Simple, yet satisfying, these Cheesy Taco Boat Quesadilla Dippers are the perfect snack and allow for a variety of dips to go with them!
Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of cooking complicated holiday recipes, and I’m even more tired of eating the leftovers.
Today, I just want something simple. Something snackable, cheesy, and involving guacamole.
Forgive me for claiming this as a “recipe,” but it’s one of my favorite go-to snacks and I felt like it was time I shared it with you.
I don’t always eat complicated curries, slow-simmered soups, and stacked enchiladas.
I, just like you, sometimes just need food and need it now.
These Cheesy Taco Boat Quesadilla Dippers are my very favorite snack, and I even make them for my family when they come over. My niece and nephew gobble them up, so I usually double or triple the recipe.
I use Old El Paso’s mini taco boats to form little cheese quesadilla taco boats that are portable and scoopable.
All you have to do is assemble, pop in the toaster oven, then serve with your favorite salsa and dips.
I love fresh pico de gallo and guacamole – sometimes I even mix the two together. Don’t tell.
Sometimes I just fill these taco boat dippers with a mixture of warm refried beans and cream cheese. So basic, yet so good.
For a hearty appetizer, load up the top taco boats with refried beans and more cheese before toasting.
Top with guacamole, sour cream, and pico de gallo to make Loaded Bean Dip Bites.
These taco boats are also perfect for scooping up Queso Fundido Colorado!
