  • 2 x 320g pack ready rolled puff pastry
  • 40 g mature cheddar cheese
  • 1 pack Mexican tomato sauce from the Stand 'N' Stuff Extra Mild kit you could also use Old El Paso Mild Salsa instead


  • Pre-heat your oven to 220ºC/200ºC fan.
  • Line a couple of baking sheets with greaseproof paper or a non-stick baking mat.
  • Lay out 1 sheet of puff pastry.
  • Spread the tomato sauce evenly over the puff pastry.
  • Finely grate the cheese (40g) and sprinkle it evenly across the puff pastry.
  • Place the 2nd sheet of puff pastry on top and gently press down with a rolling pin (not too hard, just enough to help hold everything together. Don't worry if a little filling squeezes out!).
  • Using a sharp knife, carefully slice the pastry into thin strips about 1 cm wide.
  • Take one strip and holding one end firmly, carefully twist the other end until it forms a spiral (like in the picture). Place it onto the baking tray and repeat until all of the strips are twisted - make sure you leave about a 2cm gap between the twists as they'll expand during cooking.
  • Place into the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown and crisp.
  • Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the tray of a couple of minutes before moving them to a cooling rack to cool completely.
