This has got to be one of the tastiest snacks you can prepare and such an easy Thermomix recipe. I make Brazilian cheese puffs all the time and find new variations to make them more exciting and interesting wherever I can. This one is particularly tasty because it involves chorizo crumble and a piece of chorizo in the center. You could easily leave out the chorizo in the middle and just do the crumble but I think it adds an extra kick. 


  • 150 g chorizo sausage
  • 100 g Mature cheddar in small chunks
  • 150 g whole milk
  • 50 g vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 170 g arrowroot flour or tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 20 g chives chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 220C / 200C Fan / Gas Mark 7. Grease a small 24-hole muffin tin and set aside. 

  2. Place 100g chorizo in the mixing bowl and chop 5 Sec. / Speed 7. Heat a non-stick frying pan with a little oil and fry the crumbled chorizo until browned. Transfer into a small bowl and set aside. 

  3. Cut the remaining chorizo into 24 slices. Set aside. 

  4. Place the cheese in the mixing bowl. Chop 10 Sec. / Speed 9. Remove about 2 Tbsp for sprinkling. Set aside Add the milk, vegetable oil, egg, arrowroot (or tapioca) flour, salt and chives and 1/2 of the fried chorizo. Blitz 25 Sec. / Speed 8

  5. Fill each muffin hole 3/4 with the batter and drop 1 slice of chorizo in each hole. Sprinkle with the reserved grated cheese. Bake for 10-15 minutes until puffed up and golden. Remove and leave in the tin for a couple of minutes, then serve warm, sprinkled with the remaining chorizo crumble.

    These are absolutely delicious!!! The kids devoured them! (You can use a milder salami if Chorizo is too spicy for your little ones.)
