This Spicy Taco Squares recipe is a delicious party food made with puff pastry and your choice of toppings. It’s an easy appetizer for parties and game day!
When it comes to entertaining, it’s important to balance all of the desserts with delicious appetizers. You know me, I love my sweets but once the holidays roll around I get pretty overwhelmed by endless treats.
To make these Spicy Taco Squares, start by cutting thawed puff pastry sheets along the fold lines (in thirds) and then cutting each strip into 4 pieces.
Prepare the spicy taco cream cheese and spread about one tablespoon in the center of each puff pastry. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
While the squares are baking, prepare the toppings. Dice the tomatoes and slice the green onions.
To cut cilantro, I love using kitchen shears. Rinse the cilantro in water and gently dry with paper towel. Put some of the cilantro in a small bowl and use the kitchen shears to snip it into small pieces.
Once the spicy taco squares come out of the oven, top them with sour cream, chopped lettuce, diced tomatoes, sliced green onions and cilantro. You can go crazy on the topping if you want and add all of your favorites like taco meat, sliced olives, diced onions, diced jalapenos, chopped peppers and diced avocado.
These spicy taco squares can be served warm or cold. If you want to prepare them ahead of time, refrigerate after preparing them and warm briefly before serving. Try making spicy taco squares as an appetizer for your next party or celebration!
