Who’s looking for a super duperly easy Dynamite Recipe? I’m going to be honest. This was my first time making thiss. Didn’t realize they were so easy to make! And take a look at the photos below! They look so pretty when they were done! If a noob like me was able to whip this up, I’m pretty sure you can do thus, too!
Mind you, they may look small but these dynamite rolls are packed with flavor. A popular appetizer here in the Philippines especially in the Visayan region, this is best eaten with a drink ready!
Not recommended for kids of course, but my 14 year old son who loves spicy food enjoyed this one. My husband? Let’s just say he ate most of them. Although I love spicy food, I could only handle two. Loser.
It wasn’t really super spicy at first but it does cause a nice explosion in the mouth after a while. A nice surprise if I may say so.
Dynamite or Chili Cheese Sticks are great as an appetizer but it is also a popular pulutan in this side of the world. Great paired with beer or your alcohol of choice. Quick reminder though, eat (chili cheese sticks) and drink moderately!
Another important tip before you try this dynamite recipe; use plastic gloves when handling your chili or your hands may feel like it has been doused with mentholated oil for the rest of the day. Trust me on this one. I learned the hard way. Ha!
Let’s get cooking!
