Ingredients
  • ½ pound queso blanco or queso para freir
  • Vegetable oil, optional
Instructions
  1. Cut the queso blanco into squares.
  2. Heat the pan to medium-high (with oil if required) and sear the queso blanco.
  3. Turn as each side browns. Don't worry if you don't quite get all the edges, it's hard to do.
  4. Drain on paper towels.
  5. Serve with your favorite taqueria type salsa for dipping. The mildly salty cheese holds up well against spicy chipotle and chili salsas, while providing a nice balance to the heat.
Notes
If using a non-stick pan, oil is not needed.
