Fried Queso Fresco


  • 1 block Queso Fresco
  • 1 tbsp Olive OIl


  1. Slice your queso fresco into 1/4 inch thick slices.

  2. Heat skillet and oil to medium-high heat. Be sure the skillet is FULLY heated before adding in the cheese or it will melt and not form the delicious crust!

  3. Add cheese into hot skillet and let cook for 1-2 minutes or until a golden-brown crust has formed on the cheese. Flip cheese over and repeat.

  4. Remove cheese from pan and place on a paper-towel-lined plate to absorb the excess oil.

  5. Let cool then serve immediately. Eat by itself or dip in tomato sauce for extra flavor.
