DIRECTIONS

  • Buñuelos:
  • Grind the cheese very finely in food processor.
  • Mix the cheese with the cornstarch, eggs, brown sugar and salt.
  • Roll into balls the size of golf balls and drop into medium-hot vegetable oil and fry slowly.
  • After a few minutes increase temperature and fry until they are golden.
  • Remove and place on absorbent paper.
  • Natilla:
  • Dissolve the cornstarch in the milk.
  • Add the brown sugar.
  • Cook over low heat, stirring constantly. When the sugar is melted and begins to thicken, add the cinnamon.
  • Continue to cook for about 15-20 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • After 15-20 minutes, fish out the cinnamon sticks (if used), and pour the Natilla onto a very large serving platter or into a large bowl to cool slightly.
  • Cut the Natilla into chunks and eat with a Buñuelo, taking a bite of the Buñuelo and then the Natilla. Enjoy!
