Queso Frito

Recipes

Ingredients:

– One 10-ounce Real California panela cheese, sliced into 12 pieces and patted dry (see notes) – 1/3 cup cornstarch – 1/4 cup vegetable oil

Directions:

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Place cornstarch in a shallow bowl and set aside.

In a large skillet over medium heat, warm oil. Working in batches, dredge cheese slices in cornstarch, shaking off excess, and cook until golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Serve immediately. Serves 6.

Notes: You can substitute queso de freir for the panela.

Queso frito is delicious alongside eggs for breakfast and can be enjoyed any time wrapped in a warm corn tortilla.
