Tequeños are known in all Latin America. In Peru they are very popular as starter, light lunch or small snack in the evening at a bar accompanying a Pisco or beer. You find them on every menu in restaurants and no party goes without them.
Traditionally Tequeños are Wonton wrappers filled with Peruvian white cheese (queso fresco), fried in hot oil and served with Salsa de Palta (Peruvian-style Guacamole), in Lima you find many variations including ham and cheese, Lomo Saltado or Aji de Gallina filling. Yummy!
Tequeños are simple and quickly prepared; no mess in the kitchen, no "surprises" while cooking, just trouble-free and tasty Peruvian food. While the white cheese filling is the traditional one, you can use other cheeses, add a flavorful ham or fill them with left-over lomo saltado or aji de gallina. And the best, you can prepare them in advance and leave them in the fridge for a few hours or freeze them and when needing a quick lunch or friends unexpectedly showing up, just quickly fry them.
