Spice up your parties with Queso! Who does not like Cheese?

Last week I went to a conference in Miami and I met with a whole bunch of really fun Latino girls. I had a great time and memories from home starting to flow through my brain, particularly the memories of having fun and partying with my friends. You see, I consider myself a very social person and I love to party, but I had not gone out Venezuelan style for a long time. That needs to change!

Now you will ask me what is so special about Venezuelan parties? I will summarize the answer on 3 subjects: people, music and food! All 3 are very important factors for the success of the party. I am sure you have great fun friends to party with, so people are normally not a problem. Food and music on the other hand can make or break a party! In a true Venezuelan party fashion, you will have to clear some space for dancing, as well prepare some delicious food and drinks to keep guests satisfied!.
Let me give you some tips on how to turn your party into a Fiesta!
  • Find your best Latin music and play it back to back - merengue,salsa, reggaeton and cumbia will keep people moving the whole night long! Think Zumba and you will get it right!
  • Keep the snacks flowing throughout the night. Try the new Farm Rich Queso Cheese Bites, dips with crackers, (my favorite is anchovy dip - I owe you the recipe), Empanadas, Mini meatballs, Hard boiled Quail eggs with a Thousand Island sauces, etc. You can choose your favorites, but the important part is to have bite sizes snacks so people can eat them quickly while they keep dancing.
  • Serve fun drinks like Margaritas, Cuba Libres (Rum, Lime juice and Pepsi), Piña Coladas and plenty of water.
Back at home we will always serve Tequeños (by far my favorite Venezuelan party food) at all our parties. They are rectangular pieces of white cheese covered with dough (they look like small dough sausages) and then they are deep fried or baked in the oven. I cannot buy tequeños in the US and I miss them so much! However, I have recently tried the new Farm Rich Queso Cheese Bites and at least I got my cheese cravings covered. Queso Cheese Bites are little balls of yummy spicy queso that are lightly breaded. When you put them in the oven the queso melts inside. Some may say that they are just like another cheese stick, but they are truly different from anything I have tried before. They have a kick, yes ,they are spicy and I really liked that.

Now in order to buy all the ingredients for your food and drinks, you are going to need some money right? Well why don't you try to win it?
