Recipe: Corn on the cob with fried cheese


Makes 1 serving

Kids and adults will love this fun side dish. Even after frying, Queso Blanco holds its shape; if you would prefer the cheese to melt down the sides of the corn try mozarella. This dish was inspired by the Bolivian Plato Paceño.


1 ear of corn
1 slice of queso blanco


1. Set a pot of water to boil and cook husked corn until done.

2. Meanwhile, fry cheese in a skillet over medium heat until both sides are golden brown (or darker, depending on your preferences)

Serve cheese with corn immediately. I like how this cheese looks like a giant tab of butter. I kind of wish it was.
