The Pick and Roll Recipe

Life of Dad and have asked me to be a brand ambassador with 15 other Dad Bloggers for the #FrozenChefMadness promotion. The bracket is set and here is my full court press.

I took at least three frozen food items from the Easy Home Meals Product List and created my own dish which I call the Pick and Roll. It is Taquitos with a Mango and Sweet Corn Chutney and Guacamole. All it took were three frozen ingredients and a few enhancements to make it special.


1 box frozen Jose Ole' Taquitos
1 bag (16 oz) frozen Mango Chunks
1 bag (11 oz) frozen Green Giant Honey Roasted Sweet Corn - Seasoned Steamers
1 avocado
1 large tomato
1/2 cup cilantro
1/2 red onion
1 tsp lime juice
1/4 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees as indicated on box of taquitos
  • While it is heating up, dice the tomato, cilantro, and onion and set aside
  • Take 3/4 cup of the frozen mango and run it under cold water for 5 minutes. Drain and dice, set aside
  • Put the Green Giant Honey Roasted sweet corn in the microwave for 4 minutes. Let stand for 1 min.
  • We want the corn to be cooked but not piping hot as it will go in the chutney
  • When done, mix mango, 1/4 of the bag of corn, half of the tomato, onion, and cilantro and mix
  • Chill this mixture in the fridge.
  • Half the avocado and scoop out the insides into a bowl and mash
  • Add the other half of the cilantro and tomato and mix well
  • Add the salt and lime juice to create the guacamole, then chill it in fridge
  • Once the oven is ready, put the taquitos on a baking sheet on the middle rack for 14 minutes
  • Take them out of the oven. You can crisp up the tops by lightly basting with oil and broiling for 3 min.
  • Let them stand for 1 minute before serving.
  • Present the chutney in a bowl with the guacamole on the side for a special game treat.
  • Portable and good for you, this side is sure to score some points with your team.

Easy Home Meals will choose the winners on the basis of:
