Cabaza de Ajo

This is a wonderful appetizer comprised of roasted garlic, jack cheese and salsa Verde.

Roasted Garlic
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2. Peel away the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin, leaving the skins of the individual cloves intact. Using a knife, cut off 1/4 to a 1/2 inch of the top of cloves, exposing the individual cloves of garlic.
3. Place the garlic heads in a baking pan; muffin pans work well for this purpose. Drizzle a couple teaspoons of olive oil over each head, using your fingers to make sure the garlic head is well coated. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 400°F for 30-35 minutes, or until the cloves feel soft when pressed.


Roasted Baguette 
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2. Cut baguette into small slices.  Baste with butter and sprinkle with Green Chili powder.
3. Cook just short time until lightly browned.

Ingredients for Cabaza de Ajo:

  • 3-4 cups of Jack cheese grated
  • Roasted Garlic
  • Salsa Verde

Place grated cheese on microwaveable plate.  Add roasted garlic randomly.  Randomly place Salsa Verde to desired taste.  Microwave until melted.

To Serve:
Use a spoon or knife and place Cabaza de Ajo on the baguettes and enjoy.
