I had never heard of  Flatout Flatbread until I heard about this campaign. What captured my interest was that it looked so healthy and totally doable for bread lovers like me who are watching what they eat. Flatout Flatbread sent me a box filled with some of the varieties they make. Then I found more at a visit to my local Target. Click here to see where Flatout Flatbread is sold in your area.

I came up with a really fun recipe using the Light Original. It comes with six flatbreads and they have 50% fewer calories than traditional flatbreads. 90 calories per flatbread, 9 grams of protein!

Instead of making a wrap of a sandwich, I got creative. I came up with Mexi-Style Bruschetta! Super tasty, one flatbread goes a long way. My husband and I made this for lunch and had a fun time together mixing and matching all the components.

I LOVE bruschetta and thought why not make a Mexi-style version? I did a bit of research and hit the grocery store with my list in hand. The essentials? Avocado, lime, pico de gallo and crema. From there you can use anything!

Here’s what you need!

Serves 2-3 people.

1 hour prep, baking, assembly.

1 package of Flatout Flatbread Light Original (This was my choice, but there are a lot of other varieties to choose from – click here to see them!)

Olive oil

Garlic

Your choice of toppings:

Grilled chicken or beef, diced

Chorizo, cooked

Avocado, shredded cheese

Pico de Gallo

Ceviche

Fresh fruit

First, you need to prep the flatbread. I used two. Coat a cookie sheet with olive oil, and rub the flat bread on it, both sides. Then rub with garlic. Slice into pieces. Let bake at 350 degrees in the oven for 20 minutes or so, keep an eye on it. You don’t want to over bake!

Flip over and bake the other side for a few minutes.

Now prep all the toppings and sort them into small dishes. TIP: If you don’t want to make all of these, like the ceviche, you can visit your local Mexican grocery store and buy some from the hot/prepared food department. This is especially helpful if you have to provide last minute food for a party or gathering!

OK, this is about the size you need, then load up each one! You can make them all the same, or do what we did – get comfy, drink sangria, chat, and create one-of-a-kind mini masterpieces.

I used fresh fruit topped with a bit of crema and then chili spice.

I also made an elote one – corn, crema, chili and lime. Chorizo and avocado was also a delicious combo!mexi-flat-out-bruschetta10

Here are our creations. We ate them up and then made more until we were stuffed. mexi-flat-out-bruschetta13

All this off of two Flatout flatbreads! They were light and crispy and just the right kind of filling for a late summer snack. mexi-flat-out-bruschetta14

This is why I really love this bread because there are so many things you can do with it, I plan to make pizza next, and croutons, pinwheels and more. I like that it’s healthier than the breads I used to buy and serve to my family. I plan to always keep a pack of them to use with leftovers or snacks.  mexi-flat-out-bruschetta20 mexi-flat-out-bruschetta22
