Soon enough, we’ll be ready to enjoy the ultimate football showdown. The drinks and snacks have to be ready in order to enjoy the game and celebrate with loved ones.
In Peru, one of the most popular snacks are tequeños; delicate wonton dough rolls stuffed with cheese and served with a sauce similar to guacamole, but can be stuffed with nearly anything found in Peruvian cuisine. This time I used lomo saltado, but they can also be filled with ají de gallina, saltado de camarones, tacu tacu, caramelized apples, vegetables, etc.
Originally, tequeños come from Venezuela, but we have given them our own Peruvian touch, making them different from the Venezuelan version.
Since these are normally fried, I recommend making them ahead of time and keeping them in the oven at low heat so that when you’re ready to eat them they’re still nice and hot, but not dried out. Tequeños don’t reheat well, so it’s best to prepare them close to when they’ll be served. The filling must be ready and cold. The dough can be purchased in the supermarket or any specialty store, and the sauce can be made in minutes.
These tequeños are simple snack that are versatile and delicious.
