I've been getting caught up on Howard Tayler's webcomic Schlock Mercenary recently. It's about a mercenary company in the 31st century, and is a pretty funny strip that tries to get the military humor right.
One recurring element in the comic is a snack food called the chupaqueso. Tayler gives a recipe for them that can be made in a 21st century kitchen in this strip from 6 September 2003.
I tried one this afternoon. It was pretty good, actually; I'll have to try it again, with the benefit of experience making the first one. (I didn't cook the shell long enough the first time around.)
