    This is a traditional recipe from the region of Madrid, Spain's capital. For the cheese, use any mild cheese that melts well, such as Monterey Jack. Found on-line and posted for Zaar World Tour 5.

      These were good. I did add chopped water chestnuts for a bit of crunch, garlic and salt and pepper out of habit. They were easy to roll and the bake time was perfect. Thanks.

      I modified this recipe a little as I didn't need an appetizer, but could see these flavors making a lovely side dish. Made as written, but scooped into a small casserole dish and baked until golden. Delicious!

      This is a very good recipe, I made half the batch with the grated cheese and half with Feta. They were both good. Thanks
