Frito-Lay Twistos Baked Snack Bites

Check out the Twistos Baked Snack Bites recipes below. I can’t wait to try out some of the recipes.

Whipped Goat Cheese and TWISTOS Parmesan & Garlic Flavored Baked Snack Bites

11 ounces goat cheese
3 tablespoons whipped cream cheese
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
TWISTOS Parmesan & Garlic Flavored Baked Snack Bites

Combine the goat cheese, cream cheese, and thyme leaves in a food processor. Whip for 60-90 seconds until smooth. Taste and season with salt and pepper as needed. Serve with TWISTOS Parmesan & Garlic Flavored Baked Snack Bites. Note: can be stored in an airtight container for up to 4 days.


Roasted Red Pepper Dip with TWISTOS Asiago Flavored Baked Snack Bites

1 cup almonds
3/4 cup TWISTOS Asiago Flavored Baked Snack Bites
2 roasted red bell peppers
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 small shallot, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon pomegranate molasses
1 lemon, juiced
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil

Toast the almonds in a small skillet over medium high heat for 5 minutes — just until fragrant. Set aside. In a high-powered blender or food processor, process the TWISTOS Asiago Flavored Baked Snack Bites until pulverized. Combine all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Adjust seasoning if needed and serve with TWISTOS Asiago Flavored Baked Snack Bites or assorted crudité.


Hot Caprese Dip served with TWISTOS Bruschetta Flavored Baked Snack Bites

1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
2 8-ounce containers of fresh mozzarella (cut into cubes)
1/2 cup store bought basil pesto
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
TWISTOS Bruchetta Flavored Baked Snack Bites

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a small baking dish add the halved cherry tomatoes. Drain the mozzarella from any water that it’s packaged with and add a layer of the mozzarella over the tomatoes. Drizzle the pesto over the top and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Bake for about 25 minutes or until very hot and bubbly. Serve immediately with TWISTOS Bruschetta Flavored Baked Snack Bites.


Stuffed Peppadews with Goat Cheese and TWISTOS Bruschetta Flavored Baked Snack Bites

1/3 cup ground TWISTOS Bruschetta Flavored Baked Snack Bites
6 ounces soft goat cheese, room temperature
2 large garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
2 tablespoons heavy cream
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper, to taste
1 jar peppadew peppers (about 20-30 peppers)

In a high-powered blender or food processor, process the TWISTOS Bruschetta Flavored Baked Snack Bites until pulverized. In a small skillet over medium heat, toast the pulverized TWISTOS Bruschetta Flavored Baked Snack Bites until fragrant. In a bowl, combine goat cheese, garlic, herbs, and crumbled TWISTOS Bruschetta Flavored Baked Snack Bites, folding together until smooth. Add heavy cream as needed to thin out filling. It should be the consistency of icing when it’s ready. Season the filling with salt and pepper. Transfer the filing to a piping bag and fill each peppadew with about 1/2 teaspoon of filling until it just peaks out of the top. Serve immediately and garnish with extra chopped chives as desired.


Bruschetta Breaded Chicken Fingers

2 boneless, skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 egg, beaten
1 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup crushed TWISTOS Bruschetta Flavored Baked Snack Bites
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
1/2 cup vegetable oil for frying

Carefully cut each of the chicken breast into bite-sized pieces, about 1-2 inches each. Place the chicken strips into a large resealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, mix together the egg, buttermilk and garlic powder. Pour the liquid into the bag with chicken. Seal, and refrigerate for 2 hours. In another large resealable plastic bag, mix together the flour, crushed TWISTOS Bruschetta Flavored Baked Snack Bites, salt and pepper. Remove the chicken from the refrigerator, and drain off the liquid. Place the chicken into flour mixture bag. Seal and shake to coat. Heat the vegetable oil in a large, heavy bottom skillet over medium heat. Carefully place coated chicken in the hot oil. Fry until golden brown on both sides and fully cooked. Remove cooked chicken with a pair of tongs and drain on paper towels. Serve alongside your dipping sauce of choice.
