Para Freir Cheese

Hispanic Cheese Makers (Nuestro Queso) Para Freir (frying) is a firm, mild cheese most commonly used for frying. It has long been a staple in Central America and the Caribbean where it is appreciated for its ability to fry without any breading. It is a perfect cheese to serve hot because it has the unique characteristic of not melting even when exposed to high heat used in deep fryers. It makes a great quick and delicious snack. Frying or pan-searing softens the cheese and results in a golden brown crust with a creamy, warm interior while maintaining its shape.

Hispanic Cheese Makers (Nuestro Queso) Para Freir recipe is one of the best cheeses in its category and has won the Bronze Medal at the American Cheese Society competition.
