Hola bellas! If you haven’t tried tequenos before, let me tell you a little bit about them. Venezuelan tequenos are a basically cheesy breadsticks made with white corn meal. The original recipe has the cheesy breadsticks deep fried, which is not healthy, so I decided to share a healthy version of the recipe so that you can still enjoy the savory flavors of the corn meal and cheese together guilty-free.

This plate is perfect for breakfast or for a late afternoon snack! It is also a meal that the kids love! I will link the cutter shapes I used below in case you want to use the same for yours!


1 cup of white corn meal

2 Tbsp olive oil

1/2 cup of warm skim milk or reduced fat milk

1 egg

1 cup of shredded reduced fat Mexican blend cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F
  2. Scramble the egg and set on the side
  3. Warm the milk in the microwave for 30-40 seconds
  4. In a medium sized mixing bowl mix all the ingredients using a silicone spatula
  5. Start making the shapes you want using your hands. If the dough is too dry, add a little bit of water. I used these cute little dinosaur, star and heart shaped cookie cutters that I got from Amazon for the kids breakfast and they loved it! Tip: Make sure that you use the rings and not the cutters to shape the dough! I use the cutters for things that are firm so that way the cutters don’t get messy!
  6. Place shapes on a baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes or until golden

That’s it mammas! I hope you and your kids enjoy this recipe! Don’t forget to follow my Instagram page for more healthy recipes and fitness tips!
