What is Queso Blanco?

Queso Blanco is a Latin American cheese. Its translation literally means white cheese. It has different variations throughout all Latin American countries. Tropical Queso Blanco can be described as fresh, hard and a bit rubbery, with a mild, sweet flavor. It’s perfect for eating fresh by itself or with other table foods. The unique advantage to this cheese is that it softens but doesn’t melt, so it’ll keep a better consistency when cooking.

Fresh cheeses like Queso Blanco don’t have a maturing or refining process, which give them that freshness and lighter taste.

Is Queso Blanco good for your health?

Cheese is a great source of calcium, fat, and protein and is low in carbs. It also contains high amounts of vitamins A and B-12, along with zinc, phosphorus, and riboflavin.

How to use Queso Blanco?

Queso Blanco is often diced into half-inch cubes, which make it perfect for cheese platters with fresh fruit, guava or quince paste, marmalade, nuts or chutney. It can be added to salads, like a summer fresh Caprese salad, or slice it for sandwiches. It’s also good for stuffing meatballs or adding to a delicious lasagna.

Sometimes the simple way is the way to go.  Put a piece of Queso Blanco on the plate next to rice, beans, tamales, or it can be a perfect side by itself. It’s a tasty option for your vegetarian guests.
