How to cook Dynamite Cheese Sticks or Dinamita
Dynamite Cheese Sticks Recipe (Lumpia Dinamita) – Fill your empty stomach with this tasty snack and appetizer at the same time. This food is Filipino’s favorite appetizer! You can usually see Dynamite Sticks on some occasions or at the side of the street. Wrapped in a spring roll and filled with cheese, this spicy snack isn’t for adults alone.
Children can also try this. Good thing, some green chilies aren’t too spicy. People who are not into spicy food can actually tolerate this. I love eating this recipe every time our family have a get-together. We also serve Dynamite Cheese Sticks whenever we have visitors at home. It is the best food to eat while lying on your couch while watching television or when you want to kill time. Eating is my favorite when things get boring.
Filipinos called it Dynamite or “Dinamita” because of the spicy flavor and the considerable resemblance of this siling-haba to real Dynamite – a finger-food which makes people crazy over it. At the first moment, I tried this food, and the taste was surprisingly delicious for me. I think I can finish several pieces in one sitting.
Preparing the Dynamite Lumpia sticks is pretty simple. You only have to choose from the variety of pepper. Some of the types are Jalapeño and habanero peppers. If you want spicier variation, go for the Jalapeño instead. If you want a less spicy recipe, you need to remove all the seeds carefully inside after you cut the pepper in lengthwise. The cheese neutralizes the spicy flavor.
