    Pick up some fresh cheese at the store

    Choose your favorite fresh Mexican Cheese. I prefer Queso Blanco for frying but Queso Fresco will work as well. Remove the cheese from the plastic.

    Fry the cheese

    Heat up a non-stick pan on medium-high heat for 1-2 minutes. Place the sticks, a few at a time on the hot pan. You will see the edges start to bubble, but the cheese will not melt.

    Turn the cheese

    Serve the cheese

    Remove the hot cheese to a paper towel to absorb any greasiness. Serve immediately (within minutes) with your favorite salsa. Fried cheese is also delicious with fruit preserves.
