Barb's Firecrackers

Recipe by  

"I needed something to bring to my niece's 4th of July party. I wanted something portable, simple to make, and of course really tasty! I love Mexican food so this recipe in inspired from south of the border, yet created in New England. You can adjust the heat on the recipe by using a hotter or milder taco seasoning."

Directions

  1. Stir refried beans and taco seasoning mix together in a bowl. Place soft cream cheese in a separate bowl and stir until the cream cheese is workable; thoroughly mix in the prepared guacamole.
  2. Lay a tortilla onto a work surface and spread with 1/2 cup of bean mixture in a smooth, even layer; top with 1/2 cup of guacamole mix in a layer. Roll up the tortilla into a log and moisten the far edge with a little water to seal. Wrap rolled tortillas tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, 1 hour to overnight.
  3. To serve, unwrap the rolls and trim off the uneven edges of each roll; cut into 1-inch pieces. Place a piece into each cupcake paper and insert a red pepper strip into the end for a wick. Sprinkle appetizers with chopped green onion.

I did not add the chile peppers only because I knew that my husband and kids would not like them. Instead of making appetizers out of this recipe, I actually made this into lunch wraps for my family by adding leaf lettuce and sliced tomatoes layered over the spread mixture. Everyone loved these, even my husband called me from work and asked me to make this again tomorrow. GREAT change from your everyday lunch plus it was cheap to make and counted as a meatless meal!

Everyone loved these little delights. I added crushed red peppers and cayenne pepper to give it a little more kick. I also nixed the cupcake liners and displayed them on a platter with the chopped green pepper sprinkled all over the tortillas and the platter. Gorgeous!

Pretty good, however a little too mushy.

This is really good, quick & easy! With that said I think this recipe is a great base to start with and you can add or delete what you want. I used black bean refried beans mixed with taco seasoning and a little salsa, added some shredded cheddar on top of the beans and the cream cheese guacamole mixture on top of that. Yummy! Oh yes, the cream cheese guacamole mixture is a genius idea, tastes great and keeps the guacamole from turning that unappealing brown color..
