My Girl Scout troop is participating in our annual International Festival and the girls chose the Caribbean with Belize being their Country of choice. So...with that said I need suggestions for recipes, something we can make and serve to the other scouts and their families. Finger foods or something that we can serve small portions of is kinda what we're looking for. I'd like to make something like mini papusas but don't know if that is realistic. Any suggestions are welcome.

Ceviche and chips is a good idea, and can be made with whatever seafood you have available.

colo, now how in the world did those Girl Scouts come up with that idea? I'm sure you had a "little influence" in that decision and it's a great one!

I recommend Belizean Girls Scout Cookies! wink

The girls wanted to do something by the ocean and Mexico was already taken so the next best thing (actually best in my book) is Belize. We are using an EZ UP,wrapping 3 sides in blue cellophane then hanging fish and making and "sand" ground with seashells and plants. It's going to be fun.

Here is one

Tortillas (flour)
2 Cups Flour
1/4 Cup Shortening
1 tsp Baking Powder (prove)
About 3/8 Cup Water
1/4 tsp Salt

Mix dry ingredients well. Cut in shortening with a fork until it disappears. Add water & knead until you have dough. (Add water, one tsp at a time, if it's too dry.) Cover & allow to rest for 10 minutes. Cut into six equal pieces and knead each piece until you can make a nice round ball. Coat the inside of a flat bottomed bowl with shortening. Flatten each ball into a round tortilla on the bottom of the bowl. (Sebastiani, our housekeeper, greases the countertop with Crisco and uses that.) Fry tortillas on a hot comal until they are slightly brown on both sides. The comal should be VERY hot, and if you cook too long, the tortillas will be tough.

Fry-Jacks. Belizean version of a sopapilla, these are perfect as a breakfast snack. Use the recipe above, but form the dough into an apple turnover shape (triangular) and fry in fairliy deep fat until they brown and puff up. Wonderful with honey or Gallon Jug jams.

Wrap chicken livers or a 1" cube of chicken in 1/2 slice of beacon skewer with tooth pick and fry or grill. Can't beat'em.
