Tequeños are a popular Venezuelan delicacy consisting of small dumplings filled with cheese. Although they are known in many countries around the world, there are differences in how they are prepared. In this blog post, we're going to look at whether tequeños are typically fried or baked.

Fried Tequeños

Fried tequeños are the traditional way of preparing tequeños. They are baked in vegetable oil until golden brown and crispy. Fried tequeños are available in many restaurants and takeaways in Venezuela and other countries. They have an extra crispy and crunchy exterior that is achieved by deep frying

Baked Tequeños

Although fried tequeños are the traditional way to prepare tequeños, there are also baked tequeños. Baked tequeños are baked in the oven instead of being fried in vegetable oil. They are lighter in texture and tend to be slightly healthier than fried tequeños. However, baked tequeños are less commonly available in restaurants and takeaways, and are often prepared at home.

In terms of taste, there is no significant difference between fried and baked tequeños. Both have a delicious combination of crunchy dough and melted cheese. The difference is mainly in the way of preparation and the consistency.

In fact, both types of tequeños are delicious and have their own benefits. Fried tequeños have a crunchier texture and are the traditional way to prepare tequeños, while baked tequeños have a lighter texture and tend to be slightly healthier. Ultimately, it comes down to personal preference as to what type of tequeños is preferred.
