Dynamite Recipe - Chili Cheese Sticks

By 4:17 PM

Who's looking for a super duperly easy Dynamite Recipe? I'm going to be honest, I didn't really know how to cook dynamite cheese sticks until my kids' nanny wouldn't stop hankering about them and wouldn't stop that I finally gave in and made some! Didn't realize they were so easy to make! And take a look at the photos below! They look so pretty when they were done! If a noob like me was able to whip this up, I'm pretty sure you can do thus, too!

Mind you, they may look small but these dynamite rolls are packed with flavor. A popular appetizer here in the Philippines especially in the Visayan region, this is best eaten with a drink ready!

Not recommended for kids of course, but my 12 year old son who loves spicy food enjoyed this one. My husband? Let's just say he ate most of them. Although I love spicy food, I could only handle two. Loser. 

It wasn't really super hot at first but it does cause a nice explosion in the mouth after a while.

Dynamite or Chili Cheese Sticks are great as an appetizer but it is also a popular pulutan in this side of the world. Great paired with beer!

Another important tip before you try this dynamite recipe; use plastic gloves when handling your chili or your hands may feel like it has been doused with mentholated oil for the rest of the day. Trust me on this one. 

Let's get cooking!


  • 15 green cayenne pepper (siling haba/espada)
  • 15 spring roll wrappers
  • cheddar cheese sliced into thin strips
  • Oil for deep frying


  • Cut a slit on one side of the chili, de-seed, wash and pat dry with a paper towel
  • Insert sliced cheese inside the chili
  • Wrap chili with lumpia wrapper leaving the stem exposed and seal with a bit of water
  • Deep fry for about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown, turning it over at least once 
  • Serve warm with mayonnaise as a dip
