Snackin’ with Sarah Sellers: Taco Packets with Avocado Cream

Tonight is the last performance in Vegas on American Idol before the remaining contestants find out if they make it to the big stage or not. I’ve got some serious catching up to do on Idol. I’ve been too busy coming up with delicious snacks for Lyndsay Parker’s Yahoo! blog, Reality Rocks.

I’m not really sure what got in to me with this one but I must say…it’s freakin delicious. It’s too small for a burrito, too big for Flautas but just right to pop in the oven and call them taco packets. It has all the elements of a crispy taco, just stuffed in a tortilla and served with some creamy goodness on the side.

Try them…eat them all…they’re that tasty! 🙂

Quick & Easy Snacking – American Idol Top 9

Last week’s American Idol results show delivered one of the most shocking eliminations in Idol history.

With two ladies left in the competition it’s not looking good for a female winner this year.

With a Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame theme and tons of talent packed in to Wednesday night’s performance round, I decided to pay homage to two great bands. These recipes are a little more detailed then a quick and easy snack, but are well worth the extra effort.
