These delectable rice balls are crafted with fluffy white rice, packed with spicy hot chili for an extra kick. We’ve infused them with the freshness of green onions and the richness of cheddar cheese, creating a harmonious blend of textures and tastes. To complete the experience, we serve them with a side of pickled jalapeno slices for that tangy contrast and an extra layer of heat.
