Tequeños are a popular Venezuelan delicacy consisting of small dumplings filled with cheese. While they are best prepared and served fresh, sometimes it is not possible to eat them right away. In this blog post we will look at how long tequeños can be stored in the refrigerator to ensure they remain safe to eat and palatable

Fresh Tequeños

Fresh tequeños that are refrigerated immediately after preparation can be stored in the refrigerator as long as they are consumed within 2-3 days. It's important to store them in an airtight container or plastic bag to ensure they don't dry out or lose flavor.

Cooked Tequeños

Cooked tequeños kept in the refrigerator can stay fresh for up to a week as long as they are securely wrapped and stored correctly. To ensure they are safe to eat, they should be heated prior to consumption to ensure they are heated to the correct temperature.

Frozen Tequeños

Tequeños can also be frozen to extend their shelf life. To freeze them, they should be well wrapped and labeled before freezing so that people know when they were frozen. Frozen tequeños can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.


Tequeños are at their best when freshly prepared and consumed immediately, but if that's not possible, they can be stored in the fridge or freezer. It is important to package and label them securely to ensure they are safe to eat and remain edible.
