Mexican Bruschetta!

When Italian meets for a vacation in Mexico!

I’m ALWAYS rummaging through my cupboards or fridge for a snack, I know, shocker!  The easy-grab fruits and veggies didn’t sound good – I wanted something filling and fresh for my tasters.  I think I had Bruschetta on the brain, probably due to watching The Real Housewives of New Jersey Marathon – the best.  So I got creative-ish and pulled together some of my new and old Trader Joe’s favorites.  Ak Mak’s (100% whole wheat sesame crackers), Fat Free Spicy Black Bean Dip, Fresh Pico De Gallo (mild), and lastly Cherry Tomatoes.

Put all those items together and Voila! Mexican Bruschetta! Seriously, Delish! Really Easy! Filling! Even better, looks pretty & uber LOW CAL/HEALTHY.  I thought this could be a strong contender of what I could bring to the next Girls Night Dinner.  Done and Done.  See below for the easiest healthy snack recipe!

For 2 whole crackers loaded with the goods, about 75cals.


1. Take 2 Ak Mak Sesame Crackers (Trader Joes – 100% Whole wheat)

2. Spread a thin layer of Fat Free Spicy Black Bean Dip on each (Trader Joes)

3. Slice a few cherry tomatoes and layer, flat side down.

4.  Scoop on Fresh Pico De Gallo Salsa over the whole cracker

5.  (Optional) Sprinkle on some Cinnamon – I’m obsessed with cinnamon and like the flavor combined with salsa (I add it to everything), however, option out if unsure 😉

Make 2 for a snack (75cals).  4-5 for an appetizer.  A whole box for a dinner party.
