A tequeño is a snack, prepared with wheat dough and white cheese.
A stick of white cheese is wrapped in dough and deep fried. Other countries, like Colombia, may know it as a “Dedito de Queso.”
It is one of the most popular Venezuelan snack foods at parties, especially weddings.
The name "Tequeño" comes from the town of "Los Teques",
the capital of the State of Miranda, where it is believed it was originated. The oldest known references to it come from the first decade of the 19th century.
At that time the richest families of Caracas would spend long vacation periods in Los Teques and would start preparing them with the leftover dough of another Venezuelan food known as "pastelitos".
