1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
3 pcs. big size egg, beaten
1 small size red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 small size green bell pepper, finely chopped
3 pcs. hard-cooked eggs, quartered into wedges
5 pcs. regular hotdog, sliced into halves
1/2 c. sweet pickled relish
1/4 c. raisins, chopped
1/4 cup cornstarch

Cooking procedure:

Embutido Mixture

Except the hard boiled eggs and hotdogs, in a big bowl combine all the ingredients and mix until well blended. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Divide the mixture into five portions. Divide also hard boiled eggs and hotdogs into five portions.

Embutido Filling

Prepare five square pieces of aluminium foil and place on top of each other on a flat surface. Spread and flatten one portion of the mixture onto the center of each foil, Place one portion of egg wedges and hotdog slices at the center of each mixture and hand roll until the mixture covers the eggs and hotdogs. Now roll the aluminium foil into a tightly packed log about 2" in diameter, twist and seal both ends. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.

Embutido Steaming

Arrange the embutido side by side in a steamer and steam for one hour. Let it cool, discard aluminium wrapper and slice into rings. Serve with ketchup or sweet chilly sauce.
