This is something I actually had at Costco one day as a sample. I had never seen anything like it in my life, and so I just had to try it. It was so good and so easy that I just have to share it with you all. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb rectangle shaped queso fresco (I like the one from Costco)
  • 10 ounces bagel chips or 10 ounces crostini or 10 ounces crackers
  • 5 ounces raspberry jelly or 5 ounces blackberry jelly or 5 ounces apricot jam or 5 ounces pepper jelly


  1. Preheat an electric griddle or VERY nonstick pan on medium heat.
  2. Cut cheese into 2" by 1" retangles that are about 1/2" thick.
  3. Spray griddle or nonstick pan with cooking spray and place the cheese rectangles, leaving a little space between them, on the giddle or non stick pan.
  4. Let the cheese brown on that side, about 3 minutes, then flip to brown on the other side.
  5. Serve cheese on bagel chips, crostini, or other crackers with a dap of jelly or jam on top.
