Queso Blanco Cracker Snacks

Prepared and recorded August 4, 2012. Often, mid-morning or late in the afternoon, a hunger arises that is difficult to ignore. Yet, one doesn't want to kill their appetite for lunch or dinner. Ideal is a small volume, high protein, high fat nibble or nip. These crunchy, cheesy, sweet hot snacks do nicely.
1 1/4 inch thick slice of queso blanco, cut into four pieces
2 t apricot, mango, or jalapeno preserves
4 small crackers
Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium high. Place cheese pieces in the hot dry skillet. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, until lightly browned. Flip, and cook a minute or two more until the second side is also toasty. Arrange each piece on a cracker, and spoon on a 1/2 t of the preserves. Eat cautiously! They will be hot. Serves one.
