Here are some of the most popular *criolla* dishes that are readily available in local restaurants and made by Venezuelans at home. Pastelitos (Pasta-lee-toes; with the accent on the lee) are served at coctail parties as hors douvres. You can cut this recipe in half. You will have to translate from metric.) Mix ingredients together and let it set 15 minutes. Roll out very thin and cut out circles, using a small glass. Put a small amount of the filling in the center of the circle and cover with another circle. Now press fork prongs around the edge to seal together. Fry until golden brown in very hot oil. Filling: Grind up uncooked pork. Chop onions, garlic, green pepper and tomatoes in a food processor. Mix pork with these vegetables, season with salt and pepper and place in a cast iron pot over a low flame. When the pork is cooked add capers, raisins and wine cooking it a while longer to dry the mixture out a bit. Now you are ready to make the pastelitos. TEQUENOS Tequenos (Tea-cain-yo; with the accent on the second syllable: the n has a tilda over it) are served as an hors douvre, or - made larger, the size of a small hot dog - they may be found served on the street corners and at the beach. Use the same dough as for pastelitos. Roll out very thin and cut in 1/2-inch strips. Take 1/2 kilo firm white cheese and cut it in strips 1/2 by 1/2 by 2-1/2 inches long. Roll the dough strips around the cheese tightly in a spiral form completely covering the cheese strips and sealing the ends. Fry quickly to brown lightly in deep fat that is not very hot (the inside should be just soft) and serve at once. These can be frozen uncooked.
