Mexican Sushi

This non-traditional “sushi” contains no fish or rice! Using tomato and spinach-flavored tortillas filled with refried beans, pico de gallo, avocados and cream cheese, this delicious wrap is cut into small pieces, resembling sushi. This is a great choice for your child’s lunchbox or an after-school snack.

  • 3 oz. reduced fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1-1/2 T. chipotle in adobo, seeded and finely chopped

  • 6 T. pico de gallo
  • 1-1/2 ea. medium Avocados From Mexico, halved, pitted, peeled, and diced
  • 3/4 c. lightly packed cilantro, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Wrap tortillas in foil, and heat in oven until softened, about 5 minutes.
  3. In small bowl, combine cream cheese and chipotle.
  4. Spread each warm tortilla with 2 tablespoons chipotle cream cheese. Top with 1/3 of black beans, then 1/3of salsa. Scatter 1/3 of the avocado and cilantro over salsa.
