So good! Not the healthiest of appetizers. But hey! Cheese is a good source of calcium and if you use olive oil for frying that's not as bad as other oils, right? --------* If you have it in your pantry use Spanish smoked paprika if not whatever paprika you have on hand will do. Also use short aged manchego. Manchego that has been aged for over 6 months is better for grating. If you can't find manchego us mozzarella.
