World Cup fever is now upon us, which means everyone is searching for the perfect finger-foods to serve while watching the exciting games. Small bite-sized appetizers are the perfect companion to any sporting event as they’re easy to eat, and usually don’t require a plate—which means no accidental spillage during game time. This comes in handy big-time when you’re jumping up down after each goal! Check out these two delicious recipes for some new ideas to add to your Brazil 2014 menu, and by the end by halftime we’re positive you’ll have nothing but empty plates.
First up is Reina Rivera from Soy Mama en Casa with her Chorizo Croquettes. These little potato-based morsels are bursting with the authentic flavors of our Cacique® Pork Chorizo that you can find in markets nationwide. The croquettes are inspired by her native country of Honduras, and she recommends that they be enjoyed alongside your favorite cold beverage. Try them with one of our tasty Cacique® Yogurt Smoothies to bring that perfect balance of sweet to the savory chorizo. The recipe is written in Spanish, but you can press the “Translate” button if you’re using Google Chrome as your browser. You can get the recipe by clicking here.
Fabiola Donnelly from Not Just Baked created something really special with her new take on a classic finger food. Her Cotija, Chorizo, and Roasted Poblano Potato Skins give this fan favorite a Mexican twist in both flavors and colors (red, white, and green for the Mexican flag!). They are easy to make and provide hearty carb-and-protein sustenance to help keep your energy up during even the most exciting games. You can find the recipe by clicking here.
