Classic Cheese Puffs
Ingredients
  • Coarse sea salt
  • 1½ cups, all-purpose flour
  • 1¼ cups, shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup, butter (cut into chunks)
  • ½ teaspoon, fresh-ground pepper
  • 6 large eggs (beaten to blend)
Process

Boil 1½ cup of water and the butter in a 3-4 quart pan, over high heat. When done, remove from heat and add all the flour. Stir until a smooth thick paste is formed. Make sure that there are no lumps.

Now, add in one quarter of the beaten eggs at a time, beating vigorously after each addition. When the dough is not a bit thick (not slippery) add in pepper and cheese. Take a large pastry bag which is fitted with a ½ round tip, spoon the dough into that bag.

Now, grease a 12x15'' baking sheet with butter. Squeeze the pastry bag and create mounds of dough on the baking sheet. Sprinkle a few grains of coarse salt onto each mound. Bake at 400 ºF, until completely dry and golden, for about 30 minutes. Serve hot.

Shrimp Stuffed Peppers
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup, roasted red peppers, finely chopped
  • 1 (6-ounce) can shrimp (rinsed, drained, and chopped)
  • 20 jalapeno peppers
  • ½ cup, crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (softened)
Process

First wear rubber or plastic gloves and then cut jalapeno peppers in half (lengthwise). Remove the interior membranes and seeds and set aside. Preheat the oven to 400 ºF and also anoint a baking sheet. Take a mixing bowl and add cream cheese, feta cheese, shrimp and roasted red peppers to it. Mix well to combine. Spoon the mixture into the pepper halves. When done, place the halves on the prepared sheet and bake until soft for about 20 minutes.

Easy Bruschetta
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons, fresh basil (chopped)
  • ¼ teaspoon, salt
  • 1 tablespoon, olive oil
  • 12 slices, small Italian or French bread (toasted)
  • 3 large tomatoes (chopped)
Process

Take a big bowl and add oil, basil, tomatoes, and salt in it. Marinate the mixture for at least 4 hours. Do not refrigerate, as refrigerating will make it lose the flavor. After the required time, spoon the mixture onto the bread, to form a layer and serve immediately.

Quesadillas
Ingredients
  • 2 green onions (chopped)
  • ¼ cup, finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • ½ pound, chorizo sausage (casing removed, finely chopped and cooked crispy)
  • Coarse salt
  • 2 cups, Cheddar cheese (shredded smoked)
  • 3 small Roma tomatoes (seeded and chopped)

Preheat a large non-stick pan on medium high heat. Place the tortillas on the pan and cook for about 30 seconds, until brown from both sides. Fill half side of the tortillas with equal parts of chorizo, smoked cheddar, and chopped green onions. Fold the tortillas in half and again cook for 30 seconds, flipping and cooking again. When done, cut the quesadilla into four wedges and serve with salsa.
