Gluten Free Chicken Flautas

All wrapped up in bite-sized packages and ready for guests, these gluten free chicken flautas are the perfect appetizer for sharing at a party or event. Baking in the oven until crispy and warm gives these flautas a handheld crunch that you won’t believe comes from our Gluten Free Original Tortilla Wraps. Adding plenty of seasoning to your chicken mixture will make sure these flautas are flavorful on their own, but you can offer guests an array of toppings (cilantro, guacamole, salsa, sour cream) for extra fun!

Creamy Cucumber Layered Dip

A deceptively simple appetizer that offers a crisp bite in between the heavier fare, this cucumber dip can be thrown together last-minute if you need a quick gluten free offering. Combine Greek yogurt, cream cheese, lemon juice, and seasoning, then top with diced cucumber and red onions. Our Organic White Corn Tortilla Chips are naturally gluten free and light enough to compliment this dip well.

Savory Apple Pie Dip

If you’d like to offer sweeter gluten free appetizers alongside the savory ones, this apple pie dip is a great compromise. By combining apple slices and cinnamon with savory cayenne pepper and onions, you’ll create a delicious dip that’s worthy of seconds, thirds, and fourths. Use our Thin and Crispy Tortilla Chips for a naturally gluten free crunch that can hold up to as much dip as you can pile on.

Gluten Free Curried Avocado Bites

Introduce bold flavor into the party with these curried avocado bites. Not only will your friends love the taste but toasting the curry and other spices while cooking will make your house smell amazing, too! Simply brush our Gluten Free Original Tortilla Wraps with olive oil and toast over medium heat until golden brown, then immediately sprinkle with your curry spice mixture. Fresh avocado slices on top will balance the heat from the spices and add some creaminess to each bite; you can even cut the tortillas into wedges and allow guests to dip in guacamole instead!

Air Fried Philly Cheesesteak Taquitos

A great gluten free appetizer for a party, these air fried taquitos can bake themselves while you tend to other party prep before the guests arrive – just put the filling in a slow cooker during the day, then assemble the rest of the ingredients closer to party time and pop them in the air fryer! Our naturally gluten-free Extra Thin Yellow Corn Tortillas crisp up perfectly in the air fryer, so you don’t have to worry about soggy fare. The delicious beef filling will be full of flavor after a day slowly cooking, and the green peppers and cheese add a crisp and creamy balance to each bite.

Street Corn Jalapeño Dip

For a smoky and fiery appetizer that’s perfect in any season, try this street corn jalapeño dip. By roasting the corn, jalapeños, and green chiles in the oven first, you’ll bring out a robust flavor that will take this dip from good to great. The mix of sour cream, pepper jack cheese, and mayonnaise rounds out the flavors to make this dip creamy yet bold. Make sure to time things so that you pull it bubbling out of the oven right after guests arrive. Serve with our naturally gluten-free Organic Blue Corn Tortilla Chips for a flavor combination that will have everyone raving for days to come.

Serve up some bold flavor with these gluten free appetizers at your next gathering!
