Tips and tricks

To thinly slice the fennel and apple for the slaw, use a mandolin. You can find jalapenos in the condiments aisle of supermarkets.

Manchego is a Spanish sheep's milk cheese available from delicatessens and specialty food stores. You can also use another good melting cheese such as cheddar.
