Cheese tequeños with guacamole
Recipe type: Hors d'oeuvre
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: Many
  • 1 pack wonton dough sheets (you can get this in many supermarkets, or Chinese grocery stores)
  • Cheese (I bought a pack of queso fresco and it was perfect)
  • Oil for deep frying (I used canola)
  • 4 ripe avocados
  • Mayonaise
  1. -Cut the cheese in strips about ¾ the length of each wonton sheet.
  2. -Put the cheese on one side of the wonton sheet, and start rolling the sheet around it, leaving a little edge unrolled. To close, wet your finger and pass it along the edge of the wonton sheet, and then finish rolling. Do the same to close the side ends, pressing with your fingers to make sure the dough sticks well.
  3. -You can do these first steps in advance, cover the uncooked tequeños, and leave the frying till the end, right before serving.
  4. -For the guacamole, mash the avocado and mix with mayonnaise, to taste.
  5. -In medium/high heat, bring a lot of oil (1/2 cup or more) to a zizzle and put a few tequeños in the frying pan. Wait until they’re starting to brown on one side, and then turn and do the same on the other side. Place on a dish with paper towel, which will absorb the excess oil.
