Prep Time:20 min
Cook Time:10 min.
Total Time:30 minutes
Yield:serves 4 to 61x
Vegetable or Canola Oil for frying
1 cup finely crushed nacho cheese tortilla chips
1 cup panko bread crumbs
16 oz. Mexican Velveeta Cheese, cubed into bite size pieces
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tbsp freshly chopped parsley for garnish
Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed pot or deep fryer to 350 degrees F.
Combine the finely crushed nacho cheese tortilla chips with panic bread crumbs in a shallow bowl and set aside. Place the lightly beaten eggs in another shallow dish, and the flour in another shallow dish. You should have three separate dishes lined up and ready to go.
Take each cheese cube and dip it in the egg, then coat it with flour, then dip it in the egg one more time, followed by the bread crumb mixture. Set the cheese cubes on a lined tray until you’re ready to fry them, or freeze and fry later.
Carefully place the cheese cubes in the oil, a few at a time, and cook until golden brown. Some cheese might ooze out, but there is still plenty of cheese inside the cube. Place fried cubes on a paper towel lined plate to drain. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and enjoy right away.
BAKE INSTRUCTIONS: Place cheese cubes on a foil lined baking tray and spray generously with non-stick spray. Bake @ 425 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown on outside.
