Definitely on the Christmas Eve menu this year! :)
Two questions -- do you have any recommendation on how much chili powder to substitute for the chopped red chili? I want to add a little flavor but have not worked with peppers before and am a little intimidated by the idea. (I once burned out my tastebuds for an evening by eating a nacho that had simply touched a jalepeno!)My second question is what is the dipping sauce in the picture?Thanks! Looks like a fun recipe!
I'd do about 1/2 tsp of mild chilli powder but I really don't think it would be as good. The chilli's there for flavour more than for heat. Fresh chillis really aren't scary, just buy mild ones and you'll be fine! :) I'm not a fan of really spicy things either.The sauce is just ketchup! Worked perfectly hehe
Haha, indeed bites is better! I love finger foods, and since I'm in charge of the veggie platter this year at my family Christmas buffett, I'm looking to you to post more awesome things like this and the cookie bites please =D
Oooh ok, challenge accepted! I'll get my thinking hat on :)
oooh these look sooo good! mmmm!
I made this for "Friendsgiving" this year and everyone loved it. 3 servings (60 balls maybe?) and it was gone very quickly. Thank you for this recipe. I cannot wait to try the others!
Yay glad everyone liked them! Thanks for letting me know! :D
Ooo, these sounds so good...another appetizer to add to my Christmas dinner party..thanks!
Think I need to replace the carrot with chopped onion or pepper as I don't like carrot - do you think that would work?
Hmm I think thinly chopped pepper could work, it can't hurt to experiment! You could even try grated courgette (zucchini) but you'd probably need to squeeze all the moisture out. Let me know if you try it! :)
I made these tonight. I used a tsp of mild chili. I tasted the mixture when it was just the shredded cheese and carrots and the chili powder and it was A-MAZING! I wanted to keep going back to it. Something about the chili powder and the carrot.But I have to say that after adding the rest and cooking them all the flavor was gone. I was super bummed. Did I do something wrong, or is there little taste to these once cooked?Thank you for the fabulous idea!
These definitely have flavour when cooked! As I said to the above commenter, I really don't think chilli powder will ever be as good as using fresh chillis - they're not really there for heat, more for the lovely flavour that most peppers get when they're roasted, so I think that was probably the problem. Try using fresh chillis next time!
