Whether you're making a snack, dip, main course, stuffing or topping, you can rarely go wrong with corn cheese. Specific flavour combinations also have this mouth-watering feature. Chilli garlic is one such duet that has legions of fans worldwide. The spiciness of the chillies mixed with the amazing aroma of garlic can take dishes to whole new levels. There is nothing complicated about balancing these flavours - even a beginner can do it! The result will still be delicious and tempting. You can get started with the recipes below:
