What do you snack on when you want something a little bit special?

Sure, you could open a box of crackers and munch away, or maybe snitch some cookies, or if you’re feeling virtuous an apple, banana or orange.

But what if you had something just a cut above, that would tide you over from the mid-afternoon slump until the evening meal at 7 p.m.? Something that would be a good counterpoint to your afternoon latte, yet wouldn’t ruin your dinner.

I give you Mexican Elephant Ears — puff pastry lightly stuffed with two kinds of Mexican cheese, a bit of chorizo for some flavor and oomph, and a few flecks of cilantro so we can say it was green. Roll it up in a fanciful shape, slice, bake and away you go!

These will keep in an airtight container for a couple of days. But trust me, they won’t last that long. Orejas de elefante will be your new favorite snack.
