Garnaches are addictive! Belizean garnaches are a popular, tasty appetizer for parties, or just as a snack.
Garnachas, as any Belizean knows, are a common snack or party food. I grew up eating them at recess while in primary school. Students could buy a garnacha for 15 cents each. If you had a shilling you could get one garnacha and a ten cent ideal. Amazing.
Why are garnaches so great?
The simple stack of delicious ingredients are what make the Belizean garnacha a delicious salty, spicy, and creamy treat. The ingredients of a garnacha are also something that many people have on hand or can get readily. See our recipes for the all the ingredients (except the cheese): Homemade Fried Tortillas, Black Beans, Cortido. If you haven’t make garnaches yourself already, try making them for an appetizer or snack soon! Leave us a comment, and tell us how the recipe worked for you!
You can just leave off the cheese, but you might think that’s boring and sad. There are many types of lactose free cheeses: vegan, soy and yogurt based. Many of them aren’t very tasty, but we have found Go Veggie, Dairy Free Grated Topping to be a good dairy-free substitute for garnaches if you can’t just go cheese-less!
This recipe for Belizean garnaches will make about 12 garnachas or enough for 4 people. Maybe :).
