Ingredients

  • Oil, for frying
  • 1 small bag nacho cheese-flavored tortilla chips
  • 4 mozzarella string cheese sticks

Directions

Bring some oil to a simmer in a pot. While that's heating up, crush the chips to crumbs with a food processor or a mortar and pestle. Transfer the chips to a shallow bowl, add about 1/3 cup water and stir to make a batter. 

Coat the mozzarella sticks with the batter and deep-fry them in the oil until they are golden brown, about 5 minutes. Pat down the excess oil with a paper towel and serve with a dipping sauce of your choice.
