So, what is queso?

Queso, a Spanish term for cheese, is a versatile and flavorful food ingredient commonly used in Mexican cuisine. Made from cow, goat or sheep's milk, queso can be enjoyed in various forms, including crumbled, shredded, sliced or melted. Queso's distinct taste varies depending on the type of milk and the aging process. Fresh queso, also known as queso fresco, has a mild, tangy flavor and crumbly texture, while aged queso like queso añejo, offers a nutty, sharp taste and firmer texture. Queso is a staple ingredient in popular dishes such as nachos, quesadillas, and enchiladas, adding a rich and creamy taste to any recipe.
