Yield: 1 Servings
|\N \N||Cotija cheese|
|\N \N||Olive oil|
Cotija, an Hispanic-style cheese, softens but does not melt when heated. It can make a deliciously different crouton for salads and soups and doesn't need breading.
To prepare, cut leftover cheese into small cubes, saute briefly in a preheated nonstick skillet with olive oil until browned on all sides, 1 minute to 2 minutes.
Pop them into your favorite salad or soup just before serving. A dash of hot pepper sauce before serving will add some zing to this mild cheese.
