- 1Combine the flour, oil, egg, salt and sugar in a bowl.
- 2While kneading, add a tablespoon or two of water.
- 3At first it just makes a mess, but as you knead it it starts to take shape.
- 4Keep kneading until it does not stick to your hands.
- 5If you need to, take the dough out of the bowl and knead it on a floured cupboard, adding flour until the dough does not stick to your hands.
- 6Let the dough rest for 1-2 hours .
- 7While the dough is resting, cut the cheese into strips into a finger-like shape.
- 8They should be maybe 1/2" by 1/2" by 3".
- 9Don't make the"fingers" too long, or they will be more difficult to use later.
- 10After the dough has rested, shape it into balls slightly larger than your fist.
- 11Roll them out until they are 1/4-0.125 inch thick.
- 12Cut the rolled-out dough into long strips that are 3/4" wide.
- 13Wrap the cheese"fingers" with the dough strips.
- 14Make sure you cover all the cheese and seal the dough, because otherwise the cheese will leak out of the dough when you are frying it.
- 15After you have wrapped the cheese in dough, dust the uncooked"tequeños" with flour and fry them in oil.
- 16These are (obviously) fattening, but they are delicious!
