Queso Flameado

Yield:
6 servings
Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 12 to 18 ounces Panela cheese
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 cup gold tequila
  • Lime juice, to taste
Directions

Slice the cheese 1/2inch thick and place in a bowl of ice water for about 5 minutes. Pat the cheese dry and dust with the flour, shaking off any excess.

Heat a large cast iron skillet, over a high heat. Add the oil and fry the cheese, turning once, until golden brown. USE CAUTION: Standing far enough back so you do not get near the flames, ignite the tequila. Let the flames die out.

Remove the cheese and tequila to a platter and finish with a sprinkling of lime juice. Serve with pickled chipotle peppers and warm corn tortillas.
