Venezuelan tapas.

Alcoholic beverages are sometimes referred to in Venezuela as palos, and so the usually simple tapas served with them as appetisers are therefore dubbed pasapalos. The best known are tequeños, a bit of pastry stuffed with cheese. Then there are serpentinas, little white-bread roll-ups with ham, cheese, mayonnaise, and sometimes tomato sauce and peppers. Another popular pasapalos, especially during Christmastime, is pan de jamón, which is like a strudel filled with ham and bacon mixed with raisins and pimento-stuffed olives.
