The soccer tournament in Brazil is a time when cultures from around the world gather to share a common interest: sports. However, there is another common interest that is also worth sharing: food. It’s the perfect time to learn more about flavors that we do not usually taste in our everyday diet. Today, we have two recipes that contain special ingredients so you can try something new while you watch the next big game.
Ericka Sanchez from Nibbles and Feasts created this recipe for Cheese-Stuffed Squash Blossoms with Spicy Chipotle Cream Sauce. Squash blossoms are a summer favorite in Mexico so it’s important to take advantage of them while they are in season. When stuffed with Panela cheese and lightly battered and fried, these flowers make a delicious snack that you won’t normally find on the menu. You can get the full recipe by clicking here.
Christina Duffy from Una Colombiana en California drew upon her Colombian heritage to create this unique recipe for Guava Paste and Cheese Sandwiches. If you are unfamiliar with Guava paste, it is a thick sweet preserve that you can find at most ethnic grocery stores around the country. The paste can be combined with cheese on a toothpick and eaten cold, or heated in bowl for a gooey spread for toast or crackers. She recommends eating it with Manchego or Queso Quesadilla, but any Hispanic cheese will do. You can get the full recipe by clicking here.
