With the New Year, I am excited to be preparing more nutritious recipes for my family. Rather than pan-fry things like shrimp, I have started cooking many of our meals with Mazola® Corn Oil. A clinical study showed Mazola® Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about this claim, see Mazola.com.
Did you know that? That really made my day because I grew up using Mazola® Corn Oil and prefer to cook with it.
When it comes to eating better for us meals, my kids are slightly picky. I admit, it has been a challenge to get them fully on-board when it comes to eating nutritious meals. If a meal does not look colorful or fun they tend to snub it which is quite frustrating. That is why I have to put my thinking cap on to make meals that contain wholesome foods presented in a fun way. These kid-approved, 15 Minute Easy Yummy Shrimp Guacamole Cups meet the mark on tastiness and presentation.
For today’s recipe, I used Mazola® Corn Oil which is made of 100% pure oil with no additives, and is cholesterol free. I love that it is a neutral tasting oil so that the great flavor of your food comes through. In the past, I’ve pan-fried my shrimp with butter in the past, but making the swap to bake it with Mazola® Corn Oil was such a great decision! It tasted great and helped me to stay on top of my New Year’s goals.
It was a perfect swap for baking my shrimp with and produced tender, flavor shrimp that really complement these guacamole-filled cups.
Truth be told, I love lots of lime juice and cilantro in my guacamole, but my picky kids do not. They prefer just a little onion, and that is it! I was a little hesitant to try this basic combination but I think the flakiness of the cups and the spice of the shrimp balance everything out.
I also made an additional lighter swap by using Greek Yogurt instead of sour cream in these cups. I do not know about you, but I cannot even tell the difference! Rather than load up on a creamy cottage or cream cheese blend that I would normally use in my cups, I opted for a dairy-free guacamole as an additional swap. This adds in more nutrients and lots of taste which complements the cups.
This recipe is perfect alongside some rice or a salad, and really encourage kids and adults to eat a more wholesome meal.
I was really impressed with how tasty these 15 Minute Easy Yummy Shrimp Guacamole Cups turned out!
