Queso flameado

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
12 To 18 ounces Panela cheese
½ cup Flour
¼ cup Olive oil
1 cup Gold tequila
Lime juice, to taste

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.

Yield: 6 servings
