Jalapeno Cheese Bites


These are tasty little Jalapeno Cheese Bites. Made with pizza dough that's filled with Tex-Mex cheese blend, and some lightly blanched Jalapeno peppers. The rolls are slightly spicy with gooey cheese melts. Great snack.


Jalapeno Cheese Bites

Ingredients

1 Packet (about 300 to 310g) Fresh Pizza Dough (available at Whole Foods Market)
2 Jalapeno Peppers, halved, seeded, blanched, and sliced
1 to 1 ½ tsp Olive Oil
Sea Salt
Coarsely Ground Black Pepper
1 tsp Mixed Dried Herbs (Oregano, Parsley, Basil)
100 g Tex-Mex Shredded Cheese Blend

Baking sheet, lined with parchment paper

Method

Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 400˚F/200˚C.

Press down the dough on a lightly flour surface. Then pull and stretch the dough into a rectangular shape.

Spread the oil onto the dough, and gently press it into 14 by 8 inches rectangle. Then sprinkle some sea salt, mixed herbs, ground black pepper, and scatter the cheese, and Jalapeno peppers.

Roll up the dough as tightly as you can. Pinch both ends, and slice the log into ¾ to 1-inch rounds. Place the rolls on the baking sheet, cut side up, and bake for about 18 to 20 minutes, or until the cheese has melted, and light golden brown in color.

Makes about 14 Jalapeno Cheese Bites

  1. Next time I make pizza, I'm going to throw a few of these together for my husband. He's going to wonder what he did to deserve such a great little treat.

  4. Angie, these look great! I just wondered if there was a reason you preferred to blanch the jalapenos? It wouldn't have occurred to me, so I'm curious.

    I've got fresh chives and parsley in the garden so I'm going to using them in this tasty-sounding recipe.

    Thanks

  5. @Anonymous: The blanched Jalapeno works better. It remains moist after baking.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
