  • Guac ‘N Roll: This rockin’ take on guacamole features a vibrant avocado filling carefully wrapped in Phyllo dough, along with fresh tomato. A drizzle of tangy tamari arbol sauce and a squeeze of fresh lime complete this delightful bite.
  • Mini Chimi: Inspired by the iconic Chimichanga, this dish offers a fun twist. A cream cheese jalapeño popper gets nestled inside a crispy flour tortilla with rice, beans, and melted cheese – a perfect party appetizer!
