This is not your average cheese stick situation folks. I have had this idea in my head for sooooo long and finally just went for it last week. Not gonna lie, I always get a little worried what I have in mind won’t work- but gosh dang it! It did! Successssssss. And now I get to share it with y’all. Please let me know if ya give it a try!
Fun fact: My dad used to own the bowling alley in our town for a short period of time, so we would be there a lot. I have lots of memories of spraying shoes, getting bowling lessons from my dad, hearing the pins crash together. But also chicken fingers and cheese sticks. It’s amazing the memories food can bring you.
Mexican Style Cheese Sticks
Recipe by The Daily Kale
6-8 cheese sticks (I used Oaxacan but mozzarella is totally fine)
1/2 cup Almond Flour
1/2 cup Tortilla Chips (crushed * I used @sietefoods )
Pinch of salt, paprika, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, black pepper
Pinch of fresh cilantro .
Stir together the dry ingredients to create your coating mixture, lay out evenly on a big plate or even surface. Stir eggs in a bowl and set a side.
One by one dip the cheese stick in the egg and let excess drip off and then roll around-coat/ press the mixture into the cheese stick. Repeat again, dipping into the egg and then again into the crumb mixture.
Place on a parchment paper lined pan. Freeze for a minimum of 3 hours. Very important to freeze them for 3 hours minimum. Can be froze for longer period of time.
Bake in an air fryer at 400 for 5 minutes. Serve with salsa for dipping !
