Mexican Roll-Ups

Enjoy guacamole the low fat way–rolled up with chunky salsa and nonfat cheese in tasty lasagna noodles. Substituting lasagna noodles for tortilla chips eliminates more than 30% of calories from fat.

Yield

Makes 12 appetizers

Ingredients

6 uncooked lasagna noodles
3/4 cup prepared guacamole
3/4 cup chunky salsa
3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded fat-free Cheddar cheese
Additional salsa (optional)

Preparation

  1. Cook lasagna noodles according to package directions, omitting salt. Rinse with cool water; drain. Cool.
  2. Spread 2 tablespoons guacamole onto each noodle; top each with 2 tablespoons salsa and 2 tablespoons cheese.
  3. Roll up noodles jelly-roll fashion. Cut each roll-up in half to form two equal-size roll-ups. Serve immediately with additional salsa, if desired, or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate up to 3 hours.
