After trying a fabulous dish of melted cheese and chorizo at La Fogata in San Antonio Tx, I searched until I found a similar recipe. This one is very close and excellent. From the cookbook, New Texas Cuisine by Stephan Pyles.
Rice symbolizes prosperity and wealth, so rice balls are good for New Year's and wedding celebrations. I love these tasty little morsels, and they go well with many different kinds of food! I've served them with various meats and seafood, and they're always welcome at my table. :) Prep time includes chilling.
After countless attempt of trying to make the traditional bloomin onion recipes, I came up with this one. Friends always request this when they know I am coming to a get together. It takes a little extra work but it is so worth it! I never bring any leftovers home.
I am posting this recipe because it is my very favorite cheese ball ever. You are going to love it. Yes, the prep takes a little while but it is so worth it. Please follow directions carefully for success. Please do not do it with a processor as you want distinctive pieces of stuff. It is a very pretty cheese ball. Cook time is refrigeration time.
Okay, don't let the title scare you. THESE ARE GREAT appetizers even though the ingredients are a little strange. I make them all the time for almost any occasion which we need an interesting "snack". Kids really like them because of the pickles. Make sure that when you are rolling them up, that you roll tightly before inserting toothpick.
I adapted this recipe from the back of the package of wonton wrappers. They can be a little "putsy" to make, but SO good - I get asked to make them again & again! Be creative with the meats & veggies - chicken or shrimp will work. Add any other firm veggies you have on hand - celery, beans sprouts, water chestnuts, etc. You can make these ahead & just reheat for guests. Enjoy!!!
