Christmas Appetizer: mussel cream with guacamole tarts

The year is coming to an end and Dolores has pleasantly surprised us again by sending in one of her recipes. An ideal recipe for the New Year’s Eve dinner: very easy to prepare but with a result that will surprise the whole family. As she says herself on her blog Mi gran diversión, “there’s no need to get complicated with all the appetisers; if some are easy, quick to make and tasty, why look further?”.


  • 1 tin of Serrats mussels in brine
  • 60 g of cream cheese
  • Pastry shells (Dolores tells us that you can also use vol-au-vents, crisps…)
  • Guacamole


  1. Drain the mussels and crush them with the cheese and some oil from the mussels to form a paste.
  2. Put the paste in a pastry bag and fill the shells (Dolores recommends that you don’t fill them too early, so the shell stays crunchy).
  3. Put a bit of guacamole on each of them.

Bon appétit! Thanks Dolores!
