Yummy part of this post

los tequeños!

If you haven’t eaten this you really have to!

Tequeños are small sticks of cheese wrapped in slightly sweet dough and fried to golden perfection. 

It wouldn’t be a Venezuelan party without them!


  • Dough – 2 cups of flour 
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • 2 teaspoon of salt
  • ½ cup of water 
  • Filling –  Queso Blanco, or another cheese that can stand up to frying – get the white gouda at Costco 🙂
  • Frying – Canola oil


  1. In a large bowl mix all ingredients for the dough.
  2. Knead for 10-15 minutes until smooth. 
  3. Cut the dough in half and cover. Roll out one half of dough until very thin on a lightly floured surface.
  4. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut dough in strips roughly three times the size and twice the width of the cheese sticks. 
  5. Using one strip of dough, wrap the cheese diagonally, overlapping the dough. Fold over the edges and pinch to seal.
  6. Repeat this process with the remaining dough.
  7. Heat 1 inch (2 cm) of oil in a pan. Fry them until crispy and golden on both sides (about 1-2 minutes)
