50-60 g of Kudu Biltong Spicy (for 2 people)
1 portion of guacamole
100 g nachos
50 g cheddar cheese
Place the nachos in a plate.
Chop the jalapenos and spread them on top of the nachos.
Spread Kudu Spicy Biltong on top, and do the same with the guacamole.
Finally cover it with cream cheese or if you are using packed cheddar, then melt it by putting it 60-90 secs in the microwave.
That´s it! Ready to eat.
Tip: to make it creamier and tastier use a different blend of cheeses. Add tomato sauce if you want a bit more juiciness.
40 g of Kubdu Biltong
1-2 chopped mushrooms
2 tsp of home-made tomato sauce
1 roasted pepper
1 tsp of extra olive oil
50 g of mozzarella cheese (optional)
clove of garlic (optional)
Remove the pizzetta package or do it yourself.
Chop the mushroom, the roasted pepper and the onion (and the garlic if wanting looking for a more intense flavour).
Spread the tomato sauce on the surface of the pizzetta.
Place the mushroom cuts, the pepper and the onion homogeneously, plus the Kubdu biltong slices. Put some olive oil on top and leave it 5minutes in the oven at 180-220ºC.
Remove the pizzeta and cover it with mozarrella cheese (to make it creamier) and break the egg right in the middle. Leave it in the oven for another 2-3 minutes just until the cheese has melted.
Tip: play with different ingredients and its textures: aubergine, avocado and baby marrow are great alternatives.
40-50 g of Kubdu Biltong Spicy
6 tomato (very red)
1/2 small cucumber
1 small green pepper
1 garlic clove
2 slices of bread
3 tsp of extra olive oil
1 tsp of vinegar
Cut the bread crust and slice it in squares. Let them dry and harden while you cook the rest.
Clean the tomatoes, remove any remaining stems with a knife, cut them and add them to the blender.
Cut the cucumber, the garlic clove and the pepper. Once they are finely chopped add them into the blender with the other ingredients.
Put 1/2 l water approximately according to the consistency you would like to obtain; then the oil and the vinegar. Finally add most of the biltong. Add salt and pepper and blend it in the machine. Once you get an homogeneous blend, disconnect the blender.
Put it in the fridge for at least an hour so it cools down properly.
Before serving chop some biltong and add it as topping as well as the bread.

This a dish that your guests will love!
Para el guacamole:

1 tomato, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
juice of 1 lime
Salt and pepper to season
For the blinis (makes about 12)
150 g plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
180 ml milk
50 g unsalted butter, melted
Pinch of salt
100gr of Kubdu Biltong

Mash the avocados in a bowl and stir in the onion, tomato, garlic and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper and chill in the fridge for about an hour.
Heat a large frying pan over a medium-hot heat. Brush the pan with some butter. Drop 2 tsps of blini mix into the pan and cook for about 30 seconds until the blini is lightly browned underneath and bubbles appear on the surface. Turn over and cook for about another 30 secs or until it’s cooked. Repeat with the butter and blini mix until it’s finished.
Tip: Warm up the biltong in the oven for about 5 minutes at 120ºC before mounting the blinis, that will enhance its flavour!

To make the pastry:
Sift together the flour, salt and mustard. Slice butter into small cubes, add to flour and rub in lightly with fingertips. Gradually add water mixing it to soft dough, turn out onto a pastry board and shape into a smooth ball. Place the dough in a plastic bag or cling wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Roll out on a floured pastry board and line a 230-mm diameter quiche dish. Refrigerate for a further 30 minutes, then bake blind in an oven at 200ºC for 10 – 15 minutes and leave to cool before adding the filling.
To make the filling:
Sauté the leeks in heated butter and cooking oil until transparent. Scatter leeks on the base of the pastry case. Mix remaining ingredients and pour into pastry case. Bake at 160ºC for 35-45 minutes until set.
1 tbsp olive oil
300 g Kubdu biltong
1 onion, chopped
2 fresh tomatoes, chopped
2 tbsp tomato puree
2 tbsp peanut butter
100 ml boiling water (use stock if biltong is unsalted)
Heat the oil in a non stick frying pan or saucepan and fry the onions and garlic.
Add the biltong and fry for one minute then add the tomato puree. Stir and cook for a minute, then follow with the peanut butter.
After one minute, add the chopped tomatoes and allow it to break down and cook. Within five minutes, it will have cooked down and thickened so add the boiling water, a little at a time: you may not need it all. This stew is meant to be nice and thick. Serve with a side dish of vegetables and sadza or rice.
