Chupaquesos ("suck cheese") are a cheesy dish invented by Howard Tayler in his webcomic, Schlock Mercenary. The basic idea is to fry cheese until it reaches a rubbery consistency, then cover that rubbery layer with cheese and toppings, then fold it into a tube.


  • About 3oz (85g) of "shell" cheese, shredded (e.g. cheddar)
  • About 1oz (28g) of "filler" cheese, optionally a different kind of cheese, shredded (e.g. parmesan, Monterey Jack)
  • Toppings:
    • Bacon
    • Chopped cold cuts
    • Sandwich toppings - banana peppers, chili peppers, marinated mushrooms, etc
    • Marinara sauce


  1. In a medium-large non-stick (or cast-iron if you know how to use one) pan, sprinkle the "shell" cheese evenly. It will melt and bubble, and eventually form a layer of cheese.
  2. Once the underside is orange or brown colored, flip it over.
  3. Sprinkle the filler cheese down the middle, and put whatever toppings you want down the middle. It's advisable to get the toppings ready in advance - it's a time-critical procedure once it's flipped.
  4. Fold the shell over, and let it cook long enough to melt the filler cheese if desired. Serve and eat right away - do dishes later.

Serves one. Prep time about two minutes, cook time about two minutes.
