Southwest Salsa Rice Bites Appetizer
35 mins (prep 15, cooking 20)
10 ingredients
12-24 servings
Although this recipe sounds like another one named similarly, it has different proportions so be aware they are different.This recipe is for a unique appetizer with a southwest kick. Fun to make and fun to eat. Very simple ingredients but delicious. These were eaten so fast and everyone wanted the recipe guest and family alike. The rice gives it unique texture. I use cheddar pepper jack so you can too if you have trouble finding just pepper jack. Further, I used Japanese sticky rice (not Uncle Bens or the the like) and Tostitos salsa but you can sub in your favorites. The sticky rice really binds it. Picture coming. Enjoy! ChefDLH
