Mango-Avocado Salad with Panela Croutons and Chipotle Crema Mexicana

Mango-Avocado Salad with Panela Croutons and Chipotle Crema MexicanaWhen you cut Cacique’s Panela cheese and fry it over high heat in a bit of oil, you can sear it — just as you would steak.  No joke! Rather than melt into a sauce, the surface of this delicious cheese, caramelizes and becomes crisp.  It’s absolutely amazing!

When I tasted a fried piece of the Panela at the blogger immersion event Cacique headquarters, I was absolutely blown away.  If my eyes were closed, and I didn’t know what I was eating, I might have thought it was a crisp piece of buttered toast.  That is exactly what it tasted like.  Really!

Mango-Avocado Salad with Panela Croutons and Chipotle Crema MexicanaSo when writing my third recipe for Cacique, I knew I had to include this fried Panela deliciousness, so I made croutons — garlicky croutons!  And they’re unbelievably tasty amongst the other ingredients in this salad.

The recipe for this scrumptious Mango-Avocado Salad with Panela Croutons and Chipotle Crema Mexicanat is currently being featured here on the Cacique USA blog.

Enjoy!

    I see panela in the corner Latin market near my house sitting right next to the other Cacique cheese I usually buy but I’ve never tried it. Sounds delicious. GREG
