The top 4 are singing songs from the Golden State tonight on American Idol so I thought I would do something easy and healthy(ish). After last week’s culinary brit invasion I needed something simple and quick. When I think California I think about the beach, beautiful people, and keeping your waste line in check. So what better snack is there then some creamy avocado wrapped in a whole wheat flour tortilla. Of course I had to add some cheese and sour cream to make it that much better (I told you healthyish)!
There’s only a few weeks left until the finale but you can still check out my recipes on Yahoo Music’s own, Lyndsey Parker, and her Reality Rocks blog! Okay, sales pitch over, make this shiz…it’s super tasty!
Check out tonight’s recipe feature HERE!

- 1/4 cup light sour cream
- 1/2 lime, juiced

Make sure you get some perfectly ripe avocados.
In a large bowl mix together the avocado and next 5 ingredients, through the chile powder.

Smear the avocado mixture onto the tortilla leaving a small border.
Sprinkle with the cheese.

Cut the chilled tortilla rolls with a serrated knife into 1″ pin-rolls.
