Chili Cheese Puffs

"Very nice as a quick snack or to serve with soup. They are mild spicy and you can spice them up by adding some ground cayenne or chilipepper. The original recipe uses fresh chillies but the canned ones make these puffs more moist. If you want to make them with fresh, use 2 green chillies, seeds removed and finely chopped."

    These are very tasty! I will add a little more salt next time (I used 1/4 tsp this time). The only change I made was adding a grind of fresh black pepper (will add more of that next time too). Used skim milk and 2% cheese with much success.<br/>~Made in loving memory of Annelies~

    These were really good. I sprinkled cornmeal on my baking sheet. That really kept them from sticking.

    Made these today, and they are great little cookies....just want a little extra heat next time. I think when I make them next, I will us pepper jack cheese along with the can of chilis. Thanks for the great recipe.

    YUMMMMM! I experimented with one batch of these, I think I will have to make another one, I added in some cayenne pepper to the batter, I ran out of parchment so I baked them on foil, so make certain to grease your foil very well there is really no fat in these so they do stick. The trick is let them cool before you remove them! Great recipe Pets! thanks, Kitten:)

    I made these with the canned chopped chilies last night for a Mexican party. Everyone really liked them. I also added a dash of cayenne (red) pepper. Next time, however, I plan to add quite a bit more red pepper, or perhaps, some cooked, crumbed hot sausage. These baked up nicely and were attractive, I thought. Oh, and I used parchment paper on my cookie sheet, which I HIGHLY recommend for almost anything! Thanks for a great recipe! ~Ohgoodie


Hello, my name is Bonnie and I am a very beautiful cat as you can see if you look at the picture at the top of this page.... What??.. I am supposed to talk about you??? But it says here: About Me!! Well all right then ...... My mom is Dutch and has moved to England in October 2007, after living 15 years in the Netherlands with my English dad. They don’t have any human children and “created” their own family, which means I have to share them with Hannah, she is a 6 years old tortie cat, Abby the dog, she is a 9 year old Beagle, and a one year old black Miniature Pincher named Poppy, I refuse to tell you my age but I am a georgious lilac British Shorthair cat!! It is obvious she adores pets just by looking at her name she uses on Zaar (many on Zaar call her Pets or Petsie Poo), her name in real life is Annelies and that is a common Dutch name. My mom always liked to cook, but since she joined Zaar it got out of control, and it doesn’t help that she is disorganized. Printed recipes everywhere in the house, the recipe binders have got bigger and just between you and me, her hips too!!! I have lived in Holland all of my life until now, but they lived in several different countries/places:- desert and coastal Oman, up North and West in Holland, Vancouver-Canada, Aberdeen- Scotland and in Norway they lived in Bergen and Oslo. We have all moved together to England, as you can see I’ve already learnt the language! I heard her say to Dad that this is the last time she moved to another country...she's had it with moving from one place to another! ( its her age...she's getting grumpy) Mom is 55 years old but I always hear her say that the date of her birthday does not mean that much to her, the date of her cancer anniversary is more important, because so far she is a survivor. Besides cooking she has other interests too, crafts, gardening and soap making. She likes Zaar and is one of the hosts on the German-Benelux Forum here on RecipeZaar. She would like to thank everybody who tries and comments on the recipes she has posted on Recipezaar, your feedback is very much appreciated. <img src=""> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src=""> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src=""> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"><a href="" target="_blank"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a><a href="" target="_blank"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"></a>
