Delicious peruvian snack that you can make at home.

The Peruvian Pequeños or Peruvian Cheese Stocks are very popular as starter, light lunch or small snack in the evening at a bar accompanying a Pisco or beer. Traditionally only made with a Won Ton wrap like dough filled with white cheese and served with Peruvian style Guacamole, in Lima you find numerous variaciones.



  • 1 Pack Wonton dough sheets
  • 400g White cheese (queso fresco, feta, farmers cheese)
  • Oil for frying
  • 1 Cup of water
  • Peruvian guacamole sauce (View Recipe)


  • First cut the cheese in strips about 1 to 1.5 cm thick and 3/4 of the length of the wonton sheets long.
  • With a brush or spatula, brush the wonton with the water, this will help to close and it will not fall apart while frying.
  • Then put a slice of cheese on one side of a wonton sheet and roll until closed. Crimp the side ends with your fingers or fork making sure the tequeños are sealed well.
  • Fill a high pan with about 2 cm of oil. Heat to 180°C. Fry the Peruvian tequeños from both sides until lightly golden brown.
  • Serve immediately with Peruvian guacamole sauce
