One of our favorite restaurants is Montana’s which is a steak house in Canada. Their food is great but the reason we like going there is for their antojitos. Now we haven’t been there in a while but we missed these antojitos.
So now I had a mission. I wanted to make these at home and make them as close as possible to the real ones. If you’ve never had antojitos and don’t know what they are, well basically they are Mexican street snack foods, and translated the word antojito means little whim. Antojitos are not a full meal, usually just an appetizer.
Now these antojitos are quite spicy, there’s hot sauce in them and a jalapeno pepper. But boy, are they ever good! I love these antojitos, we used to go to Montana’s almost every weekend just to have these.
But now I can make them whenever I want. They are to die for! I know I’ve said I don’t eat too spicy before, but I make an exception for these antojitos. The ingredients are so simple, so it wasn’t too big a challenge to duplicate the recipe, basically it’s cream cheese, red peppers, green peppers, jalapeno and hot sauce. You mix all that together and spread it over a tortilla. I also added a bit of cheddar cheese for a little extra cheesy flavor and BANG!
My husband said they tasted just like the restaurant version. I couldn’t agree more. I succeeded in this little quest of mine.
