What makes a mozzarella stick fancy? When you call it a cheese flauta. What makes it even more delicious? Nacho cheese chips. This is not'cho ordinary mozzarella stick!



  1. Bring some oil to a simmer in a pot. While that's heating up, crush the chips to crumbs with a food processor or a mortar and pestle. Transfer the chips to a shallow bowl, add about 1/3 cup water and stir to make a batter. 
  2. Coat the mozzarella sticks with the batter and deep-fry them in the oil until they are golden brown, about 5 minutes. Pat down the excess oil with a paper towel and serve with a dipping sauce of your choice.
