Nacho Cheese Twists

I like to serve these cheesy twists as an appetizer. But they would also pair well with a bowl of chili. Frozen puff pastry makes them easy to prepare.—Tammy Miller, Largo, Florida

    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    2 dozen


  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped ripe olives
  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder


  • In a small bowl, combine the cheese, salsa and olives. Unfold one pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface; spread half of cheese mixture over half of pastry. Fold plain half over filling; press gently to seal.
  • Repeat with remaining pastry and cheese mixture. Cut each rectangle into twelve 3/4-in.-wide strips. Twist strips several times; place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
  • Combine egg and water; brush over twists. Lightly sprinkle with chili powder. Bake at 400° for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
