By Nadia Aidi
Trust me… This will be a showstopper


  • 8 oz queso fresco wheel
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp black sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp panko
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp chipotle adobo
  • Olive oil


  • Pat dry your cheese really well
  • Mix the sesame seeds and panko in a plate
  • Whisk an egg and strain onto a plate
  • Pass the cheese through the egg wash on all sides
  • Completely coat the cheese in the sesame seed mixture and let sit in the fridge for 10-15 minutes
  • In a preheated pan, add your honey and chipotle adobo. Mix for 1-2 min on low
  • Preheat a pan for 2 min on high. Add some olive oil (about 1/4 inch) and when it hits 350F or the bottom of a wooden spoon bubbles, add cheese and cook for 2-3 min on both sides or until golden
  • Let it sit on a paper towel to remove excess oil
  • Serve with the honey, scallions and enjoy with ciabatta
