Makes 18 cannoli
Cannoli are typically a Sicilian sweet, a fried pasty shell filled with creamy ricotta and other flavorings. I've consumed many of these sugary favorites. But sometimes a little revolt against the norm is an empowering party principle. Revelry revolutionaries, your reward will be savory and satisfying.
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2. Heat the oil in a medium-size skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring regularly, for 5 minutes. Add the corn, beans, garlic, salt, and pepper and cook for 5 minutes more. Pour into a large mixing bowl. Add the cheeses and bread crumbs and mix well.
3. Fill the cannoli shells evenly with the mixture. Place the filled cannoli on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, checking to make sure they don't overbrown.
4. Let cool slightly, and serve hot on a large platter.
A Note: I like to serve these with a bottle of Frank's Red Hot sauce alongside.
A Drink Pairing: Keep up a revolutionary spirit and serve these with El Presidentes. For each, fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice cubes. Add 1-1/2 ounces white rum, 1/2 ounce dry vermouth, 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice, and 1/2 ounce grenadine. Shake, strain into a cocktail glass, and serve with a lime twist.
