Healthy Holiday Recipes: Mini Mexican Flatbreads with Gazpacho Shooters

Hi everyone! My name is Katie, and I blog over at Ruffles & Truffles! I’m a girl who loves fashion, food and a great cocktail. I have a passion for living a healthy lifestyle without sacrificing fun in life OR breaking the bank. Today, I am so thrilled to start sharing some recipes and ideas with Flatout Bread for this holiday season!

One thing that comes to mind when I think about the holidays is a lot of decadent eating. Between cookies, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie, I can really start to feel weighed down. So when I am hosting a holiday party, I like to keep some items light and fresh! Serving these mini Mexican flatbreads with gazpacho shooters is such a great contrast to some of the heavier holiday fare: they’re practically guilt-free…plus you’re eating your veggies!


Mini Mexican Flatbreads



Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place Flatout HungryGirl Foldit Sliders on a cutting board: separate the sliders, then cut each of them in half to create circular discs. Place cut slider discs on a nonstick baking sheet (or a baking sheet lined with parchment paper). Spoon a small scoop of salsa on each flatbread disc, followed by a sprinkle of queso fresco. Top each flatbread with a slice of fresh tomato.

Bake flatbreads for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Using a spatula, place flatbreads on a serving platter. Garnish each with 1-3 leaves of cilantro.

Gazpacho Shooters


  • 1 clove garlic, peeled
  • 1/4 cup onion
  • 1/2 cup celery
  • 1/2 cup cucumber
  • 1/2 cup green pepper
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tsp chives
  • 3 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups tomato juice


In a food processor (or blender), add garlic and onion. Pulse 3-4 times. Add celery, cucumber and green pepper. Pulse to chop vegetables another 5-6 times. Add chopped tomatoes, chives, red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, Worcestershire and tomato juice. Pulse soup until you reach the desired consistency. Pour gazpacho into a sealed container and refrigerate at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. Serve with a garnish of fresh chives.
