So tonight, the top four Idols will sing songs from my own home turf, California. How was Sarah inspired by this theme? "When I think California, I think healthy and fresh, and considering last week's British recipes, I wanted something simple this week," she says. "So this recipe is an ode to the avocado, something I always want when I'm in Cali!"
Avocado Tortilla Roll-Ups
▪ 1 large avocado
▪ 1/4 cup light sour cream
▪ 1/2 lime, juiced
▪ 1/4 tsp kosher salt
▪ 1/4 tsp garlic powder
▪ 1/4 tsp chili powder
▪ 1 tsp jalapeno, finely chopped
▪ 6 whole-wheat tortillas, or 3 super-sized tortillas
▪ 1 cup Colby cheddar cheese blend, shredded
▪ 1/2 cup loosely packed cilantro, rough chop
▪ Cholula chili garlic hot sauce
In a large bowl, mix together the avocado and next 6 ingredients, through the jalapeno, until nice and smooth. Smear the avocado mixture onto the tortilla, leaving a small border. Sprinkle with the cheese and cilantro, then drizzle with the hot sauce. Repeat with the remaining 5 tortillas. Place in the fridge until ready to serve.
Cut the chilled tortilla rolls with a serrated knife into 1" pin-rolls.
