appetizers can be challenging. If they aren’t deep-fried, they’re typically loaded with ingredients that aren’t necessarily good for you. 

Well, your search ends today! Our Better For You easy appetizers provides the delicious authentic taste and healthier ingredients you’re looking for. (You may even have a tough time splitting these dishes with your guests!) 

Spinach Artichoke and Shrimp Quesadilla

Possibly the quintessential shareable appetizer, this quesadilla is next-level with shrimp, spinach artichoke dip, and mozzarella. Prep plus cook time is only 20 minutes, and the recipe is suitable for four people, leaving plenty to go around. Wrapped in Mission’s Gluten-Free Original Tortilla Wraps, you’ll have a gluten-free wrap that’s just as soft and delicious as our original tortilla wraps.

Roasted Poblano and Corn Guacamole

Another quick fix option is our poblano and corn guacamole. And with our sturdy, flavorful Organic Blue Corn Tortilla Chips, you’ll have the perfect scoop for each dip. Roast peppers and corn in the oven, and start mashing avocado with pepper, cilantro, onion, and lime juice. After stirring in the corn, peppers, and tomatoes, you’ll have a wonderful dip to share with friends or family. 

Creamy Cucumber Layered Dip

This fresh recipe is an excellent complement to Mission’s Organic White Corn Tortilla Chips, but you might need to buy a couple of bags to keep the crowd happy. Cucumbers, red onions, Italian seasoning, and reduced-fat cream cheese pack a powerful punch of flavor that can be whipped up in just 20 minutes. The recipe will feed groups of six to eight, so it’s great for picnics or sporting events.

Blackened Shrimp Nachos

Another appetizer on the list that will be tough to split is this seafood twist on nachos. Once again, Mission’s Organic Blue Corn Tortilla Chips are the chip of choice, creating a perfect bed and a satisfying crunch to each bite. After cooking the shrimp, you’ll have the traditional nacho assembly left. Our recipe makes four servings and is a great dish to start Mexican night on the right foot. And with our guac and salsa recipes included, you’ll have a easy app perfect for any palate. 

Low-Carb Loaded Mini Taco Cups

If the name isn’t enough of a mouthful, you’ll be chowing down on this yummy appetizer as soon as you’re done making it. With ground turkey to keep things lean and loads of flavor in bite-sized cups, these will be quick to disappear. Start by baking our Carb Balance Soft Taco Flour Tortillas with the help of a mini cupcake pan. Once crisp, you’ll fill them with ingredients and have a delicious mini appetizer that will make the kids just as happy as the adults.

Potato and Cheese Flautas in Green Sauce

Our flautas recipe works excellent with Mission’s Organic Whole Wheat Tortillas. These quality tortillas are made with certified non-GMO ingredients and will crisp perfectly for these flautas. This recipe is vegetarian-friendly, but chicken, beef, or turkey could easily be added for a carnivorous crowd. You’ll begin by making the green sauce with tomatillos, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, and salt. After that, you’ll cook potatoes and peppers before wrapping up the ingredients. Once wrapped with the mixture and a nice amount of cheese, you’ll cook the flautas in a skillet until they crisp up and turn golden. Flautas make an excellent, easy appetizer for any occasion!
