When I think of party food I think of finger food, and these Avocado and Chorizo Stuffed Party Rolls are finger lickin’ good!

I also threw together a killer Creamy Avocado Cilantro Ranch Dip to go along with these tasty stuffed rolls. Together, they are unstoppable.

I love how these rolls turned out. By overlapping the bread dough and stuffing them with delicious California Avocados and spicy chorizo, it’s a beautiful and tasty center piece for your party guests to dig in to.

Avocado Chorizo Rolls

You’ll love how easy this recipe is because I used frozen roll dough as the base. No messing with yeast on this one guys!

For the chorizo I used a pre-cooked Spanish style {spicy} link, that I then cut into small pieces. Feel free to substitute this with anything from diced grilled chicken breast, to ground beef! The possibilities for this stuffing are endless.

California Avocado

The most important thing you want to stuff in these rolls are some creamy California Avocados. Did you know that avocados are such an essential part of Cinco de Mayo festivities that the California Avocado Commission estimates that over 87 million pounds of avocados will be consumed during this time of the year?!

So yeah… I’m sure you wont have any trouble getting in on the recipe contest next week, right!?

Avocado and Chorizo Stuffed Party Rolls

Ingredients

  • 12 frozen roll dough balls, thawed
  • 1 ripe California Avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1 cup spicy Spanish style Chorizo (precooked) link, cut into a small dice
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • 1 fresh jalapeño pepper, diced (feel free to remove the seeds if you want it less spicy)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Lightly flour a clean area on your counter top, then combine the dough balls into one ball. Roll the dough into a large circle (similar to a pizza), then cover with plastic wrap and let rest while you prepare the filling.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. In a medium size bowl combine the diced California Avocado, diced chorizo, corn, jalapeño, salt, garlic powder, paprika, onion powder and cilantro, and lightly toss to evenly incorporate the ingredients. Set the avocado mixture aside.
  4. Remove the plastic wrap from the bread dough and using a pizza cutter, make 8 even pie shaped pieces. Place the dough triangles on a pizza pan with the long point of the triangle pointing out, and the smaller sides slightly overlapping each other to create an interlocking ring.
  5. Evenly distribute the filling among the dough triangles, then take the long part of the dough, wrap it over the filling and tuck it underneath. (Some filling will be showing still)
  6. Sprinkle the stuffed rolls with a little cheddar cheese, then bake for 15-20 minutes.
  7. Serve with the Creamy Avocado Cilantro Ranch Dip (recipe below) Enjoy!
