Brazilian Cheese Puffs Recipe

We’re a family that’s on the move and sometimes we need food that’s easy to grab and go. That’s why some of our kids’ favorite snacks are these Brazilian Cheese Puffs (known as Pao de Queijo in Brazil).

You can find our recipe for these Brazilian cheese puffs on the Cacique USA blog. To make these puffs, we used Cacique’s classic Queso Fresco. It’s a soft, buttery cheese that crumbles very easily and softens when heated without becoming stringy. (When our kids first tasted these cheese puffs they thought there must be some kind of cheese in there but they couldn’t quite put their finger on what it was).

Amazingly, they’re also gluten-free. The main flour used for these puffs is tapioca flour. You can find tapioca flour in the gluten-free or specialty flour section of a well-stocked supermarket.

What will you eat these with? We served them as quick and tasty snack, but they make a great side dish for dinner.
