If you’re just as smitten over adorable finger foods as me, then you’re in the right place. These cuties are so easy and fun to make and are perfect for your game day celebrations this weekend (or even as a mid-day lunch snack). 

Baked tortilla cups filled with guacamole, grilled corn, fresh tomatoes, red onion, and some jalapeno for heat (totally optional of course). They are seriously soooo good!

How to make guacamole cups

Start by cutting your tortillas. Use a knife (or pizza cutter!) to cut off all the edges or the tortillas, forming a square. Then, cut that square into 4 smaller squares. You will get 4 squares from 1 large tortilla.

Spray a cupcake tin with cooking spray and put your tortilla squares into each cavity. This recipe makes 24 cups so you either have to bake them in batches or use two cupcake tins.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.

While the tortilla cups are baking, grill your corn. Use fresh or frozen corn and sautee it with a little bit of olive oil.

Once the tortilla cups are baked, use a cookie scoop or a spoon to divide the guacamole equally into each tortilla cup. Garnish with lots of toppings and voila! The easiest vegan appetizer EVER!

Variations of this recipe:

  • To make these guacamole cups gluten-free, use corn tortillas instead. They typically don’t make large corn tortillas as they aren’t ideal for burritos, but you can get street taco size and put them in the cupcake tin as they are!
  • Use any toppings you’d like! Vegan sour cream, cotija cheese (not vegan), black olive slices, chopped bell pepper, etc. Get creative with this one!

Meal Prep Tips:

This recipe is super easy so prepping anything in advance isn’t usually needed. However, you can bake the tortilla cups the day before and just mix the guacamole before serving. I would not recommend prepping the guacamole in advance because avocado browns fairly quickly once the package is open.

Avocado is safe to eat when it browns (it’s the air that causes it) but it sure doesn’t make an appetizing snack when the guacamole is brown.
