We’re in the full swing of the holidays! Thanksgiving dinner is under our belt and Noche Buena and Christmas morning is in our sights. The tree is up, the lights are twinkling, the garland is strewn, and we’re headed back into the kitchen to cook up dish after dish of delicious classics. To keep us inspired, we’re putting a TLK twist on the classic song 12 Days of Christmas. You know the one with 12 drummers drumming, 11 pipers piping...all the way down to the partridge in the pear tree!
We’ve already covered 12 Tasty Tacos, shared our 11 Favorite Flans, made 10 Types of Tamales, toasted with 9 Christmas Cocktails, dug into 8 Enchiladas, indulged with 7 Pasteles Dulces, and cooked up 6 Pans of Paella. Today, we’re all about 5 Cro-Que-Tas! (C’mon, sing it.) Make some cocktails, invite over friends, and get ready to cook (and sing) along!
No party is complete without croquetas to snack on. And these Chicken Croquettes are a perfect make ahead party snack. Store your rolled croquettes in the fridge in sealed plastic bags and all you have to do when your guests arrive is fry them until crispy and golden brown. They're also a great use of any leftover chicken from holiday meals.
A seasonal take on the classic croqueta, this recipe weaves in the holiday flavors of cranberries and chestnuts with cream cheese, goat cheese, and blue cheese. Make these ahead and freeze them until you're ready to use them, then fry them off for an instant party bite.
