Got Milk? Holiday Dishes
This year, impress your guests with dishes that are quick and easy to prepare without sacrificing the classic flavors, got milk? teamed up foodie “The Eddie Zamora,” to offer easy holiday recipes that put a modern twist to traditional favorites.
Guava and Pecan-Cranberry Cream Cheese Balls
Created by Eddie Zamora from “The Yum Yum Foodie” blog
Makes 15-20 cheese balls
8 oz. cream cheese at room temperature
5 oz. guava paste
1 bag pretzel sticks
1 package tea biscuits
In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese and guava paste with a hand mixer until smooth. Add water into a separate bowl to prepare the cheese balls. Dampen hands in water and form cream cheese mixture into approximately 15-20 tablespoon-sized balls. Dampen hands as needed during the process to avoid the mixture from sticking. Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours or until firm. In the meantime, crush a few tea biscuits in a bowl and set aside.
Next, roll the chilled cheese balls in the crushed tea biscuits, pressing crumbs so that they adhere. Keep cheese balls refrigerated until ready to serve. Just before serving, skewer each cheese ball with a pretzel stick. Enjoy with a cold glass of milk.
Baked Tostones with Crème Fraîche and Chicken Vaca Frita
Created by Eddie Zamora from “The Yum Yum Foodie” blog
Makes 4 servings
2 large green plantains
1 8oz. container crème fraîche
1 cooked and shredded rotisserie chicken
1 sliced white onion
2 tbsps. olive oil
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. garlic
¼ tsp. cumin
½ lime, sliced into wedges
Chicken vaca frita:
In a bowl, mix the shredded chicken with cumin, garlic powder, lime juice and salt and pepper to taste. Let marinate for 20 to 30 minutes. Fresh garlic can be used instead of garlic powder if desired. Next, place a large pan over medium-low heat and add olive oil and onions. Sauté until the onions are translucent. Add the shredded chicken to the pan and fry for about 10 minutes, or until brown and crispy. Set aside.
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Spray a large baking sheet with oil. Trim the ends off the plantains. Score each plantain along two sides, just deep enough to cut through the skins. Microwave the plantains until they become soft in the center. For 2 plantains, this will take about 6 to 6 1/2 minutes. For 1 plantain, about 3 to 3 1/2 minutes, depending on your microwave. The skins will become black. Next, peel the plantains and cut them into 3/4-inch thick slices while hot. Each plantain should yield approximately 12 slices. Place the hot plantain slices in a medium-sized bowl and smash each one with the bottom of a jar or can. The recommended tool is a tostonera, which is commonly found in Latin Markets, but anything flat will work.
Place all of the flattened plantain slices on the prepared baking sheet and generously spray with oil, season with salt and bake for approximately 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden on the bottom. Remove from the oven and turn all of the slices over. Place back in the oven and bake for another 8 minutes or until golden and crisp. Remove from the oven and season with more salt. Add a spoon of crème fraîche, a slice of avocado and cover with the chicken vaca frita. Serve with a cold glass of milk and enjoy.
