Manchego Cheese with Quince Jam, Agave, and Pecans

#LolasMercadito | Quince Jam

If you’re still scrambling for ideas on what to make or take as an appetizer this Thanksgiving, today I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes of all time. It takes a whole three minutes to prepare and quite frankly, it’s a recipe that doesn’t even require a recipe, but every time someone tastes this delectable treat, they always marvel in delight and ask me how it’s made.

Manchego Cheese with Quince Jam | #LolasMercadito

This is my go-to appetizer when someone invites me over or if I have guests show up unexpectedly. With four simple ingredients, you’ll knock off your amigos‘ socks from here to next Thanksgiving. Happiest of holidays to you and your loved ones!


¼ pound Manchego cheese
Quince jam or quince paste (good quality guava paste, apricot jam, and fig jam are also good substitutes)
Crushed pecans
Organic agave syrup


  1. Cut Manchego cheese into 1/8-inch slices (I like to shape mine into triangles).
  2. Top with a dollop of quince jam, crushed pecans, and a drizzle of agave syrup.
