These churro bowls are perfect for filling with ice cream or other desserts. The sweet, crunchy bowls are easy to make and fun to eat.

I know it’s only April but my mind is already on summer and all the ice cream and desserts I hope to make and eat this summer. Like these adorable mini churro bowls. I’m obsessed with churros. They are easy to whip up and eating them makes me happy. So far I’ve made Spanish churros, baked churros, churro waffles, and now these churro bowls.

We recently went on a Coronado Walking Tour with Bite San Diego. Bite San Diego offers food tours for various parts of San Diego. I love going on food tours whether it’s in my own city or in cities we’re visiting. We’ve done a few Bite tours in the past, so when we were invited to check them out again, I was happy to take them up on the offer.

The website provides a list of places for each tour, an estimated amount of time and distance walked. After a lot of research, Coronado seemed the most appealing to me because even though I’ve lived in San Diego for so long now, I haven’t really explored Coronado all that much and my knowledge of food spots in Coronado is pretty limited. When we do visit, it’s usually just to see the beaches and the famous hotel.

The weather was absolutely gorgeous the day of our tour. Our tour started at Coronado Ferry Landing, which I’ve never even been to before in all the times I’ve been to Coronado. Our guide, much like all our past Bite tour experiences, was bubbly, friendly, full of enthusiasm, and just made everyone feel so comfortable. I really admire people who are tour guides. I don’t think it’s something I could handle. Our group had a good mix of people visiting from out-of-town and locals, like us, who just love food and wanted to get to know Coronado a little better.

Candelas

Our first stop was at Candelas, which had a beautiful view of the water. We sampled a carnitas taco and warm cheese soup. The cheese soup was a big hit at our table. It was quite rich and creamy and reminded me of drinking cheese dip in soup form.

At each stop,we had about 20 minutes to eat and mingle and order drinks if we were so inclined.

Have you tried the new Sargento® Snack Bites™ cheese snacks? They are bite-sized cheese sticks that make a convenient and delicious snack.

I was thrilled when I heard about this new product. I have cheese everyday as part of my snack routine, so these really intrigued me. Not only are these cheese sticks a perfect size for packing or portioning, but they come in four bold and fun flavors so that you have a variety to choose from: Savory Garlic & Herb Jack, Chipotle BBQ Cheddar, Colby-Pepper Jack, and Wisconsin Sharp Cheddar.

Usually I just snack on cheddar cheese, so I was really excited by the flavor options and I loved seeing flavors that you don’t normally find in the cheese aisle.


Honestly, it was hard to choose a favorite. I tried the Savory Garlic & Herb Jack first, and I loved its bold flavor. The garlic and herbs complement the soft, creamy Monterey Jack natural cheese for a delicious snack.
