What are Tequeños?

Tequeños are a highly popular dish in Venezuela and can be found at nearly any gathering, from family reunions to parties and special events. They are easy to prepare and can be enjoyed both cold and hot, on their own or with a dipping sauce.

Guasacaca sauce is one of the most popular sauces in Venezuela and is perfect for accompanying Tequeños. It is a creamy and refreshing sauce made with avocado, cilantro, onion, garlic, and olive oil, among other ingredients. The level of spiciness can be adjusted according to individual preferences.

The Tequeños dough is straightforward to make and can be customized to suit personal tastes. Some people add a bit of cream cheese or garlic to the dough for an extra flavor kick.

White frying cheese is the most commonly used cheese for making Tequeños, but any cheese with a good texture for frying, such as mozzarella, can be used.
